  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-

  Section 1. The vehicle and traffic law is  amended  by  adding  a  new
section 404-bb to read as follows:
  S  404-BB. DISTINCTIVE PLATES FOR BRONZE OR SILVER STAR RECIPIENTS. 1.
ANY RECIPIENT OF A BRONZE STAR OR A SILVER STAR RESIDING IN  THIS  STATE
OR  THE  SPOUSE  OF  ANY SUCH RECIPIENT SHALL, UPON REQUEST, BE ISSUED A
LICENSE PLATE BEARING THE WORDS "BRONZE STAR RECIPIENT" OR "SILVER  STAR
RECIPIENT".  IF A DISTINCTIVE PLATE IS ISSUED TO A BRONZE OR SILVER STAR
RECIPIENT  PURSUANT  TO THIS SECTION, SUCH A DISTINCTIVE PLATE SHALL NOT
BE ISSUED TO THE SPOUSE OF SUCH RECIPIENT. APPLICATION FOR SAID  LICENSE
PLATE  SHALL  BE  FILED WITH THE COMMISSIONER IN SUCH FORM AND DETAIL AS
THE COMMISSIONER SHALL PRESCRIBE.
  2. THE DISTINCTIVE PLATE AUTHORIZED IN THIS SECTION  SHALL  BE  ISSUED
UPON  PROOF, SATISFACTORY TO THE COMMISSIONER, THAT THE APPLICANT OR THE
SPOUSE OF THE APPLICANT IS A BRONZE OR SILVER STAR RECIPIENT.
  3. A DISTINCTIVE PLATE ISSUED PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION SHALL BE ISSUED
IN THE SAME MANNER AS OTHER NUMBER PLATES UPON PAYMENT  OF  THE  REGULAR
REGISTRATION FEE PRESCRIBED BY SECTION FOUR HUNDRED ONE OF THIS ARTICLE,
PROVIDED,  HOWEVER,  THAT  AN  ADDITIONAL ONE-TIME SERVICE CHARGE OF TEN
DOLLARS SHALL BE CHARGED FOR SUCH PLATE.   PROVIDED, HOWEVER,  THAT  ONE
YEAR  AFTER  THE  EFFECTIVE DATE OF THIS SECTION, FUNDS IN THE AMOUNT OF
FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS, OR SO MUCH THEREOF AS MAY BE AVAILABLE, SHALL  BE
ALLOCATED  TO  THE  DEPARTMENT  TO  OFFSET  COSTS  ASSOCIATED  WITH  THE
PRODUCTION OF SUCH LICENSE PLATES.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred twentieth day after
it shall have become a law.
