A Concord assemblywoman introduced a bill last week that would reestablish a special license plate for veterans.
Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla said she introduced AB 244 to allow veterans to purchase a special California license plate identifying them as veterans in response to demand from veterans organizations.
"Not only will it create this distinctive plate to properly recognize their service and sacrifice, but it will increase funding to county Veteran Service Offices to ensure that veterans have access to their guaranteed benefits including employment, retirement, medical and housing assistance," Bonilla said Friday in a statement.
A veterans license plate was discontinued in 2010 and replaced with an "Honoring Veterans" plate that can be bought by any Californian. The "Honoring Veterans" plate will still be available if AB 244 passes.
