“Our disabled veterans should not have to go through unnecessary red tape to secure basic benefits from the Motor Vehicle Commission,” said Oroho (R-24). “Under my legislation, permanently disabled veterans who apply for special benefits through the MVC will only need to submit proof of their disability with their first application—not on renewal applications. This will not only improve efficiency at the MVC, which is certainly needed, but it will allow our veterans to enjoy all of the benefits they so rightly earned in a timely manner.”

Under the bill, S-3294, a military veteran who is 100 percent disabled is required to submit to the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) a statement from the Department of Veterans Affairs certifying that he or she is permanently disabled on the initial application for disability parking privileges, but not on subsequent renewal applications.

“All permanently disabled veterans should be provided easy access to the benefits they’ve earned,” added Oroho. “By removing this excessive paperwork, we can help our heroes, and better serve our communities at the same time.”
