Lawmakers May Tighten Veteran License Plate Rules
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — An interim legislative committee is considering new eligibility requirements for those who purchase specialty license plates honoring fallen soldiers.
The law currently allows the plates for parents, grandparents, spouses, siblings and children. It also allows, for example, Gold Star plates for the family of a World War II veteran who was ill during his military service and died in the 1990s.
The Wyoming Veterans Commission is recommending that family members be eligible only if the service member died while in service.
The Associated Press reports that the Legislature’s Committee on Transportation, Highways and Military Affairs agreed this week to consider a draft bill changing the law. The full Legislature would have to approve any change.
