Governor Corbett says guidebook will help businesses, lure investors

Gov. Tom Corbett recently unveiled a resources guidebook that markets Pennsylvania's business and energy sectors and its government programs, and billed it as a way to lure business people and investors to the state. Flanked by two-year students studying diesel engine technology, Corbett released the guidebook at a news conference at Pennsylvania College of Technology's Earth Science Center near Williamsport, in the heart of north-central Pennsylvania's booming natural gas industry. Corbett said the 73-page guide will provide business people and local government officials with information about the state's resources and programs. It is billed as being full of information that demonstrates that Pennsylvania is a good place to do business, with attributes such as diverse energy sources, a skilled workforce and a competitive business environment.

Veterans Designation Frequently Asked Questions

Why was the Veterans Designation created and what does it look like?
Act 176 of 2012 has allowed PennDOT to issue a Pennsylvania driver’s license or identification card that clearly indicates that the bearer is a veteran of the United States Armed Forces. This has been accomplished by creating an icon consisting of the American Flag with the word “Veteran” beneath it for placement on the front of the bearer’s driver’s license or identification card.

Who is eligible for a Veterans Designation?
Qualified applicants for a Veterans Designation on their driver’s license or identification card include those who have received a Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty/DD214 or equivalent for service in the United States Armed Forces, including a reserve component, or the National Guard who were discharged or released from such service under conditions other than dishonorable.

How Do I obtain a Veterans Designation on my Driver’s License or ID card?
Qualified applicants should visit www.dmv.state.pa.us and click on the American Flag icon with the phrase “Veterans Designation” beneath it. Applicants will be given the opportunity to renew or order a duplicate driver’s license or identification card which will contain the designation.

Do I have to pay for the Veterans Designation?
There is no fee for the Veterans Designation itself; however, qualified applicants must pay any applicable initial issuance, renewal or duplicate driver’s license or identification card fees.
