Rep. Hank Vaupel's (R-Fowlerville) plan to remove license plate fees for veterans was approved by the Michigan House of Representatives on Feb. 19. 

The bill would eliminate the fee on a specialty Vietnam War license plate, in addition to removing the $5 service fee on other veteran and military license plates. 

“Imposing a service fee for special military license plates is not the appropriate way to greet service members who have sacrificed so much to protect our great nation and preserve the freedoms we cherish upon returning home,” Vaupel said to Michigan House Republicans. “That’s not fair, and this bipartisan plan aims to address the issue head-on. While a fee waiver for veteran and military license plates is a minimal token of gratitude, it goes a long way in showing our military heroes that their state respects the contributions they have made while serving in the Armed Forces.”

The bill will now be considered as it moves through the Senate.
