SB-371

AN ACT CONCERNING THE INDICATION OF A PERSON'S STATUS AS A VETERAN ON A MOTOR VEHICLE OPERATOR'S LICENSE AND IDENTITY CARD.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 7958

File Copy No.: 366

Senate Calendar No.: 236

OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: See Below

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The amendment extends free lifetime passes for free parking, admission and boat access parking for use at any state park, forest or state recreational facility to a disabled veteran as defined by the state.

There are about 8, 000 season passes purchased annually. It is unknown how many of these are purchased by disabled veterans. To the extent that any of these are purchased by this group of individuals currently, these individuals would no longer have to purchase these passes in the future and the state would experience a revenue loss of $67 per pass.

Disabled veterans who currently do not purchase season passes but would seek passes under the amendment would not result in a fiscal impact.
