BILL NUMBER:S2523

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to establishing
distinctive "Pink Ribbon" plates; and to amend the state finance law, in
relation to establishing the "breast cancer education and support fund"

PURPOSE:
This bill would establish a distinctive "Pink Ribbon" license plate
and provide for the use of the service charge for breast cancer
education and support.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill adds a new section 404-x to the vehicle and traffic law that
would authorize the creation of distinctive "Pink Ribbon" 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 to the breast cancer
education and support fund established in new section 95-h of the
state finance law.

JUSTIFICATION:
Breast cancer is the most common cancer-other than skin cancer-for
women in the U.S., and it is second only to lung cancer as the most
deadly. This year 185,000 women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer
and more than 40,000 women will die from the disease.
Breast cancer is a terrible disease and we need to make every effort
to reduce mortality rates and to someday find a cure. This bill will
help raise money to promote education and research in connection with
breast cancer and its cure.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-2010: S.6623/A.9378

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
