BILL NUMBER:S3554

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation
to distinctive plates for gold star mothers

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This legislation will allow a Gold Star
Mother to keep one distinctive license plate, for commemorative purposes
only, upon surrender of such distinctive plates.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one amends section 404-i of the
vehicle and traffic law by adding a new section which would allow a Gold
Star Mother to retain one of two distinctive license plates upon surren-
der of such set. The plate shall be retained for commemorative purposes
only.

Section two provides for an immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently, a Gold Star Mother is required to return her
distinctive license plates honoring her child killed in service when
surrendering her license. These license plates have great sentimental
value and are a source of pride for the mother of fallen military hero.

This bill would allow a Gold Star Mother to keep one of her plates as a
commemorative plate. It also allows the Commissioner of DMV to make a
duplicate plate of the surrendered Gold Star Mother license plate at no
cost to the Gold Star Mother in the event that she has surrendered both
plates.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012: A8349 - Died in Transportation; S5693 -
Passed Senate

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediate.
