BOSTON (AP) — State lawmakers are considering whether to allow motorists to buy a “Boston Strong” license plate with proceeds helping victims of the April 15 marathon bombing.

The Legislature’s transportation committee is scheduled to hear the bill Tuesday.

The proposed Massachusetts license plate would include the words “Boston Strong” — a phrase that became popular after the attack that killed three people and injured more than 260 others.

The specialty plate would cost at least $50 with a portion of the proceeds going to One Fund Boston, the charity created to help victims of the bombing and their families. One free plate would be given to an immediate family member of those who died or were most severely injured.

More than 60 legislators have signed on as sponsors of the bill.
