BILL NUMBER: S2396

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to the
issuance of distinctive plates for veterans of the Iraq conflict

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL :
Any veteran who resides in this State shall upon re~lest, be issued a
license plate bearing the words "Iraq Conflict Veteran." Application
for the license plate shall be filed with the commissioner of Motor
Vehicles in such form and detail as the Commissioner shall prescribe.

The distinctive plate shall be issued upon proof, satisfactory to the
Commissioner of Motor vehicles.

JUSTIFICATION :
From the earliest days of the colonial period to the present, men and
women have served as under appreciated heroes in every war and
countless "unofficial" skirmishes and conflicts throughout the history
of our nation. The issuance of distinctive license plates is a small
way to recognize the contributions of veterans' participation in
conflicts large and small, from the earliest days of unrest to the
present day operation Iraqi Freedom, as well as recognizing their
services during peacetime. These veterans are proud of their
participation in combat and should have the opportunity, like
countless others who have served our country, to demonstrate that
pride. We should commemorate those who have made contributions or set
precedents for future public service, as well as honor those who on a
daily basis protect the rights and freedoms of our nation and state.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
S.596 of 2007/2008

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect on April 1st.
