DETROIT (AP) — Michigan's secretary of state is launching a new license plate designed to encourage people to donate organs and tissues.

Ruth Johnson announced the Donate Life license plates Wednesday at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The cost of the plates includes a $25 donation to promote organ donation.

Life of Michigan President Richard Pietroski says Michigan alone has more than 3,000 waiting for organ transplants. About 3 million people now are on the state's organ donation registry.
