BILL NUMBER:S2521

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to establishing a
distinctive plate honoring the one hundredth anniversary of the Boy
Scouts of America

PURPOSE:
To establish a distinctive license plate
honoring the 100th
anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill adds a new section 404-x to the vehicle and traffic law that
would authorize the creation of distinctive "Boy Scouts of America"
license plates. It would require an additional annual service charge
of twenty-five dollars per each set of plates issued. The initial
service charges collected by the department of motor vehicles in
excess of six thousand dollars would be paid on a quarterly basis to
the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America for deposit into
the World Friendship Fund of the Boy Scouts of America.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Boy Scouts of America was founded in 1910 by William D. Boyce
and received a Congressional Charter in 1916. The people of the
State of New York immediately embraced the organization and were
among the first to establish local councils. In fact, long Island is
the home of America's first Eagle Scout, Arthur Eldred. There are
approximately 270,000 young men and women and 55,000 adult volunteers
who are a part of the Boy Scouts of America in New York State. This
legislation would create distinctive "Boy Scouts of America" license
plates that would allow vehicle owners to show their support for the
organization. The revenue generated by the issuance of these plates
would be deposited into the "World Friendship Fund" of Scouting for
the purpose of funding cooperative projects that bring scouts
together from all over the world.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-10: S.2158 - Referred to Transportation

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This Act shall take effect immediately.
