Solomon introduces legislation for veterans and individuals with disabilities

HARRISBURG, Aug. 9 – State Rep. Jared Solomon, D-Phila., will introduce legislation that would alleviate parking issues for veterans and people with disabilities. 

“This commonsense proposal will ensure that individuals and veterans with disabilities have guaranteed parking that is close to their house, which improves their quality of life – especially in cities where parking is difficult. You serve our country with honor, and you are living with a disability; let’s make sure we provide a dedicated parking spot for you – and only you – outside your home.” Solomon said.

Currently, state law does not require municipalities to reserve parking spots near their home for people with placards and registration plates that designate a disability. Solomon’s legislation would require municipalities to do so upon request from a person with a disability.
