LANSING — State Sen. Dayna Polehanki (D-Livonia) today introduced a bill to honor women veterans.
The legislation, part of a bipartisan eight-bill package, would create a new license plate recognizing the sacrifices of women who served in the military and their families.
“I am proud to sponsor a bill that would make it easier for women to proudly display their service and for others to pay tribute to the important military contributions of women today and throughout our history,” Sen. Polehanki said.
Other bills in the package would eliminate the $5 fee for various types of veteran license plates, including plates recognizing veterans of the Korean War, Vietnam War and World War II, as well as Gold Star families, National Guard and Reserve members.
“It’s difficult to ever repay the enormous debt we owe our military service members and their families, but this is one way we can show our appreciation and honor all that they have sacrificed for our country and way of life,” Sen. Polehanki said.
