MILAM BILL TO CREATE “GOLD STAR FAMILY” ADVANCES

milamLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Jack Conners, Matthew W. Milam and Valerie Vainieri Huttle that would create a special license plate for the families of soldiers killed on active duty was signed into law on Monday.
The law authorizes a special Gold Star Family license plate for parents, siblings, spouse, children, stepparents and adoptive parents of servicemen and servicewomen who lost their lives while on active duty for the United States.
The design will include a gold star and the words “Gold Star Family.”
“Gold Star parents are the parents of heroes,” said Milam (D-Atlantic/Cape May/Cumberland). “Honoring them with this basic step is simply the right thing to do.”
Under the law, the Gold Star Mothers organization will verify eligibility for the plate, and no fee would be charged for the plate.
The bill was signed by Gov. Chris Christie at a ceremony at the Trenton War Memorial.
