BILL NUMBER:S2649 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law and the state finance law, in relation to establishing a distinctive "New York recycles" license plate PURPOSE: The bill would promote reduction, reuse and recycling in NYS through the production of this license plate and would also raise money for the Environmental Protection Fund to be allocated to municipal waste reduction and recycling projects. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: The bill would amend the Vehicle and Traffic Law adding a new section 404-x to change the current "organization plate" for "New York Recycles" to an "issues" license plate available for an additional annual twenty five dollar charge. The license plate would still be titled "New York Recycles" and it would promote reuse, recycling and recovery in New York State. The bill would require the twenty five dollar annual service charge from each license plate sale to be credited to the Environmental Protection Fund Solid Waste Account to fund municipal waste reduction or recycling activities. The bill amends subdivision 3 of section 92-s of the state Finance Law
