BILL NUMBER:S2918

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation
to issuance of distinctive plates for the "75th Anniversary of Ducks
Unlimited"

PURPOSE: This bill would provide any person residing in this state,
upon request, a distinctive Ducks Unlimited license plate.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The vehicle and traffic law is amended by adding
a new section 404-x to create a distinctive license plate to mark the
75th anniversary of the Ducks Unlimited.

JUSTIFICATION: Last year marked the 75th anniversary of the founding of
Ducks Unlimited. An organization with such a deep and profound impact on
the community and environment in New York deserves due recognition by
the State.

Started in 1937 during the Dust Bowl when North America's drought-pla-
gued waterfowl populations had plunged to unprecedented lows, the organ-
ization's mission is habitat conservation. With almost 15,000 members in
New York State, Ducks Unlimited has become one of New York's top conser-
vationist organizations.

To date, they have conserved over 44,000 acres of land in New York and
spent over $23 million on projects in the State. Last year alone, Ducks
Unlimited raised over a million dollars for conservation projects.

This legislation would create a distinctive license plate to mark the
75th anniversary of the Ducks Unlimited.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: The first of April next succeeding the date on which it
shall have become law.
