Veterans MC license plate

Post by mogu83 on Mon Feb 27, 2017 9:35 am

Last February a bill was introduced authorizing a motorcycle license plate with the word Veteran on it  in New Jersey.  The bill was immediately sent to the Transportation and Independent Authorities Committee and is still sitting there.  If you can find the time please contact your State Senator and Assemblymen to move this bill out of Committee. A year is long enough to make a decision. We have plates for just about every group and cause you can think of, why can't a veteran show he/she served on his license plate.  It's a very short bill that will cost the state nothing.
Assembly Bill ----- A2729
Senate Bill ------- S1750

This Assembly bill has finally made it out of Committee (with  amendments ), as obviously required by the legislators the amendments are three times longer than the original bill.  Looks like they added a $50 application fee for veterans that want to show they served.   How sad that we have plates for every group and cause under the sun but this has been spinning around in our legislature, in various forms, for the last few years. Our State plates have been printed instead of stamped for a few years now, so making the change would just be a matter of adding a few lines of code to a program.

This is how Colorado handles Veterans MC license plates.

S1750 has pass both houses and is now law.  It will be a supplement the Title 39 Chapter 3.

BUT:
The original bill called for a $15 fee - as passed, the plate for people that have served their Country will have a $50 application fee and an additional $10 tagged onto the yearly registration fee.  Also although effective immediately the law won't go into effect for a little over a year, and that is iffy.
Our plates are photo printed and haven't been 'stamped' for a few years.  The only cost involved in implementing this law is for a software change in the program printing the plate, replacing 'Garden State' with "U.S Military Veteran."

This bill as passed is a slap in the face for all New Jersey residents that have served this Country and shows what the present group of legislators think of us.

Leave it to NJ to take something that should have been a tribute to those who served our country and turn it into a tax. Just shameful.

Well, FWIW, the state is stupid about all of their various alternate plates. They all carry not only the initial fee but higher renewal fees. I believe in PA the special plates only carried the initial fee which was, in some cases, a donation to the respective cause, but renewal fees were the same.
