Ciresi Bill Exempts Some Veterans from Vehicle Fees
HARRISBURG PA – Injured and decorated U.S. armed services veterans would be exempted from paying vehicle registration fees to Pennsylvania under legislation introduced Tuesday (Sept. 21, 2021) by 146th House District Rep. Joe Ciresi, who represents residents in all or portions of Limerick, Lower Pottsgrove, Perkiomen townships, and Pottstown, Royersford, and Trappe boroughs.
Ciresi said returning veterans should receive assistance from the state as recognition of the sacrifices they’ve made serving the nation.
His bill, H.B. 1895, would totally waive fees for veterans who were injured or captured while serving their country, or who have received the Congressional Medal of Honor, or the Purple Heart. Currently, veterans who are within most of those categories pay a $10 processing fee, which the bill eliminates. The bill remains a proposal only and does not become effective unless passed into law.
