This bill permits a military veteran who is designated by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs as a "100 Percent Disabled Veteran" to park a motor vehicle in parking spaces reserved for persons with a disability. Under the bill, military veterans designated as 100 percent disabled are to receive from the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) a person with a disability card, hanging placard, and license plates that display a wheel chair insignia. Current law requires a person with a permanent disability to submit to the MVC an application signed by a medical professional certifying that the person qualifies to receive disability parking privileges. This bill allows a military veteran to submit a statement from the Department of Veterans Affairs certifying that he or she is 100 percent disabled. A military veteran who qualifies as being 100 percent disabled would not be required to submit an application signed by a medical professional. Under federal law, a veteran rendered permanently disabled by a service-connected injury may receive from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs a 100 percent disability rating, which entitles the veteran to certain unemployment, health care, and educational benefits. The sponsor believes that these veterans should be entitled to park their motor vehicles in parking spaces reserved for persons with a disability without being required to submit a separate certification from a medical professional.
