It’s LAW! The PA Breast Cancer Coalition’s legislation, Senate Bill 445, introduced by PA Sen. Bob Mensch, passed both the PA Senate and PA House unanimously! Governor Tom Wolf signed the legislation into law on Friday, June 25, 2021. Senate Bill 445, Now Act 23 of 2021, will enable Pennsylvanians to donate $5 to breast cancer research when renewing their driver’s license or vehicle registration online. Proceeds will go toward the PBCC’s  Research Grants Initiative.
