A bill that would allow military veterans in Nebraska to display their status on license plates and state identification cards is headed to the floor of the Legislature.

The Transportation and Telecommunications Committee advanced the proposal last week, 6-0, and designated it as a priority bill. The committee's chairwoman, Sen. Annette Dubas of Fullerton, is expected to speak about the bill during a press conference Tuesday at the Capitol.

The bill creates a "veteran" designation for driver's licenses and identification cards. An amendment would allow "Military Honor" license plates for active service members and veterans.

Supporters say the designation could help veterans receive discounts offered by businesses, or signal to law enforcement that a person may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.

The bill is LB93.
