Gov. Dennis Daugaard has signed four bills dealing with veterans issues during a ceremony in the Capitol rotunda.
The bills approve special license plates for veterans with disabilities, allow veterans to receive credit for certain military training and expertise, designate March 30 as Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day and expedite licenses, registrations and permits for spouses of activity duty military.
Daugaard also commemorated three other measures signed Monday. Those bills appropriate money to build a new state veterans home in Hot Springs, designate the third Friday in September as POW/MIA Recognition Day and make Aug. 7 Purple Heart Recognition Day.
All of the special days are considered working state holidays.
