BILL NUMBER:S2863

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation
to creating the "September eleventh, two thousand one remembrance"
distinctive license plate program

PURPOSE: This bill would commemorate all the victims of the September
11, 2001 terrorist attacks by authorizing the issuance of distinctive
commemorative license plates. Portions of the collected charges would be
used for the purpose of providing scholarship money for the families of
September eleventh victims.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

1. The vehicle and traffic law is amended by adding a new section 404-x,
which provides for the request and subsequent issuance of a

"September eleventh, two thousand one remembrance" distinctive license
plate.

Subdivision 2 provides that an annual service change of twenty five
dollars shall apply to such plates. Twenty dollars of this annual sum
shall be deposited to the credit of the World Trade Center Memorial
Scholarship Program established under section 608 of the Education Law.

JUSTIFICATION: On September 11, 2001, our nation and, in particular our
state, experienced an unforgettable tragedy. Over 6,000 New Yorkers lost
their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade
Center. This bill recognizes and commemorates of all those affected by
the attacks on the World Trade Center by authorizing the issuance of
distinctive commemorative license plates, and by directing that portions
of the collected charges be deposited into the World Trade center Memo-
rial Scholarship Program established in 2002. The families of those who
tragically lost their lives because of that infamous day can take some
comfort in knowing that no one has forgotten, with an additional modicum
of assuagement in knowing that their children will have scholarship
funds set aside for college tuition.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2005--Passed Transportation, Passed Rules, Third
Reading Calendar/Referred to Transportation. S.4155 of 2012 Referred to

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Per Fiscal Note of 2005/Approximated annual reven-
ue of $175,000. The scholarship program would receive $140,000 and the
general fund $35,000.
