House approves Rep Bizons disabled veteran bill

first_img Categories: Bizon News The Michigan House of Representatives today unanimously approved legislation authored by state Rep. John Bizon.Bizon’s measure allows honorably discharged veterans to have a state park passport fee waived if proof of their 100-percent disabled status is provided to the Secretary of State.“This legislation creates another way for disabled veterans to have their state park passport fee waived,” said Bizon, of Battle Creek. “Veterans who would rather not advertise their disability status with a license plate can provide the Secretary of State documentation of their disabled status provided by the federal government to get the state park passport sticker.”Current law allows 100-percent disabled veterans to access state parks for free with a disabled veteran (DV) license plate. However, many may not be comfortable having a DV license plate.“Given all their sacrifices to our country, this is the least we can do for our 100-percent disabled military heroes,” Bizon said.House Bill 4380 now moves to the Senate for consideration. 12Dec House approves Rep.
