These documents contain text of correspondence sent by TxDMV to the county tax assessor-collectors, statutory agents who provide vehicle registration and titling services for citizens in Texas. This information is provided to apprise the general public of issues affecting the state's vehicle titling and registration process.
To notify you of a statute change made by House Bill 2080 enacted by the 82nd Legislature, Regular Session.
Effective immediately, HB 2080 revises Transportation Code Section 681.003(f) authorizing a licensed physician's assistant to sign the Form VTR-214, Application for Persons with Disabilities Parking Placard and/or License Plate. A licensed physician's assistant includes an Advanced Practice Nurse as defined in Occupations Code Chapter 301. HB 2080 removed the requirement that the applicant reside in a county with a population of 125,000 or less and now will apply to all Texas counties.
The Form VTR-214 has been revised to reflect this change. A copy of the revised form is attached for your information.
If you need additional information, please contact your local TxDMV Regional Service Center.
