SENATE PASSES BILL TARGETING HANDICAPPED PARKING FRAUD

A bill authorizing the Registry of Motor Vehicles to investigate charges that someone falsely obtained a handicapped parking placard and allowing the RMV to require documentation to verify the stated reasons for a placard unanimously cleared the Massachusetts Senate on Thursday. The bill (S 2168) now heads to the House.
