  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subparagraph (i) of paragraph  (a)  and  paragraph  (b)  of
subdivision  3  of  section 490 of the vehicle and traffic law, subpara-
graph (i) of paragraph (a) as amended by chapter  235  of  the  laws  of
2002,  and  paragraph (b) as amended by chapter 600 of the laws of 1989,
are amended to read as follows:
  (i) The commissioner shall upon submission of an appropriate  applica-
tion,  upon payment of the prescribed fee, and upon being satisfied that
the person described is the applicant and that such applicant meets  the
requirements set forth in subdivision two of this section, issue to such
applicant  a  nontransferable  identification  card.    In addition, the
commissioner also shall require that an applicant for an  identification
card  or  renewal thereof provide his or her social security number. THE
COMMISSIONER SHALL PROVIDE SPACE SO THAT  AN  APPLICANT  MAY  REQUEST  A
NOTATION  UPON  SUCH  IDENTIFICATION CARD THAT HE OR SHE IS A VETERAN OF
THE UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES.
  (b) The identification card shall contain a distinguishing  number  or
mark and adequate space upon which an anatomical gift, pursuant to arti-
cle  forty-three of the public health law, by the holder may be recorded
and shall contain such other information and shall  be  issued  in  such
form as the commissioner shall determine; provided, however, every iden-
tification  card  or renewal thereof issued to a person under the age of
twenty-one years shall have prominently imprinted thereon the  statement
"UNDER  21  YEARS  OF  AGE"  in  notably  distinctive  print  or format.
PROVIDED, FURTHER, HOWEVER, THAT EVERY IDENTIFICATION CARD ISSUED TO  AN
APPLICANT  WHO WAS A MEMBER OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES AND
RECEIVED ON HONORABLE DISCHARGE OR WAS RELEASED THEREFROM  UNDER  HONOR-
ABLE  CONDITIONS  SHALL, UPON HIS OR HER REQUEST AND SUBMISSION OF PROOF

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