Governor Brown Signs Veteran Driver’s License Bill

Legislation by Assemblymember Frazier Will Help

Improve the Lives of California Veterans


Sacramento, CA – Assembly Bill 935, authored by Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D – Oakley), was signed into law today by Governor Brown. Beginning Veterans Day of 2015, this legislation will allow a veteran to apply for a California driver’s license or identification card with a designation that clearly identifies the individual as a veteran.  

“This bill has been my top priority this legislative session,” said Assemblymember Frazier. “California is home to the nation’s largest veteran population, nearly two million, yet almost one million have not been identified. AB 935 will play a critical role in improving access to the resources, benefits and services for individuals who have served our country.”

There are a number of federal, state and local benefits and services available to veterans, including: assistance with employment, housing, health and counseling, educational opportunities and more.  Many of these services are coordinated through the County Veteran Service Officers (CVSOs), who help veterans, their dependents and survivors access benefits. The ability to increase veteran outreach will help veterans receive benefits and services they may be eligible for while also increasing the amount of claims that CVSOs file.

"When implemented, this bill has the potential to bring California veterans over $750 million in direct federal benefits,” said Pete Conaty, retired Army veteran and advocate for over 20 veterans groups. “We want to thank Assemblymember Frazier for his tenacity on this issue. Without his leadership, this bill would not have gotten to the Governor’s desk."   

The designation will also be helpful to medical and law enforcement entities, many of whom have strongly advocated this legislation. Supporters maintain that the designation would ensure that medical and law enforcement workers are informed of an individual’s veteran status so that they can appropriately treat a veteran who may be suffering from medical trauma, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), as a result of their service.

“Recognizing and honoring the sacrifices of our nation’s heroes is of the utmost importance to me,” said Assemblymember Frazier. “I’m very proud to say that despite the hurdles and temporary setbacks this bill has faced over the past few years, our perseverance has paid off and will enrich the lives of veterans statewide.”
