Governor Tate Reeves has signed a bill into law aiming to help disabled veterans save money on license plates and car tags.
Senate Bill 2187, authored by Senator Joseph Seymour, R-Vancleave, revises disability rating requirements for certain motor vehicle and motorcycle license plates and tags authorized for disabled veterans.
The bill expands the number of disabled veterans who are eligible to purchase two motor vehicle license plates or tags for just $1 each.
“Any time the state of Mississippi can help our disabled veterans save money – that’s a worthy cause,” Governor Tate Reeves said. “Our disabled veterans sacrificed their own health to keep us safe. The least we can do is lower fees the government charges them. I was really excited to sign this bill because it means more money in the pockets of our disabled veterans. I’ll continue to do everything I can to support our service members.”
Under the revised standard, any legal resident of Mississippi who is rated as having a 100 percent permanent service-connected disability or at least 70 percent nonpermanent service-connected disability by the Veterans’ Administration or U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is eligible.
