Bill Summary

The act allows Colorado residents who display a purple heart special license plate free entrance to any state park or recreation area, not including campgrounds, on any day of the year that such park or area is open.

The act also allows a Colorado resident to acquire a free transferable annual state parks pass by presenting the same documents required for a purple heart special license plate at a regional office or the central office of the division of parks and wildlife, or at any other locations the division determines. Thus, Colorado residents who have received a purple heart will be able to obtain free access to state parks without acquiring a purple heart special license plate.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
