BILL NUMBER:S5693

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to distinctive plates
for gold star mothers

PURPOSE:
This legislation will allow a Gold Star Mother to keep one distinctive
license plate, for commemorative purposes only, upon surrender of
such distinctive plates.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one amends section 404-i of the vehicle and traffic law by
adding a new section which would allow a Gold Star Mother to retain
one of two distinctive license plates upon surrender of such set. The
plate shall be retained for commemorative purposes only.

Section two provides for an immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Currently, a Gold Star Mother is required to return her distinctive
license plates honoring her child killed in service, when
surrendering her license. These license plates have great sentimental
value and are a source of pride for the mother of fallen military
personnel.

This bill would allow a Gold Star Mother to keep one of her plates as
a commemorative plate. It also allows the Commissioner of DMV to make
a duplicate plate of the surrendered Gold Star Mother license plate
at no cost to the Gold Star Mother in the event that she has
surrendered both plates.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediate.
