A day before the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, House and Senate lawmakers gave their final approval to a bill creating a "Boston Strong" license plate to memorialize the 2013 marathon, with proceeds going to the One Fund to aid victims and their families.

Both branches voted to send the bill to Gov. Deval Patrick’s desk on Monday.

The plates would cost $50, under the bill, and carry the slogan "Boston Strong."


All proceeds after the deduction of costs associated with issuing the plates would go to the One Fund, which was created after the bombing to aid victims. The bill also says the plates should also have a "design indicating support for the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013."
