        Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code.  Provides that commencing  with

   fee for persons who have claimed and received a grant under the Senior      
   Citizens and Disabled Persons Property Tax Relief  and  Pharmaceutical      
   Assistance  Act  applies  to  the  types  of  special plates issued to      
   veterans or their surviving spouses, parents, or siblings for which  a      
   fee  is  required  displayed  on  passenger  vehicles  (as  well as to      
   standard plates displayed on those vehicles).  Provides  that  persons
