Scanlon Introduces New Legislation

January 3, 2017

Rep. Scanlon has introduced legislation to waive the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles fee required for any veteran awarded the Purple Heart to receive a Military Order of the Purple Heart license plate. 

"Anyone awarded the Purple Heart has literally shed blood in service to our country and even if it's a nominal fee, it doesn't seem right to charge someone who has already given so much to our nation" said Scanlon who introduced the bill after learning of the fee from a Guilford Vietnam veteran who had trouble renewing his license plate.
