Boscola’s Vets Driver License Bill Wins Committee Nod
On May 5, 2011 ·
HARRISBURG, May 5, 2011 – The state Senate Transportation Committee has unanimously approved a bill sponsored by Senator Lisa Boscola that would require PennDOT to denote if a person is a military veteran on their driver’s license.
“By denoting veteran’s status on one’s driver’s license, my legislation should make it easier for veterans to qualify for many of the benefits, services and programs tailored to their needs,” Boscola (D-Northampton/Lehigh/Monroe) said. “I am pleased with today’s bipartisan committee vote and will continue to do all I can to honor the sacrifice made my America’s military men and women.”
Under Senate Bill 165, those who qualify for the veterans’ identification include those who were honorably discharged from the U.S. armed forces, including the reserve components and the National Guard.
“Denoting veteran’s status on the driver’s license is a handy and efficient way to help veterans easily prove their status,” Boscola said. “Once implemented, I would hope that businesses and agencies that provide benefits or services to veterans would readily accept this identification as proof.”
The bill now goes to the full Senate for consideration.
