BILL NUMBER:S842

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to the issuance of
distinctive plates for the United States merchant marine academy at
Kings Point

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
This bill allows the Department of
Motor Vehicles to issue distinctive plates to Alumni of the United
States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point..

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
The bill amends the vehicle and
traffic law by adding anew section 404-x that creates a distinctive
license plate for Alumni of the United States Merchant Marine Academy
at Kings Point.. The plate will bear the words "U.S, Merchant Marine
Academy at Kings Point".

JUSTIFICATION:
Kings Point is one of the five Federal service
academies and requires a congressional appointment to attend. The
United States Merchant Marine Academy is the only institution
authorized to carry a battle standard as part of the color guard, The
battle standard perpetuates the memory of 142 Academy midshipmen, who
during the course of World War II, lost their lives on supply ships
sunk by U-boats. In addition, Kings Point is still the only Federal
academy that sends its students into theaters of war, This
legislation will recognize the brave, and often unrecognized, service
men and women who attended the U. S" Merchant Marine Academy at Kings
Point and offer a small token of appreciation to those who served our
country so valiantly.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

S.7774 of 2010 - Referred to Transportation

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

EFFECTIVE DATE:
