Special license plates; U.S. Marine Corps, Army, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Allows disabled veterans who have been honorably discharged to receive United States Army, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard license plates. The bill also authorizes the issuance of United States Navy and United States Air Force plates, which did not meet the minimum prepaid applications when authorized in 2013, and allows disabled veterans who have been honorably discharged to receive those plates as well. The bill also makes a technical change by moving the Coast Guard plate from an Act of Assembly to the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
