Choose Life license plate legislation passes the Michigan Senate

By a 26-11 vote, legislation to create a "Choose Life" specialty plate in Michigan was approved by the Michigan Senate today. The legislation now moves on to the Michigan House. 

Funds generated by the sale of “Choose Life” plates in Michigan will be directed to the Choose Life Michigan fund. The board of the nonprofit prolife committee, Choose Life Michigan, will then disperse the money to organizations that submit grant proposals for specific abortion prevention projects.

The state Senate has approved a bill that would allow for the sale of license plates as a fundraiser for Choose Life Michigan.

Senators voted 26-11 along party lines Wednesday to approve the bill, which would collect a $25 donation for buyers of the license plate. The $25 would go to the Choose Life Fund, backed by Right to Life Michigan.
