Legislation introduced by Senator Christopher Connors, Assemblyman Brian Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne Gove that would exempt disabled veterans from beach buggy permit fees was advanced by the Assembly Appropriations Committee.

The legislation, S-1703 and A-715, passed the Senate unanimously in June 2019.

The Delegation issued the following statement:

“The idea for this legislation was brought to our Delegation’s attention by a constituent, Mr. Joseph Dolobacs, to whom we are grateful not only for his service and sacrifice to our country but also for his advocacy on behalf of his fellow veterans.

“Those disabled veterans, for whom this legislation has been introduced, have sacrificed much for the freedoms that we all in this great nation cherish, but who many in this world are unable to experience. Certainly, it is feasible within the State Budget and existing revenue sources to exempt disabled veterans from paying this fee.

“Most directly, paying no permit fee would allow this to become a more affordable activity for these individuals to continue enjoying. More broadly, it would represent a meaningful gesture of respect by the State to appropriately recognize the disabled veterans who would benefit for their service and sacrifice to this great country.”

“The hope is that the Committee’s action leads to our legislation being posted for a full Chamber vote in the Assembly prior to being sent to the Governor’s desk.”

Members of the 9th District Delegation serve, respectively, on the Senate and Assembly Military and Veteran’s Affairs Committee.
