NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A4226
 
SPONSOR: DenDekker (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to eliminating the one-time service charge for the issuance of military license plates   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To eliminate the motor vehicle fee for military license plates for veterans.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Amends subdivisions 1-a of section 404 of the vehicle and traffic law, as added by chapter 415 of the laws of 2001, to eliminate the one-time fee for military license plates for veterans.   EXISTING LAW: Current fees for military license plates range from $10 to $ 70.   JUSTIFICATION: Specialized military license plates for veterans range from $10 to $70 in fees for special license plates. Veterans are our heroes who have sacrificed their lives to defend our freedom and our liberty. Exempting these veterans from the fees on military license plates is just one small way to thank them for their service.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2013/14 - A.4214 2012 - A.10140   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal   EFFECTIVE DATE: 30 days after it becomes a law.
