Sacramento, CA — Governor Schwarzenegger has signed Senate Bill 1455, a bill co-sponsored by Dave Cogdill and Jeff Denham of Merced that will allow families who have lost loved ones in defense of this country to make use of Gold Star license plates.
Stated Cogdill; “I am so pleased the Governor signed this legislation. We worked for over two years to establish the Gold Star Family license plate. Now California can join the other 22 states that offer a similary special license plate for families that have lost a loved one in combat.”
The Department of Veterans Affairs will fund the Gold Star Family license plates using privately raised funds.
