Governor Abbott Waives Certain Vehicle Registration, Titling, And Parking Placard Regulations In Texas

AUSTIN - Governor Greg Abbott has announced that Texas is waiving certain rules relating to vehicle registration, parking placards for persons with disabilities, and titling to aid the state's efforts to combat COVID-19. These suspensions will allow Texans to avoid penalties for failure to timely title or register a vehicle, or renew a parking placard. The waivers fall within the actions the Governor is taking under the State of Disaster he declared last week, and are part of Texas’ efforts to reduce in-person contact among Texans and slow the spread of COVID-19.

"The State of Texas continues to implement a comprehensive plan to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and that includes strategies to reduce preventable in-person contact," said Governor Abbott. "By suspending these rules, Texans can avoid unnecessary crowds and in-person contact without fear of being penalized. We encourage all Texans to continue practicing social distancing and to take preventative actions to protect their health and the health of those around them."

The Governor will work with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles to ensure law enforcement officers throughout the state are aware of these waivers. The Department of Motor Vehicles will also continue to provide registration renewal services online at renew.txdmv.gov. For additional information, Texans should contact the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles at (888) 368-4689.

The following regulations and rules are suspended under the Governor's Disaster Declaration:

Registration and Title Requirements:
-Statutory Sections: Transportation Code §§501.145; 501.146; 502.040; 502.407; 502.471; and 502.473
-Rules: 43 TAC §§217.4(a); TAC §217.28.

Renewal of Persons with Disabilities Parking Placards:
-Statutory Sections – Transportation Code §681.004; and §Transportation Code § 681.010.

30-Day Temporary Registration Permits:
-Statutory Sections – Transportation Code §502.095; and §502.471.

Greetings to the Soldiers, Families and Civilians within the Army Reserve Command. Here are some great changes that happened ont April 1, 2019. Please see the attached 5 page Army Directive 2019-17 (Changes to the Soldier and Family Readiness Group Program).
*
This is exciting news that Family Readiness Groups (FRG) will be changing from FRG's to Soldier and Family Readiness Groups (SFRGs). This means now all Soldiers are encouraged to sign up and Volunteer within your own unit or even perhaps with a unit in your own local area as a way to give back and support and share your knowlege and expertise. Soldiers that are not deploying within a 30 day deployment window my sign up and hold key positions as a SFRG Leader, Primary Treasurer, Alternate Treasurer, Secretary, Newsletter Chairperson, Key Caller Chairperson and Key callers just to name a few. All volunteers will be required to complete the necessary paperwork to become a Volunteer as well as be appointed in the Santion memo by the Unit Commander.
*
By becoming a Volunteer you are becoming a part of a community that loves to serve and assist Soldiers and Families in providing Moral and Welfare support. As a Volunteer you will be tracking your hours to turn back into the command and this validates the support in which you have provided each month. Your Volunteer hours will be turned into your appointed Family Readiness Laision (FRL), SFRG Leader and your supporting Family Readiness Support Assistant (FRSA). As your hours are validated then that also helps us to support you and your employment needs as your gain experience because your hours on voluteer hours support your work history with the command and that is something that you can put on your resume or on a college application.
*
Family Members adult and youth, Community Partners and DoD Civilians you are also still encouraged to Volunteer within your unit or within a unit in your community. So many of you have great experience and then is the perfect way to let your skills and talents shine for a greater good.
*
If you have questions about becoming a Volunteer you may contact your supporting FRSA and if you don't know who that person is you may contact Ms. Sanders at 719-317-4002 or by sending an email to [email protected]

Thought of all the soldiers who spent the tour scattered across the middle east when I saw this.
Veterans wronged by State Courts listen up as we may have a fix. We are conducting investigatory research for individuals who had their military retirement or VA disability unlawfully taken as part of a divorce, child support, or civil action where as part of the settlement your monies may have wrongfully been taken. We are creating a database of individuals who may be affected and are considering bringing a class action lawsuit against the US government for allowing State Courts, as well as DFAS, the VA, DOD, and other government entities to unlawfully attach, allot, garnish, or levy your VA disability or military retirement. Below is part of the wrongs we will be pushing to recover damages for and if you believe ANY of them apply, message and I'll contact you off the group, so as to protect your identity. This idea action is the result of a veteran having his VA disability taken under Title 42, and Title 5 where neither apply to VA disability. We found that the VA has been claiming that disabled veterans have to pay under the above sections, but Title 5 only applies to ACTUAL EMPLOYEES OF THE CIVIL SERVICE SYSTEM, not disabled veterans. When they were caught at that they started taking the monies under Title 42 which only applies if the veteran is also receiving a military retirement and has converted a portion of the retirement to VA disability. We think we have finally figured out how the VA is stealing VA disability and giving it to your former spouse(s), but we need to know how many people are affected by this. So, if you feel it applies to you, or you are a member of another veterans group, please message me, and repost this on the other sites you belong to. I think we may be able to recover damages for most involved, but we need to speak first. As I said, the database will only be seen by me, the other individual involved and the attorney we will be asking for advice. If you do not feel comfortable with me passing your name on, I can assign you a "John Doe' number and that will be all I'll forward to the other researcher and the attorney. AND I WILL NOT BE FORWARDING YOUR NAME TO THE VA UNTIL I HAVE YOUR PERMISSION!!! As my page meets the legal requirement for being considered as a news network, you are protected under whistleblower laws and I'll go to jail before giving up any sources! If you contact me, and I don't get back to you right away, please give me some time as I have over 5000 followers on this page alone and have many others linked to this page, but rest assured I WILL CONTACT YOU! Lots of vets have had their benefits stolen by DFAS and the VA, and we are looking at getting your money, as well as stopping this from going on any longer. Here are a few, and we are still developing other areas where we feel we can clearly show negligence on the current and past administrations, for decades. Here is a short background identifies by a follower on another page where he was trying to say it was legal, but was using laws written back in the '90s, laws that are no longer in effect. The sections that are not numbered are in response to his claims. First off, Title 5 ONLY APPLIES to federal employees, and if you are a disabled veteran, unless you were an employee of the federal government, Title 5, in its entirety is moot! Title 42 sec 1408 and it's subsections are what apply to military retirees and military retirees who have given up part of their retirement and it is inapplicable to disabled veterans or federal employees unless they are receiving, or have converted a portion of their military retirement to collect VA disability compensation. Even then the former spouse is only entitled to certain amounts, which some courts are ignoring and we believe DFAS is applying the law incorrectly and DFAS is or has taken more than the amount allowed under Title 42, which is 50% for a spouse only or 65% a spouse and child support is included, AND a section of 1408 states that the maximum amount must include any amount due in arrears, and as such, the amount taken should NEVER exceed 65%. Title 38 applies to VA disability only, not Title 5, Title 42, or any other not specifically spoken to under Title 38, as the secretary VA is the ONLY INDIVIDUAL who can attach, levy, or garnish any monies received solely as VA Disability Compensation, see Title 38 sec. 511, and there lots of case history verifying it cannot be touched by ANY COURT. unless it is received as retirement converted to VA Disability Compensation. A recent case, Howell v. Howell a US Supreme Court case validates that. So here's a portion of the issues we plan to address if it is feasible to bring a class action suit: 1. The President is derelict in failing to ensure his cabinet officials are following the laws of this Nation, and in doing so are causing harm to the level that veterans are committing suicide as a result of becoming depressed because of him unlawfully allowing his cabinet officials to ATTACH, LEVY, AND OR GARNISH VA Disability Compensation contrary to what is allowed under Title 38. 2. That the President and his cabinet officials are complicit in unlawfully allowing veterans VA Disability Compensation to be used under Title 5, and Title 38 which does not apply to non-military retired veterans as Title 5 ONLY applies to former employees of the Federal Government and is inapplicable to veterans receiving Title 38 monies, and Title 38 monies that are not received as a conversion of Title 42 military retired pay, do not apply. 3. That the President and his cabinet are allowing military retirement to be unlawfully apportioned by State Courts, whereas amounts or percentages in excess of the amounts allowed under Title 42 are being awarded to the former spouse, whereas Title 42 sec 1408 limit the amount that can be awarded to the former spouse as a property award to 50%, if the award is for a spouse only, and 65% if the award is for spousal support and child support. And, whereas Title 42 sec. 1408(4)(d)(6) specifically states that the award made shall be consistent with the awards (allowed) ...and said award shall include any awards of payments due as arrears. 4. That the President and his Secretary of Defense has allowed veterans, who were receiving military retirement, and who were involved in a divorce award, allowed said veterans military pay to be awarded by the court without consideration of the amount that was included under disposable retired pay, where the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, made the court ordered apportionment before deducting the payments that were to be made before final calculation of the disposable retired pay spoken to in Title 42 sec. 1408, and in doing so deprived the retiree/veteran of money due them by the US government as their portion of their disposable retired pay. When advised of the issue, the veteran would be told that he/she would need to recover the money through the court when the party who wronged the veteran was DFAS and as such the US government is liable for recovery. This issue, if it is not raised by the retiree/veteran continues to happen to this date. 5. That the Secretary of the Veterans Administration is negligent in allowing his employees to create apportionments in violation of Title 38 Sec. 5301, which prohibits the Levy, garnishment, or apportionment of ANY monies received under Title 38 unless said apportionment, levy or garnishment is considered under sec. 511 of Title 38. And it goes on from there. If anyone believes they have been wronged, please message me via facebook at facebook.com/veteransnewstoday and I'll collect your information and after you complete the required documentation you could be added to the class action suit. If you are unsure if it applies, please message me and I will arrange a time for us to speak. If you are unsure if you want to be involved, but want more information, message me. We believe proceeding with this class action is the way that we are going to be able to get ALL the current issues involving VA disability, and/or military retired pay fixed and the more involved the more likely that court is going to agree.
