Bill that would exempt disabled vets from paying issuance fees on license plates gets out of committee

Alabama State Representative Rhett Marques (R-Enterprise) has authored a bill to relieve disabled veterans from the burden of paying an issuance fee when they get their license tag renewed.

Under current Alabama law, disabled vets have to pay the issuance fee that is attached to the process of renewing a vehicle. The fee varies by county and is usually less than $10.

Marques stated, “[D]isabled vets already don’t have to pay a lot of other fees, this just eliminates the issuance fee.”

The bill passed through the House Ways and Means General Fund committee on Tuesday with no opposition.
