BILL NUMBER: S1507

TITLE OF BILL :

An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to
establishing distinctive "Support Our Troops" plates; and to amend the
state finance law, in relation to creating a Support Our Troops, Inc.
fund


PURPOSE :

To create the "Support Our Troops" distinctive license plate.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :

Section 1 -- Adds a new section 404-x to the Vehicle and Traffic Law
to create the "Support Our Troops" distinctive license plate.

Section 2 -- Adds a new section 99-t to the State Finance Law. This
section establishes a fund to collect monies for the "Support Our
Troops" charitable organization.

Section 3 -- Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION :

Many New Yorkers serve in the US military, reserves, or National
Guard, and some of these New Yorkers are even serving our nation in
very dangerous locations like Iraq and Afghanistan. If enacted into
law, this bill will allow New Yorkers to show our support for these
brave men and women through the "Support Our Troops" distinctive
license plate and also raise money for services for our men and women
in uniform.

Twenty-three states currently have "Support Our Troops" distinctive
license plates, and many other states are in the process of creating
these plates. New York should join these other states in creating
these distinctive license plates.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :

S.6743-A of 2008

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :

Undetermined.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after it
shall have become a law.
