My House Special Committee on Military and Veterans HB245 legislation passed the House today with a unanimous vote. The bill creates a special Alaska license plate for recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor, and will be issued at no cost. Currently, Alaska has no Medal of Honor residents, but with world affairs being what they are, that could change any day. This bill makes us ready.

Alaska already has a Purple Heart license plate for military service members wounded in action. HB245 now will issue the plate to POWs at no cost. POWs have already paid a very high cost in blood.

HB245 certainly isn’t a headline bill. It’s just a small token of respect to very special military people.
