BILL NUMBER:S3009

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in
relation to distinctive plates for medal of honor recipients

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Corrects an error on distinctive
plates for medal of honor recipients.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends section 404-p of the vehicle and traffic law to
provide for distinctive plates for medal of honor recipients.

Section 2 provides for the reissuance of distinctive plates provided
under section 404-p of the vehicle and traffic law at no fee or
service charge.

JUSTIFICATION: The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles issues
distinctive plates to New York State residents upon request, including
a plate bearing the words "Congressional Medal of Honor." The proper
name for this prestigious award, however, is the "Medal of Honor," as
indicated by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society and the
Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation. This legislation would
correct this error and provide for the reissuance of this distinctive
plate at no fee or service charge.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE:; This act shall take effect immediately.
