World War II license plate bill heads to the Colorado House

Wednesday, Senator Rollie Heath (D-Boulder), announced the Senate passage of his bill to honor veterans of World War II with a special Colorado license plate. An estimated 45,000 World War II veterans reside in Colorado.

When asked about his reason for carrying the bill, Sen. Heath offered the following comment:

“We owe our veterans so much more than we can ever repay. This bill is just a small way to honor one of the greatest groups of Americans ever to carry our flag and defend our nation. I was shocked and surprised to learn that we had never honored WWII veterans with their own special plate. I’m proud to have this part in honoring the men and women who served and sacrificed in WWII.”

Senate Bill 11-037 creates the World War II specialty license plate, which will be made available to applicants who were members of the US armed services between September 16, 1940 and July 25, 1947. The bill has passed from the Colorado State Senate and now heads to the House of Representatives for consideration.
