Connecticut Support Our Troops® License Plate Bill Signed by Governor!
Senate Bill 298, Public Act 08-150 was recently signed into law by Governor M. Jodi Rell and becomes effective on October 1, 2008. Section 24 of the new law requires the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles to commence issuing the new Support Our Troops! license plates on or after January 1, 2009.
The bill, which passed the Senate and House unanimously in May, establishes a fee of sixty dollars ($60) for the new plate. Forty-five dollars ($45) of the fee will be deposited in the Support Our Troops Commemorative Account to be distributed quarterly to Connecticut Support Our Troops, Inc. (CTSOT).
CTSOT extends a sincere thank you to Rep. Larry Cafero (R-Norwalk), House Republican Leader, for getting the bill off the ground, along with Senator Don DeFronzo (D-New Britain)and Rep. Tony Guerrera (D-Rocky Hill), Co-Chairmen of the Transportation Committee; Rep. David Scribner (R-Brookfield) Ranking Member of the Transportation Committee; Rep. Chris Donovan (D-Meriden) House Majority Leader; and Jared Schmitt, House Republican Staff, for their help in shepherding the bill through the process.
The Support Our Troops! license plate is part of a major Department of Motor Vehicles’ bill that had to wind its way through the legislative process. Connecticut Support Our Troops, Inc. would also like to thank the Department of Motor Vehicle for their cooperation in our efforts. CTSOT hopes to have a formal announcement later in the year when the first plate rolls off the press and applications for the plate become available to the general public.
Connecticut Support Our Troops, Inc. is part of the nation-wide private charity group, Support Our Troops®, which is working to enhance the morale and welfare of our deployed neighbors and their families. The group has brought about the issuance of Support Our Troops! specialty license plates in 26 states thus far. The Connecticut plate, like the others, will enable people to publicly show their support and patriotism for their troops and families and to aggregate funds to support programs to assist the troops, their families, and veterans. Millions of dollars in goods has already been sent to our deployed neighbors all over the world and here at home on numerous occasions. For more information visit www.SupportOurTroops.org
