Under current Alabama law, disabled veterans have to pay an issuance fee of less than $10 (varies by county) when they renew their license plates. However, Rep. Rhett Marques (R-Enterprise) has authored a bill, HB80, that would exempt them from paying this fee.
“[D]isabled vets already don’t have to pay a lot of other fees, this just eliminates the issuance fee,” Marques said.
The bill passed through the House Ways and Means General Fund committee on Tuesday with no opposition.
