Bill Caption

Relating to specialty license plates and parking placards for vehicles of certain disabled veterans. 

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 792 would allow qualified disabled veterans to elect to receive license plates that include the symbol adopted by Rehabilitation International in 1969, also known as the International Symbol of Access. This initial application must include a written statement from a physician and any other information required by this application. Organizations that regularly transport veterans who are eligible for this license plate would also be eligible to receive the specialty license plate as well. 

The bill would establish that only vehicles displaying a license plate or placard with the International Symbol of Access may park in a handicapped parking space. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

While this bill would reduce the number of people allowed to park in a handicapped space by prohibiting a person who has a disabled veteran plate but not the International Symbol of Access from using such a space, SB 792 does not weigh on our liberty principles and we remain neutral.
