Robinson: Senate Approves Bill Honoring Pennsylvania Veterans with Specialty License Plate

HARRISBURG – Sen. Devlin Robinson’s (R-37) language in House Bill 2301 has been approved by the Senate today to allow recipients of the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal (GWOT-EM) to apply for a specialty license plate. The plate would honor Pennsylvania veterans who have earned the distinguished medal through their service overseas in the War on Terror.

“This legislation honors Pennsylvania veterans who bravely served overseas during the War on Terror, recognizing their unwavering dedication and sacrifice,” said Robinson. “The GWOT-EM license plate stands as a visible symbol of our community’s deep gratitude and respect, ensuring these heroes receive the acknowledgment they deserve for their invaluable contributions to our nation’s defense.”

The GWOT-EM was established by President George W. Bush on March 12, 2003, to recognize members of the Armed Forces who were deployed in direct service to the War on Terror following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The award symbolizes the bravery and dedication of those who have served in the ongoing fight against terrorism.

The bill now heads back to the House of Representatives.
