Rivera Bill to Waive Fees on Armed Forces License Plates for Veterans Passes Committee

Senator George Rivera (R-Pueblo) issued the following statement today on his bill SB 56 unanimously passing out of the Senate Finance Committee with a 5-0 vote: 

“I’m extremely proud this bill passed committee and I’m humbled to have achieved a victory on behalf of our veterans. The men and women of our armed forces are heroes that deserve to be honored both when they are actively serving our country and when they return home from duty. SB 56 ensures we honor our veterans and also take a step towards easing the financial burden on our veterans who want to honor their service with an armed forces license plate.” 

Currently, applicants for the following special license plates pay a one-time fee of $50 in addition to the normal fees for regular license plates: 

· Veteran of the United States Armed Forces
· United States Marine Corps
· Veteran of the Korean War
· Veteran of the Vietnam War
· United States Army
· United States Navy
· Bronze Star
· United States Coast Guard
· United States Air Force
· United States Army Special Forces
· Veteran of the Afghanistan War
· Veteran of the Iraq War
· Veteran of Operation Desert Shield or Desert Storm
· Distinguished Flying Cross
· Navy SEAL

The bill exempts veterans from paying this fee for one set of these special plates.
