Lawmakers advance proposed license plates to honor troops, help fund veteran employment efforts – Omaha World-Herald

Nebraska drivers could show their support for the troops — and fund employment efforts for veterans — with a new license plate option advanced by lawmakers Monday.

State lawmakers gave first-round approval to Legislative Bill 138, introduced by State Sen. Carol Blood of Bellevue, which makes a number of changes in military-related license plates. 

The measure provides for new Support Our Troops plates and directs proceeds to a new fund aimed at recruiting and keeping military veterans in the state. Personalized message plates would cost $70, of which $52.50 would go to the new fund. Plates with standard number-letter combinations would cost $5, which would all go to the fund.  

Blood said the proposed plates represent a creative way to pay for veterans employment services, given the state’s tight budget situation. She said efforts to recruit and keep veterans in Nebraska would benefit both the veterans and employers in desperate need of workers.

As advanced, LB 138 also would add to the license plate options for active-duty military and veterans and make some military-related plates free.

The new options would include separate designs for Army and Air National Guard, plus designs honoring people who have been awarded medals for serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, Southwest Asia, the Global War on Terror and Vietnam.

License plate fees would be eliminated, starting in 2021, for drivers who qualify for Pearl Harbor Survivor, Ex-POW, Purple Heart, Disabled American Veteran and Gold Star Family plates.
