Bill waives vehicle fees for disabled vets

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Senator Tom Ada described his Bill 298 by saying such is not a sympathy bill, but rather legislation to recognize the sacrifices and service that veterans have done for our island and country. His concept would waive vehicle registration fees for veterans rated at a 100% permanent and total disability.

Veterans who testified this morning said the measure is a long time coming.  "I am one of those veterans that are disabled," said one such former serviceman. "I'm going to cut it short - this bill has been on for a long time since Rory Respicio started out with Tina Barnes' Bill 383 introduced in October 2004 and didn't go nowhere.  The bill at that time stated all veterans but the budget for the Government of Guam at that time had a strain and that didn't go through."
