It’s a cost neutral idea that could help child abuse victims in Oregon. Central Oregon lawmakers, Senator Chris Telfer, Jason Conger and Gene Whisnant are all pushing a bill that would pave the way for a customized license plate. Money raised would be routed to places like the Kids Center in Bend: “The concept is to, like so many, the Cultural Trust has the Crater Lake license plate, there are various license plates where you pay an extra $5 or whatever and that money goes into a specific pot of money to help fund certain programs." Representative Whisnant has been pushing for this for several years, and one lawmaker was blocking it; that person is no longer in Salem. Telfer believes there's a good chance this bill will go through, that there seems to be a lot of support for it.
