The legislation was introduced by Senator Christopher Connors, Assemblyman Brian Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne Gove at the request of a constituent, who is a disabled veteran.

The 9th District Delegation issued the following statement regarding the Senate’s passage of their veterans-related initiative, S-1703:

“Exempting disabled veterans from paying for beach buggy permits is a small, yet meaningful gesture of appreciation to these brave individuals in recognition of their service and sacrifice for our nation.

“Certainly, we’re pleased that our veterans’ proposal passed the Senate with unanimous and bipartisan support. On behalf of the disabled veterans that would benefit from this effort, we hope that the Assembly follows the Senate’s lead by passing this legislation as soon as possible.”

S-1703 would prohibit both the state and municipalities from imposing beach buggy permit fees on disabled veterans.

According to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, there are approximately 57,000 veterans residing in New Jersey who received disability compensation due to a service-connected condition.

The identical companion measure, A-715, is awaiting action by the Assembly Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee. Members of the 9th District Delegation serve on the Senate and Assembly Military and Veterans Affairs Committees to more effectively represent their constituency, which includes a significant number of veterans.
