Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

    The purpose of this bill is to allow certain parking fees to be charged for accessible handicap parking spaces in parking garages and at parking meters.
    
    This bill also requires the Division of Motor Vehicles to renew handicap placards every five years and to provide information to the general public on handicap parking regulations.
