COLUMBUS - 

Today, the Ohio House of Representatives passed legislation that permits motorcyclists to apply for a “Breast Cancer Awareness” license plate.


Under House Bill 93, sponsored by Reps. Nan Baker (R-Westlake) and Al Landis (R-Dover), owners or lessees of motorcycles can apply to the Registrar of Motor Vehicles for use of the license plate, which is not specifically mentioned in state law.


“It is an honor to sponsor House Bill 93 that would include motorcycles to participate in purchasing Pink Ribbon plates to support the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio,” Baker said. “Thousands of Ohioans in need of breast cancer treatment will benefit from this increased revenue.”


“The motorcycling community is a very charitable community, and House Bill 93 provides an additional opportunity for motorcyclists to show their support of a worthy cause,” Landis said. “Riders can display the plate to honor a loved one, or as a reminder to prioritize annual check-ups.”


Each purchase of a pink ribbon license plate generates $25 for the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio, a non-profit organization that helps breast cancer patients find access to affordable, quality treatment. Since its inception in 2005, the plates have generated nearly $650,000 for community organizations that provide services to both women and men. One-hundred percent of the funds raised by the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio stays in Ohio. HB 93 simply allows motorcyclists to purchase this particular specialty license plate that passenger vehicle owners can already purchase through the Ohio BMV at www.OPlates.com or through your local Deputy Registrar office.


The bill received unanimous support and now heads to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
