SPRINGFIELD, Ill., July 29 (UPI) -- The Illinois secretary of state's office said it is researching the possibility of boosting revenue by putting corporate logos on license plates.

Officials said the office's study will determine potential costs of the program and whether there would be interest from the public, the Chicago Tribune reported Friday.

The officials said drivers would potentially receive registration discounts for choosing the corporate-branded plates.

The office's study is due Jan. 1.
