Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
House Bill 168, which would permit the citizens of North Carolina to purchase a Choose Life license
plate to support pregnancy crisis centers throughout the state, has been sent to the House
Rules Committee by the Speaker of the House, Joe Hackney of Orange County. The Rules Committee
is often the place where bills are sent to die.
We urge you to contact Speaker Hackney, President Pro-Tem of the State Senate, Senator Marc
Basnight and your local Representative to ask that HB 168 be permitted a vote in the Rules Committee
in order for it to proceed to the next step in the legislative process.
You can contact each of these legislators by clicking on the link below.
Without our continual pressure, it is unlikely this bill will become law. Thank you for supporting
the passage of a law that will assist expectant mothers and their unborn children without any cost
The Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge
Bishop of Raleigh
