OLR Bill Analysis
AN ACT ELIMINATING THE FEE FOR ISSUANCE OF PURPLE HEART NUMBER PLATES.
This bill requires the motor vehicles commissioner to issue Purple Heart license plates without charging the additional fee, which, by law, he charges to cover the cost of making certain special veterans' plates. By law, unchanged by the bill, the commissioner must still charge the registration fee for the plates.
EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2017

Veterans and armed forces members, or their surviving spouses, may request a special registration certificate and set of number plates for any motor vehicle owned or leased by them for at least one year.
