Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: December 5, 2018 09:24 AM
From: Senator Judy Ward and Sen. John P. Sabatina, Jr.
To: All Senate members
Subject: Disabled Veteran Plate
We are reintroducing Senate Bill 55 of last session, legislation amending the Vehicle Code to reduce the percentage of service-connected disability required for a veteran to qualify for a severely disabled veteran license plate. The legislation reduces the requirement from 100% disability to at least 75% disability.

The Department of Transportation issues the special registration plate designating the vehicle as belonging to a severely disabled veteran. As a result of having this disabled veteran plate, the veteran may park in areas reserved for handicapped parking.

The special registration plate may be used only on a passenger car or truck with a gross weight of not more than 9,000 pounds. In the case of a motorcycle, the department issues a decal for display on the registration plate.

During the 2017-18 legislative session, SB 55 was approved by the Senate Transportation Committee.

Please join us in cosponsoring this important legislation.

Introduced as SB62
