Senate Approves Reschenthaler Bill To Provide Special License Plate for Military Members

The State Senate this week gave final approval to legislation sponsored by Senator Guy Reschenthaler (R-37) that recognizes and honors Pennsylvania’s military personnel and sent the measure to the Governor for enactment into law.

Senate Bill 1155 establishes a special vehicle license plate for members of the United States Armed Forces adding special recognition for current members of the military, reserves, and Pennsylvania National Guard.

Reschenthaler said the designation would be in addition to the currently available license plates with special recognition for World War II veterans, Purple Heart recipients and Operation Iraqi Freedom veterans.

“I’m pleased the Legislature moved quickly to approve this special license plate for our dedicated members of the military, who sacrifice so much for this country,” Reschenthaler said “As a former officer in the U.S. Navy I understand the importance of recognizing active duty military service to inspire future generations to answer our nation’s call to the armed forces.”
