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.

Cullerton Capitol at your CornerVILLA PARK – State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) hosted three “Capitol at Your Corner” events this week where residents were free to ask him questions and raise concerns about local and state-wide issues.

“Face-to-face contact is still my favorite way to ensure that I continue my focus down in Springfield. I have an extremely large area to cover and many different concerns throughout the 23rd District. Having such a good turnout and so many people come by and chat is extremely helpful as we go into the final month of our legislative session,” Cullerton said.
