I am proud to announce that A.1112-A/S.2139-B, legislation I authored, was passed by the New York State Assembly this week. The bill would authorize the issuance of distinctive license plates to veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars or their spouses, bearing the words “Veteran of the Iraq War” or “Veteran of the Afghanistan War.”
The veterans of these two wars deserve the same type of recognition as those who fought in World War II, Korea or Vietnam. They have taken the same risks and made the same great sacrifices to help keep us safe and provide us with the freedoms we enjoy. We should be proud of them and seek to acknowledge them in any way we can.
Sue Serino (R-41) sponsored the bill in the Senate.
