Choose Life WI License Plate Moves to State Senate
State Assembly Passes Specialty License Plate
MADISON, Wis. — “We are extremely pleased that the State Assembly passed the bill authorizing a Choose Life Wisconsin specialty license plate,” said Julaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action.
Representative André Jacque (R-De Pere), spearheaded the effort in the Assembly.
Appling continued, “We owe a huge thank you to Rep. Jacque for his work on this bill. Likewise, we are thankful for those who supported this measure. The liberal representatives in the Assembly went to great lengths in their opposition to this proposal. Their shenanigans on the floor last night showed once again that when they cannot attack an issue on its merit, they will make outrageous, unwarranted personal and organizational attacks.”
Sales from the Choose Life license plates will go to Wisconsin’s Pregnancy Resource Centers to assist in their life-saving, life-affirming work.
“Last session the State Assembly passed a resolution honoring Wisconsin’s Pregnancy Resource Center and proclaiming October 2011 as ‘Pregnancy Care Month.’ Just last night the Assembly passed a resolution recognizing November as Adoption Month. It is altogether fitting that this license plate, the proceeds from which will be used to educate and care for women and their unborn children and to promote adoption be approved in the Assembly right now,” said Appling.
The bill still needs a hearing and a vote in the Senate, where Sen. Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) is the lead author.
