Monday, he said he intends to amend current law that grants war veterans special license plates to include anyone awarded the Bronze Star, Silver Star or Distinguished Service Cross.
Bryant, a Savannah Democrat, said he is introducing the bill at the request of Garden City Police Chief David Lyons.
Bryant served himself in the military during the Vietnam War and earned a few medals but none of the top honors for valor that would get a free, distinctive car tag.
“I don’t regret the fact that I’m not a hero,” he said with a smile.
The legislation would also grant the veterans and medal winners tags for their trailers as well. Now, they’re limited to tag for vehicles.
