Memo

BILL NUMBER:S3554

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to distinctive plates for gold star mothers

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This legislation will allow a Gold Star Mother to keep one distinctive license plate, for commemorative purposes only, upon surrender of such distinctive plates.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one amends section 404-i of the vehicle and traffic law by adding a new section which would allow a Gold Star Mother to retain one of two distinctive license plates upon surrender of such set. The plate shall be retained for commemorative purposes only.

Section two provides for an immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently, a Gold Star Mother is required to return her distinctive license plates honoring her child killed in service when surrendering her license. These license plates have great sentimental value and are a source of pride for the mother of fallen military hero.

This bill would allow a Gold Star Mother to keep one of her plates as a commemorative plate. It also allows the Commissioner of DMV to make a duplicate plate of the surrendered Gold Star Mother license plate at no cost to the Gold Star Mother in the event that she has surrendered both plates.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012: A8349 - Died in Transportation; S5693 Passed Senate

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediate.
