|Subject:||Special License Plate: Choose Fresh and Local|
|In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that would amend Title 75 (Vehicles), to provide for a special license plate to support Pennsylvania’s local farmers markets.
Local farmers markets play a critical role in our local communities, as they are supporting our local food economies by supporting local farmers. They often time provide access to fresh fruits and vegetables in many urban areas which are food deserts. Farmers markets are also great builders of a sense of community by providing a venue where residents congregate and get to know one another. My legislation would create a special license plate, which will display the words "Choose Fresh & Local." One hundred percent of the fee paid would support the operation and promotion of local farmers markets in Pennsylvania. This plate would be $50, in addition to the annual registration fee.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.
