Choose Life license plate bill passes Michigan House

On Thursday afternoon, the Michigan House of Representatives votes 65 to 43 to pass the "Choose Life" license plate bill.

This bill is now headed back to the Senate for a concurrence vote, since a small amendment was added to the House version.

The plates would cost $35 with $25 going to a Choose Life Fund that would be set up, and $10 to the state for the cost of producing the plate. These funds generated by the sale of the plates will be directed to the Choose Life Michigan fund. The board of this nonprofit prolife committee, Choose Life Michigan, will then disperse the money to organizations that submit grant proposals for pregnancy help initiatives.
