Agencies that help fight child abuse in Oregon will have another revenue source soon. State lawmakers approved a new "Keep Kids Safe" license plate that will give these agencies a consistent source of revenue. Elaine Knobbs with the Kid’s Center is thrilled the bill succeeded this session. “Especially during economic hardships, the risk of child abuse goes up, so anything the community can do to help protect kids is very much needed.” Representative Gene Whisnant was behind the "Keep Kids Safe" bill. A percentage of the funds raised through the group license plates will go to non -profits fighting child abuse in Oregon. The plates are expected to raise at least $100,000 per biennium.
