BILL NUMBER:S301

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the parks, recreation and historic preservation law,
in relation to providing free use of state
parks to family members of deceased military

PURPOSE:
This legislation would allow family members of
those killed in action to receive free park passes.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 adds a new section
to allow family members of those killed in action to receive free
park passes.

JUSTIFICATION:
The families of those killed in action go through a
grieving process that none of us can imagine. As individuals who are
killed in action do not receive a DD214 the family is unable to apply
for a free parks pass, this legislation seems to remedy that problem.
This legislation is only a mere token of what the State of NY owes
these families, and their loved ones who died in service of this
State and Country.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the 60th day.
