2016-2017 Regular Session
Under current law, the New Jersey Transit Corporation provides reduced fares for senior citizens over the age of 62 and persons with disabilities. A disabled veteran is only eligible for the program if the United States Department of Veterans Affairs has determined that the veteran has a disability rating of 70 percent or greater. This bill provides that all disabled veterans are eligible for the reduced fare program. For the purposes of the bill, a disabled veteran is any veteran who is eligible to be compensated for a service-connected disability from war service by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs or who receives or is entitled to receive equivalent compensation for a service-connected disability which arises out of military or naval service and who has submitted sufficient evidence of the record of disability incurred in the line of duty to the Adjutant General of the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans' Affairs.
