license plate

Legislation being reviewed Wednesday would allow Bruins fans to show their support on a license plate. The bill creates a special Boston Bruins license plate, similar to the plates for the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots.

The plate would cost an extra $40 and half of that would go to Rhode Island charities.  Sen. Maryellen Goodwin sponsored the bill.

Another piece of license plate legislation being reviewed Wednesday creates a plate for Eagle Scouts.

A new license plate being considered by the General Assembly could be used to fund counseling services to discourage women from having an abortion.

The plate with the message “Choose Life” is being debated in the final two days of the legislative session this week.

Supporters say the same kind of license plate is available in Massachusetts and Connecticut. They say private groups have a legal right to raise money through license plates.
