"With all of the services available to veterans, it only makes sense that Illinois streamline how these men and women carry identification," Mulroe said. "These men and women have served our country, so I think this is the least we can do."

The measure allows the Secretary of State's office to receive advice on how to best proceed with veterans IDs. The new veteran-specific IDs and drivers licenses would be available to all members of the armed forces.

Following the signing today, the bill becomes effective immediately.
