Lawmakers on Tuesday approved a new Boston Bruins license plate that would benefit state coffers and local charities.

The plates would cost an extra $40. Half the money would go to the state, while the other half would go to the Boston Bruins Foundation. The foundation must use the money to benefit Rhode Island-based charities that promote athletic activities, academics, and health.

The state Senate on Tuesday approved a bill regarding the license plate plan. The House of Representatives would have to approve it, too.

"Rhode Islanders are passionate about rooting for their teams, and they’re nearly as passionate about their license plates," said State Sen. Maryellen Goodwin, D-Providence, in a statement. "Rhode Island drivers love to have plates that tell people who they are, and many fans be excited to have the opportunity to show their pride in the Bruins. At the same time, fans who order these plates will support organizations that do great work in their communities.”

Rhode Island already offers similar plates benefiting the charitable organizations of the New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox.

Why Boston? Why not PROVIDENCE Bruins? That's where all the best Bruins players start out! I'd get a PBruins tag in a heartbeat, Boston? Not really interested.

Why give this God forsaken state another penny. Vanity plates are a huge money maker for the state. Hang that baby on your ride and watch it rattle away due to our excellent roads. Buy a plate from the sport shop of your favorite team etc. It will be a one time payment and far less then the repetitive registration fee.

... the usual dribble from the self-proclaimed "TOLERANT" ... I bet I have more gay and racially mixed relatives in my family than you'd ever allow in yours! That being said, please take your infantile bashing and bullying to another blog! It's not wanted here.... I have a feeling that, as much as you like to believe it, it's not the rainbow plate on your car that causes the insults but the person driving it.
