Snyder Signs Bills Adding Veterans Designation to Driver’s Licenses and IDs

Facebook

Governor Snyder signed legislation Tuesday that will allow the Secretary of State to add a veterans designation on Michigan driver’s licenses and state IDs.

Snyder said “we’re proud of our military veterans and of everything they have sacrificed. This new law is one more way of honoring their service and making everyone aware of the many Michiganders who have defended our country in uniform.”

House Bill 4037 adds a veterans designation to Michigan driver’s licenses for veterans who request it and show proof of military service with an honorable discharge. A companion bill, Senate Bill 219, adds the designation to state issued ID cards when requested with the same proof of service and discharge.

Michigan is the home to some 680,000 veterans. It is the 28th state to put a veterans designation on state-issued IDs and driver’s licenses. The designations will be available beginning in May 2014.
