Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that beginning in registration year 2016, the application for renewal, and subsequent fees, of a vehicle registration for a member of the Armed Forces of the United States returning from a combat mission shall not be required for that service member's next scheduled renewal. Provides that beginning in registration year 2016, the standard registration fee shall be waived for the year following the return of any Illinois vehicle owner who is an active duty member of the Armed Forces of the United States who can provide proof of serving in a combat mission. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that beginning in registration year 2017 (rather than 2016), the application for registration renewal and standard registration fees for a military combat mission veteran shall be waived for the year following that combat mission veteran's return from active duty. Provides that proof of combat mission service shall come from the service member's hostile fire pay or imminent danger pay documentation (rather than discharge documentation) received any time in the 12 months preceding the registration renewal. Provides that the application for registration renewal and standard registration fees exemption shall apply to a member of the active-duty or reserve component of the United States Armed Forces returning from a combat mission.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 2
Provides that nothing concerning the waiver of the application for registration renewal and standard registration fees for a military combat mission veteran is applicable to the additional fees incurred by specialty, personalized, or vanity license plates.
