BILL NUMBER: S2399

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to the
issuance of distinctive plates for veterans of the Afghanistan
conflict

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL :
Any veteran who resides in this State shall upon request, be issued a
license plate bearing the words "Afghanistan Conflict Veteran."
Application for the license plate shall be filed with the Commissioner
of Motor Vehicles in such form and detail as the Commissioner shall
prescribe.

The distinctive plate shall be issued upon proof, satisfactory to the
Commissioner of Motor Vehicles.

JUSTIFICATION :
From the earliest days of the colonial period to the present, men and
women have served as under appreciated heroes in every war and
countless "unofficial" skirmishes and conflicts throughout the history
of our nation. The issuance of distinctive license plates is a small
way to recognize the contributions of veterans' participation in
conflicts large and small, from the earliest days of unrest to the
present day operation Iraqi Freedom, as well as recognizing their
services during peacetime. These veterans are proud of their
participation in combat and should have the opportunity, like
countless others who have served our country, to demonstrate that
pride. We should commemorate those who have made contributions or set
precedents for future public service, as well as honor those who on a
daily basis protect the rights and freedoms of our nation and state.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
S.1969 of 2005/2006, S.593 of 2007/2008

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect on the first of April next succeeding the
date on which is shall have become a law.
