Schuitmaker disappointed by veto of ‘Choose Life’ license plate bill

LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker, R-Lawton, issued the following statement Friday regarding Gov. Rick Snyder’s veto of Senate Bill 163, which would have created a “Choose Life” fundraising license plate in the state of Michigan.

“Like so many Michigan residents who support life, I am disappointed by today’s veto of legislation that would have created a “Choose Life” license plate.

“This voluntary license plate would have raised funds to provide resources and services for women facing an unexpected pregnancy. Regardless, I will continue to advocate both in the Legislature and in my community for policies and solutions that support life.”
