The state House last week voted unanimously to pass House Bill 845, which creates a special license plate designed to raise awareness about the problem of bullying in schools. The bill was authored by state Rep. Karen Boback, R-Harveys Lake.


“When folks from across the nation see Pennsylvania cars with this plate, it will send a message that the people of our state do not tolerate bullying,” Boback said. “As a former educator, I believe we should do everything we can to raise awareness of this terrible trend.”


If the bill is signed into law, the license plate could be ordered for $35. Of that, $15 would go to a bullying awareness and prevention fund administered by the state Department of Education. The other $20 would go to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to cover the costs of producing and issuing the special plates.
