Michigan drivers could get a “Choose Life” license plate that would benefit anti-abortion groups under a bill passed largely along party lines today in the Senate.
Republicans supported the bill as a benefit to women and fetuses.
Democrats said the bill was politicizing the state’s license plate system.
The state now offers 29 fund-raising license plates: 15 for Michigan’s public universities and 14 for causes ranging from agricultural heritage to breast cancer awareness to supporting water quality and wildlife habitat. Drivers pay $35 for the specialty plates, with $25 going to the organization and $10 to the state to pay for the cost of producing the plate.
