Sen. McConchie Passes Legislation to Assist Disabled Veterans when Making Home Modifications

SPRINGFIELD- State Senator Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods) passed legislation that removes building permit fees for disabled Veterans when they need to modify their home to accommodate their disability.

“Navigating the complexities of home renovations is tough enough for disabled Veterans,” said Sen. McConchie. “This legislation ensures they don’t face additional financial strain with city permit fees.”

As an example, if someone comes back from military service disabled and needs to modify their home to accommodate their disability, they must currently pay a permit fee to their unit of local government on top of the cost they are already paying to make the required renovations.

Senate Bill 2751 would make sure that any time a disabled Veteran needs to make disability modifications to their home, the permit fees to the city will be waived.

“Our Veterans have done so much for us, and this is just one small thing we are able to do for them.” Said Sen. McConchie

This legislation has passed the Senate without opposition and will now be move to the House.
