BILL NUMBER: S691

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law and the state finance law,
in relation to authorizing distinctive license plates for former
members of the New York state legislature

PURPOSE :
This bill allows the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue distinctive
plates to former members of the New York State Legislature.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section 1 provides for the issuance of distinctive license plates for
former members of the New York State Legislature. The plate will have
the words "Former Member of the New York State Legislature."

Section 2 adds a new section 99-n to the state finance law to
establish the former member of the New York State Legislature trust
fund. Monies from such fund shall be used for environmental protection
purposes.

JUSTIFICATION :
Former members of the Legislature continue to be active leaders in
their community. They provide active guidance and support to many of
the people they served as elected state representatives. They take
pride in their previous accomplishments and remain important in their
capacity as private citizens. The State should recognize the important
contributions they have made and their potential future role in their
community by allowing for the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue
distinctive license plates to former members who request them.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after it
shall have become a law; provided, however, that effective
immediately, the addition, amendment and/or repeal of any rule or
regulation necessary for the implementation of this act on its
effective date is authorized and directed to be made and completed on
or before such effective date.
