HB 2317

HB 2317: Disability Plates; Permanent Placards

This bill:

Stipulates that a permanent disability removable windshield placard is valid for as long as the person qualifies (instead of for five years)

Permits an authorized physician assistant to certify that a person has a permanent or temporary disability

Directs ADOT to cancel the permanent disability removable windshield placard if the holder is deceased (identified through monthly vital record database inquiries)

First sponsor: Rep. John

ADC Position: Neutral

Persons with permanent disabilities should not have to renew a placard every five years.

However, there could be a potential risk of fraud if people who do not need the placard continue using it after holder passes away or the need expires.
