State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park)

 

 

 

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois Veterans with permanent disabilities will have an easier time renewing their parking placards under a plan approved by the Senate on Wednesday.

State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) introduced the plan removing the requirement that Veteran's with permanent disabilities show evidence of their disability when reapplying for handicapped parking.

“If veterans have suffered a serious, permanent disability – if they were partially paralyzed or lost a limb serving this country – it is ridiculous to ask them to prove that disability every four years,” Cullerton said.

The plan, Senate Bill 3255, passed the Senate by a 53-0 vote. It now moves to the House.
