      MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A bill to create a Wisconsin license plate displaying the words "Choose Life" has been approved by the Senate transportation committee in a party-line vote.There was no discussion on the bill that passed 3-2 Thursday.The bill would allow the state to sell the specialty plates for an annual $75 registration fee and a $15 special plate fee. Another $25 annual fee would be donated to Choose Life Wisconsin Inc., a group set up by anti-abortion groups.The Assembly passed the bill along party lines in November, but it's unclear whether the bill will reach the Senate floor this session.A spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald didn't immediately return requests for comment on the bill's prospects.
