    If it is one license that covers the three states, then you would use the singular. If you have a separate license for each state, and they are all going to expire, you would use the plural.

    Either could be. If you have one licence which covers all three states it's version 1 (singular).
    If you have three separate licences, one for each state, it's version 2 (plural).
