TALLAHASSEE, FL — A bill sponsored by Rep. Bobby DuBose, D-Fort Lauderdale, will honor disabled veterans after it was signed into law recently.

Drivers who are disabled veterans will be exempt from parking fees by local governments under provisions of the bill.

“I’m glad the governor signed my bill into law, but I’m happier that veterans who have paid a steep price for their service will realize a small token of our appreciation,” said Rep. DuBose, serving his first term.

“We do a lot in Florida to make sure veterans know they’re appreciated. I’m proud my bill will allow us to add to all those efforts with a benefit I hope will regularly remind those veterans that we appreciate the sacrifices they’ve made.”

The House passed HB 471 by a 113-0 vote. Rep. DuBose’s bill was unanimously approved in the Senate as well.

A disabled veteran license plate (from Florida or other states) or disabled veteran parking permits will identify those eligible for the parking-fee exemption
