The bill creates a remuneration-exempt identifying placard that exempts an individual with a disability from paying for parking if the disability limits the individual's:
- Fine motor control in both hands;
- Ability to reach a height of 48 inches from the ground due to lack of finger, hand, or upper extremity strength or mobility; or
- Ability to reach or access a parking meter due to the use of a wheelchair or other ambulatory device.
The bill repeals existing authority for a person with a disability to park without paying.
The bill appropriates $9,870 to the department of revenue from the general fund for use by the division of motor vehicles to order license plates to implement the act.
