AS AMENDED BY

SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1

AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 21 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO SPECIAL LICENSE PLATES AND PARKING PERMITS FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES WHICH LIMIT OR IMPAIR THEIR ABILITY TO WALK.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:

Section 1. Amend §2134 of Title 21 of the Delaware Code by striking Subsection (c) thereof in its entirety and substituting in lieu thereof the following:

“(c) A special license plate may be issued under this section only if the applicant submits proof satisfactory to the Department that the applicant or a household member has a disability that is permanent with no prognosis for improvement as described in Paragraphs (a) (1) – (6) of this section. Satisfactory proof prior to issuance must include the signature of a licensed physician on a Department special disabled license plate or placard applicant form on which the physician certifies the applicant’s or household member’s permanent disability. Renewal of the registration for the vehicle to which the special license plate is assigned shall require the applicant to submit a written certification that he or she continues to require the special license plate for reason(s) it was initially issued; a new physician’s certification is not required. The issuance of a special license plate does not preclude the issuance of one (1) removable windshield placard pursuant to §2135 of this title.”

Section 2. Amend §2135 of Title 21 of the Delaware Code by striking Subsection (d)(3) in its entirety and substituting in lieu thereof the following:

“(d)(3) There is no limit to the number of times that a person may reapply for a permanent or temporary parking permit issued under this section. However, for each reapplication for a temporary parking permit, the applicant must comply with the requirements for an initial application as set forth in subsection (a) of this section. A new physician’s certification is not required for applicants or applicants’ household members who have a permanent disability as described in §2134 (a) (1)- (6) of this title; however, the applicant shall submit a written certification that he or she continues to require the parking permit for the reason(s) it was initially issued.”
