The bill allows a permanently and totally disabled veteran to submit a United States Department of Veterans Affairs (USDVA) Form Letter (VAFL) 27-333, or its equivalent, to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles in lieu of a certificate of disability when renewing or replacing a disabled parking permit. Upon request, the USDVA issues a VAFL 27-333 to veterans to certify his or her status as “permanently and totally” disabled due to a service connected disability. The letter must have been issued within the last 12 months and be provided with the application for a renewal or replacement disabled parking permit.

If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2015.
