My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.While on active duty, you rate the protections of the service members civil relief act. This law provides, among other things, that you can maintain your state of residence regardless of where the military may send you.So you can keep your TX plates if you like...no problem with that at all.But if your goal is get benefits afforded to residents of KS (KS has similar benefits as TX) you will need to become a resident of KS.
This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that KS has to recognize your Texas disabled vet status, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
So a handicap license plate from one state is not recognized in other states?
This depends on the state. Generally speaking a plate that indicates you have a disability would be valid for parking in a sister state.But what you are describing is a totally separate matter...States can make certain benefits available to residents (for example, free admission to parks) and are not required to make the same benefits available to non residents.Again, sorry to be the one to bear bad news
