MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A bill to create a Wisconsin license plate displaying the words "Choose Life" has been approved by the Senate transportation committee in a party-line vote.

There was no discussion on the bill that passed 3-2 Thursday.

The bill would allow the state to sell the specialty plates for an annual $75 registration fee and a $15 special plate fee. Another $25 annual fee would be donated to Choose Life Wisconsin Inc., a group set up by anti-abortion groups.

The Assembly passed the bill along party lines in November, but it's unclear whether the bill will reach the Senate floor this session.

A spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald didn't immediately return requests for comment on the bill's prospects.
