HARRIBURG—Legislation sponsored by Rep. Thomas Murt (R-Montgomery/Philadelphia) to give veterans a discount on state park fees has passed the House.

“I think this is a great way to honor our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who give so much so that we can be safe,” Murt said.

House Bill 1311 amends the Conservation and Natural Resources Act to provide a 15% discount on state park activity fees for active duty, retired and disabled military personnel and their immediate family.

The legislation would apply to active duty and retired military members and veterans who have a 100% service-related disability, plus their immediate family. Military personnel and veterans who qualify would have to provide identification in order to receive a discount.

House Bill 1311 now goes to the Senate for consideration.
