Illinois Choose Life License Plate Bill (HB 423)
This law was last updated on Nov 13, 2018
HB 423 would provide for the issuance of Choose Life license plates. The bill states that in addition to normal registration fees, an applicant for the special plate would be charged a fee of $25 at the initial issuance and $25 at renewal. $15 of the initial issuance fee and $2 of the renewal fee would be deposited into the Secretary of State Special License Plate Fund. $10 of the initial issuance fee and $23 of the renewal fee would be deposited in the Choose Life Fund, a special fund in the State Treasury.
All money in the Choose Life Fund would be distributed to all applying non-governmental, not-for-profit agencies whose services include counseling and meeting the material needs of pregnant women who are planning to place their children for adoption. The bill states that applying organizations may not be involved in or associated with any abortion-related activities or counseling.
Similar to HB 1244 which failed to pass in 2013.
