House-approved bill to create disabled veterans license plate to head to Ohio Senate

COLUMBUS — A bill that would create a license plate for disabled veterans will be sent to the Ohio Senate for consideration.

Ohio’s House of Representatives passed the bill unanimously this past week.

Bill sponsor Rep. Wes Retherford says the license plate will make people aware of the Disabled American Veterans organization and encourage individuals to volunteer. The national group is made up of armed forces veterans who served during times of war and were injured during their service, resulting in a current disability.

The Hamilton Republican says the bill would allow the purchase of special DAV license plates at an extra cost, with proceeds going to the DAV.

The DAV was created in 1920 by Ohio native, Capt. Robert Marx. Retired Col. Joseph Johnston of Williamsburg currently heads the DAV.
