Choose Life DebateFeb 18, 2009
We know you've enjoyed the play by play of what's happened to Senator Ken Cuccinelli's (R-37, Fairfax) legislation to provide an opportunity for Virginians to show their support for life by purchasing "Choose Life" license plates. Monies earned from these plates would help fund qualifying pregnancy resource centers throughout the Commonwealth. This legislation is still steaming ahead, and so far has continued to eek by every obstacle. The concept, first introduced as SB 801, originally looked like it had met its fate in the Senate Transportation Committee, but then, through skilled parliamentary know-how on the part of Senator Cuccinelli, it was revived on the Senate floor, by amending it into SB 817 by a vote of 20-19.
