A plan that aims to make it easier for veterans with disabilities to get a handicapped parking designation is now law.

Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation Tuesday in Villa Park. The law says veterans who have a permanent disability no longer have to submit documentation through a doctor each year to get a handicapped parking designation or special license plate. The law takes effect in January of next year.

Quinn says veterans with disabilities shouldn't have to deal with unnecessary barriers to retain parking privileges each year.
