GREG BROWER NEWS RELEASE
Today, Senator Greg Brower (R-Reno), along with chief co-sponsor Assemblyman Randy Kirner (R-Reno), introduced legislation to allow Nevada veterans to have their veteran status displayed on their drivers’ license. SB244 would give Nevadans who are veterans of the armed services the option to have the word “veteran” displayed on their Nevada drivers’ license.
“This is an important issue to veterans in our state,” said Brower. “Several other states have passed similar legislation, and the idea has proven to be very popular. If passed, the bill would give Nevada’s veterans a simple way to prove their veteran status for the propose of obtaining veteran’s benefits.”
“As a veteran, I know this bill will be of great value to our former servicemen and women. Our veterans have served honorably and have earned the right to more easily access opportunities afforded to them. This bill will make that simpler,” said Kirner.
Each of the Legislature’s 12 members who are veterans signed on as co-sponsors of the bill, which was referred to the Senate Committee on Transportation.
