BILL NUMBER:S269

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to providing
distinctive license plates for combat medics

PURPOSE:
Provides for the issuance of Combat Medic license plates for vehicles.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 amends §404-x of the Vehicle and Traffic law to include
distinctive license plates for Combat Medics who were awarded the
Combat Medical Badge. Section one states the requirements for
application and the fees to purchase such license plates.

Section 2 contains the effective date.

EXISTING LAW:
No such license plate currently exists.

JUSTIFICATION:
New York currently offers a custom license plate recognizing Combat
Infantrymen. However, there is no license plate to recognize Combat
Medics. Combat Medics serve wherever Combat Infantrymen do and the
number of points needed for promotion are equal for the Combat
Infantryman Badge and the Combat Medic Badge.
