BILL NUMBER:S2325

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation
to issuance of distinctive plates for Catholic War Veterans of America

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Provides for issuance of distinctive
plates to "Catholic War Veterans of America."

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends the vehicle and traffic law by adding a
new section 404-x providing a distinctive plate to members of the
Catholic War Veterans of America.

JUSTIFICATION: First incorporated under the laws of the State of New
York in 1935, Catholic War Veterans of the united States of America has
been recognized by the Veterans Administration since 1940. Their mission
is one of service and education; they strive to help veterans and their
families, and to help promote national awareness of the unique problems
and needs of many veterans and their surviving family members. Catholic
War Veterans are justifiably proud of their participation in combat and
should have the opportunity, like countless others who have served our
country, to demonstrate that pride. Many other veterans' organizations
are currently recognized with their own distinctive plates. These
include:* American Legion,* Jewish War Veterans of America,* Korean War
Veterans, * Marine Corps Reserve, * Marine Corps League, * Navy Reserve,
* Veterans of Foreign Wars, * Vietnam Veterans, and * Veterans of World
War II The issuance of distinctive license plates is a small but impor-
tant way to recognize the contributions of the Catholic War Veterans in
conflicts large and small, as well as their service to their fellow
veterans in war and peace.
