Chairman Danny Staples says his decision came after a license plate bill he introduced became entangled in an abortion debate centered on a "Respect Life" license plate.

Staples says he will not allow members of the Senate to make license plates billboards for their political and religious beliefs.

Staples killed his license plate bill specifically to prevent the creation of the "Respect Life" plate.
