Those with disabilities would be able to have the accessibility symbol on a regular or specialty license plate, under legislation passed by the Senate April 25. Right now, people with disabilities can only get the accessibility symbol on the Person with Disabilities Plate or the Disabled Veteran Plate.
For example, individuals who wish to have a specialty plate for a university, sports team, or other organization could then also obtain the accessibility symbol on that plate.
Disability plates allow the authorized holder to park in spaces reserved for persons with disabilities at places such as a mall, grocery stores, or retail stores.
Senate Bill 616 now heads to the House of Representatives for consideration.
