PLACARD INFORMATION

House Bill 4574 as enacted

Public Act 179 of 2018

Sponsor:  Rep. Daire Rendon

House Committee:  Transportation and Infrastructure

Senate Committee:  Transportation

SUMMARY:

Currently under the Michigan Vehicle Code, a windshield placard issued to a disabled person must bear the first letter and the last 3 digits of his or her driver's or chauffeur's license number or the first letter and last 4 digits of the number of his or her official state personal identification card.

House Bill 4574 amends the Code to revise the windshield placard identification requirements for a disabled person with a state personal identification card to mirror those for a placard for someone with a driver's or chauffeur's license, to include the first letter and last 3 digits of the number (instead of the last 4 digits).

The bill also prohibits the Secretary of State from issuing a permanent placard to an individual unless that individual has provided proof of Michigan residency.

The bill takes effect 90 days after being enacted into law.
