A legislative committee in Lansing could vote this week on a measure requiring the state to develop a “choose life” license plate in Michigan.
The measure is promoted by anti-abortion groups such as Michigan Right to Life.
Under the proposal, revenue generated from the plate sales would go to organizations which have projects promoting alternatives to abortion, such as Michigan Right to Life.
Michigan Right to Life’s Ed Rivet says Michigan is the only state along the I-75 corridor which does not have a “choose life” plate.
Start up of a new plate costs Michigan about 15-thousand dollars, according to the Michigan Department of State.
The bill is before the Senate Transportation Committee.
