Frazier introduces bill for veterans driver’s license designation

By From page A4 | February 21, 2013

FAIRFIELD — Assemblyman Jim Frazier, D-Oakley, introduced Assembly Bill 531 Wednesday, which is passed would allow California military veterans to apply for a driver’s license that identifies them as a veteran.

The objective of the bill is to allow veterans to quickly and easily identify themselves and access their services and benefits using a driver’s license, without having to carry around official discharge papers.

“We have 1.8 million veterans in California, and I feel honored and privileged to author this bill to recognize their service and to provide an easier form of identification for them to access benefits.” Frazier said in a press release.

    Jim, the finances of the state need to be brought under control. Vets can already get a Vets ID from the county and making a copy of a DD214 is so easy to do.

    Veterans risked their lives to protect America. We need to make things easier for them. This is another good idea for our great vets.

    Steve Kays---I'm a vet and you're not. I say no to this wasteful spending. You say yes. Seems that you and your Democratic pals "love" of veterans is really hatred of the taxpayers and citizens!
