Senate OKs bill to seek donations for pediatric cancer research


The Pennsylvania Senate has passed legislation to help generate donations for pediatric cancer research.

Senate Bill 1091 would allow people to donate $5 to the Pediatric Cancer Research Fund when they electronically renew a driver’s license, photo identification card or vehicle registration.

The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Scott Martin (R-Lancaster), said the funding would be used exclusively for research approved by the Pennsylvania Cancer Control, Prevention and Research Advisory Board.

The bill is awaiting a vote in the House of Representatives.
