Remove Red Tape for Missourians with Disabilities

26 so far! Help us get to 50 signers!

I am writing to express my strong support for SB 990 (Carter), which seeks to improve and streamline the verification process for individuals with disabilities. This proposed bill represents a crucial step forward in ensuring that those who are eligible for blind pensions and disabled parking privileges are able to access these vital services without unnecessary bureaucratic hurdles. One of the key provisions of this act is the extension of the certification period for blind pension recipients from 5 years to 7 years. This change recognizes the challenges faced by individuals with visual impairments and acknowledges that their condition is often permanent. By reducing the frequency of re-certification, this act will provide much-needed stability and peace of mind to blind pensioners, allowing them to focus on their well-being and quality of life. Additionally, the act eliminates outdated language that allows for reexamination of certain blind pensioners without sufficient cause. This revision ensures fairness and dignity for individuals receiving blind pensions, preventing undue stress and uncertainty about their eligibility for essential benefits. Furthermore, the act simplifies the renewal process for disabled person license plates and windshield placards by removing the requirement for a physician's statement if the applicant has already provided evidence of a permanent physical disability. This commonsense change reduces paperwork burdens and administrative costs, making it easier for individuals with disabilities to maintain their mobility and independence. In conclusion, SB 990 is a good piece of legislation that promotes efficiency, fairness, and respect for individuals with disabilities. I urge you to support this bill and help improve the lives of countless Missourians who rely on these critical services.
