MILITARY SERVICE ON STATE IDs ON HOLD UNTIL FALL
Military veterans who want to designate their service on driver’s licenses and other state identification cards will have to wait until fall.
The state awarded a contract worth about $350,000 to Morphotrust, a Massachusetts-based software company, to design a digital license and ID system per House Bill 221, which allows veterans to show their service on state-issued IDs.
Lisa Tolliver, a spokeswoman with the Transportation Cabinet, said the system is not complete but will be available to all county courthouses in the fall, though an exact date has not been set.
HB 221 became law Tuesday after it passed this year’s legislative session.
BENEFIT SLATED FOR AUTISTIC CHILDREN
