AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to the issuance
  of special number plates for distinctive veterans plates


  Section  1.  Subdivision 1-a of section 404 of the vehicle and traffic
law, as added by chapter 415 of the laws of 2001, is amended to read  as
  1-a.  The  commissioner  may issue special number plates to applicants
who are [members of veterans organizations] VETERANS in the same  manner
as other number plates are issued pursuant to this article. Such special
number  plates  shall  be  issued  only  upon [(a) payment of a one-time
service charge of ten dollars in addition to  the  regular  registration
fee  prescribed  by  section  four hundred one of this article, and (b)]
submission of proof, satisfactory to the commissioner, that  the  appli-
cant  is [presently a member of the veterans organization for which such
plate is requested.  Such membership shall be verified annually  by  the
applicant]  A  VETERAN.  Application  for  such  plates shall be made in
accordance with regulations promulgated by the commissioner with respect
to the issuance  of  such  plates.    Provided,  however,  that  nothing
contained  herein shall be deemed to supersede the provisions of section
four hundred four-d, four hundred  four-e,  four  hundred  four-h,  four
hundred four-i, four hundred four-j, four hundred four-k or four hundred
four-p of this article.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
