LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- So many people have been applying for handicap parking placards in Kentucky the state wants to start charging for them again.
The Kentucky House has passed a bill that would still let disabled people get one parking placard for free, but it would cost $10 to get another one.
In 2008, the state issued just over 32,000 signs. The next year, when the state stopped charging a fee, 209,000 signs were issued.
That made it difficult for many handicapped people to find parking spots.
The bill now heads to the Senate.
