A plan to offer a “Choose Life” license plate to raise money for “life affirming programs and projects” will soon head to Gov. Rick Snyder after passing the House on Thursday.
The Republican-controlled House approved the plan 65-43 after the Senate adopted the measure 25-11. It’s now headed back to the Senate for a final confirmation vote before it will be sent to Snyder for his consideration.
The legislation has been endorsed by the anti-abortion group Right to Life of Michigan, and supporters say the plate would raise money to help women who give birth to unplanned babies. But Democratic opponents said it is part of a longtime GOP plan to stop legal abortion.
