BILL NUMBER:S1951 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to certain registrations of vehicles PURPOSE: To eliminate the additional attachment that is currently required of farm plated vehicle registration. This attachment must be kept with the vehicle registration at all times and creates onerous burdens on the industry. SUMMARY: Vehicle and Traffic Law Section 401 Subdivision 13 is amended to remove the additional vehicle registration requirement of attaching farm vehicle certification to the farm vehicle registration and having to make such documentation available at all times. JUSTIFICATION: This bill would reduce the unnecessary and cumbersome paperwork associated with farm plated vehicles and would help alleviate the regulatory burden the agricultural community already wrestles with. Farm plates provide New York producers with the opportunity to obtain a reduced rate for vehicle and plate registration for vehicles used exclu- sively in agricultural production. Currently, farm plated vehicles are restricted to travel within a 25-mile radius of the farm for their busi- ness needs such as traversing between fields, delivery to/from a land- fill and necessary repair and maintenance of the farm vehicle at a repair shop.
