House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: May 6, 2021 02:01 PM
From: Representative Timothy J. O'Neal
To: All House members
Subject: Blue Star Family License Plate
Military families give their lives for our country and this Commonwealth.
When they join the military community, some families choose to display a Blue Stars service banner of flag in a window of their home to signify a loved one is an active duty service member. This special flag, displayed only by military families, is where the phrase “Blue Star Family” comes from and refers to the immediate family members of an active duty service member.
It is my intention to introduce legislation to honor those who actively serve their country and their families by making the Blue Star Family plate available to families of active duty service members. The plate will display a Blue Star which will signify a family loved one is an active duty service member. Applicants must provide proper documentation and a fee of $20 to the Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
Please join me in honoring these individuals for their service and sacrifices by co-sponsoring this important legislation.

Introduced as HB1486
