ProLifeWI: “Choose Life” Wisconsin License Plate Legislation Introduced

Beginning with Florida in 2000, twenty-nine states have established “Choose Life” license plates raising over $12 million for adoption assistance. Pro-Life Wisconsin would like to see Wisconsin be the 30th state  to produce and sell a “Choose Life” license plate. To that end, Representative Andre Jacque (R-De Pere) and Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) have introduced companion legislation (Assembly 206 / Senate Bill 176) to establish a “Choose Life” Wisconsin specialty license plate. The bills have been referred to the transportation committees in their respective houses.

Wisconsin Family Action and Pro-Life Wisconsin have set up the bylaws of Choose Life Wisconsin, Inc. a non-profit organization which will disburse the proceeds from the sale of the plates to pregnancy care centers for adoption assistance. In addition to the regular vehicle registration fee, those who purchase the plate are required to pay a $15 fee for issuance or reissuance of the special plates and a $25 annual fee that provides funds to Choose Life Wisconsin. Initial funds will cover Department of Transportation costs of plate production, and thereafter all funds will be distributed to pregnancy care centers throughout the state.

We thank Representative Jacque and Senator Mary Lazich for introducing this long anticipated legislation establishing a “Choose Life” Wisconsin license plate to facilitate and encourage adoption as a positive, life-affirming choice for women with unplanned pregnancies.
