Bill Summary

Currently, Colorado residents who display a disabled veteran's license plate are allowed 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 allows a Colorado resident to acquire a free transferable annual state parks pass by presenting the same documents required for a Colorado disabled veteran's 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 are veterans with disabilities will be able to obtain free access to state parks without acquiring a Colorado disabled veteran's license plate.

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