BILL NUMBER:A4226

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.
