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.
