With a 110-0 vote and no debate, the House answered requests made by women veterans in numerous legislative committee meetings during the past two months.

Rep. Jerry Newton, D-Coon Rapids, said that he has heard from many women veterans who say "they are tired of driving their cars" with veterans' license plates, only to have people come up and tell them "thank your husband for his service to the country."

A similar bill awaits a Senate vote.
