LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A push to create “Choose Life” specialty license plates is dead in the Nebraska Legislature.

Senators abandoned the bill Monday at the sponsor’s request.

Sen. Tommy Garrett of Bellevue says the measure faced sharp opposition from lawmakers who support abortion rights, and he is choosing to focus on other bills in the legislative session’s final days, such as his priority measure to legalize medical marijuana.

The bill would have authorized the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles to create “Choose Life” plates that cost $5 more than standard plates. The additional revenue would go toward funding prenatal care facilities.

The bill is LB 768.
