Governor Signs Bill To Streamline Veterans ID
At Big Frog 104, we always like to share news that deals with veterans issues, and now a new bill signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo will streamline the ID process for vets.
Here are the details from our sister station, WIBX:
“Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed a bill which would allow the Department of Motor Vehicles to indicate whether the holder of a drivers license or a non-driver ID is a veteran.
The law will make it easier for them to show and verify to a business their status as veterans without having to carry multiple forms of identification.
Many businesses provide discounts to veterans. Applicants would have to provide proof they were honorably discharged from the armed forces in order to qualify.
The law will take effect in one year.”
