House passes Rep. Gildon bill to reduce cost of license plates for veterans

The Washington State House of Representatives unanimously approved Rep. Chris Gildon's House Bill 1707 today, which would make license plates affordable to more veterans.

Under current law, veterans with a 100 percent disability rating may receive license plates at zero cost. Should Gildon's bill be enacted into law, that threshold will be lowered to a 70 percent disability rating.

β€œAt a 70 percent disability rating, these veterans have already given so much. The least we can do is give a little back,” said Gildon, R-Puyallup.

Gildon is a 23-year veteran Army Officer, having served in five overseas deployments.

House Bill 1707 now moves to the Senate for further consideration.
