BILL NUMBER:S4155

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in
relation to creating the "September eleventh, two thousand one
remembrance" distinctive license plate program

PURPOSE:
This bill would commemorate all the victims of the September 11, 2001
terrorist attacks by authorizing the issuance of distinctive
commemorative license plates. Portions of the collected charges would
be used for the purpose of providing scholarship money for the
families of September eleventh victims.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

§ 1. The vehicle and traffic law is amended by adding a new section
404-x, which provides for the request and subsequent issuance of a
"September eleventh, two thousand one remembrance" distinctive
license plate.

Subdivision 2 provides that an annual service change of twenty five
dollars shall apply to such plates. Twenty dollars of this annual sum
shall be deposited to the credit of the World Trade Center Memorial
Scholarship Program established under section 608 of the Education Law.

JUSTIFICATION:
On September 11, 2001, our nation and, in particular our state,
experienced an unforgettable tragedy. Over 6,000 New Yorkers lost
their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade
Center. This bill recognizes and commemorates of all those affected
by the attacks on the World Trade Center by authorizing the issuance
of distinctive commemorative license plates, and by directing that
portions of the collected charges be deposited into the World Trade
Center Memorial Scholarship Program established in 2002. The families
of those who tragically lost their lives because of that infamous day
can take some comfort in knowing that no one has forgotten, with an
additional modicum of assuagement in knowing that their children will
have scholarship funds set aside for college tuition.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2005--Passed Transportation, Passed Rules, Third Reading
Calendar/Referred to Transportation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Per Fiscal Note of 2005/Approximated annual revenue of $175,000. The
scholarship program would receive $140,000 and the general fund $35,000.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect one hundred eightieth day after it shall
have become a law.
