BILL NUMBER: S2395

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law and the state finance law,
in relation to creating a distinctive license plate for the Drug Abuse
Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program

PURPOSE :
The purpose of this bill is to provide any person residing in this
state, upon request, a distinctive Drug Abuse Resistance Education
(D.A.R.E.) license plate.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS :
Section 1. The vehicle and traffic law is amended by adding a new
section 404-x. Section 2. The state finance law is amended by adding a
new section 97-jjjj.

JUSTIFICATION :
Distinctive plates will help expand the public's awareness of the
D.A.R.E. program in New York State.

The D.A.R.E. program and comprehensive (17 lesson) elementary school
curriculum was designed by health and substance abuse educators.
Rather than relying on the traditional scare tactic approach to
dissuade children from drug abuse, the DARE strategy focused on
assisting children with development of the "life skills" (i.e.,
decision-making, risk identification, peer pressure resistance) to
make well informed decisions - even beyond avoiding drug abuse (i.e.,
personal safety, resisting conflicts and violence). Close
collaboration between educators, law enforcement, parents, and others;
demanding instructor training; and focusing efforts on the transition
period between elementary and junior high school were also essential
elements of DARE strategy from the beginning.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
S.8013A of 2006
S.595 of 2007/2008

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after it
shall have become law; provided, however, that any rule or regulation
required to implement the foregoing provisions of this act shall be
promulgated on or before such effective date.
