NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A8866
 
SPONSOR: Thiele
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to authorizing the issuance of distinctive license plates for gold star families   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would authorize the issuance of distinctive license plates for gold star families.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Amends section 404-i of the vehicle and traffic law, as amended by chap- ter 277 of the laws of 1991, subdivision 1 as amended by chapter 732 of the laws of 2004, subdivision 3 as amended by chapter 486 of the laws of 1996 and such section as renumbered by chapter 108 of the laws of 1994, is amended to add gold star families as a license plate option alongside gold star mother plates.   JUSTIFICATION: The membership of American Gold Star Mothers, Inc. is composed of Ameri- can Mothers who lost a son or daughter during World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Beirut, Grenada, Panama, the Persian Gulf, Somalia, Bosnia, Saudi Arabia, all Strategic Areas, or while in service to our country. In 1991, New York State introduced a distinctive license plate for New York State Gold Star Mothers. Circumstances have arisen where a father of a fallen soldier has not been able to secure a distinctive license plate to honor their child. This bill would eliminate this unnecessary situation and add the option of a Gold Star Family plate alongside the Gold Star mother plate.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2015-16: A.9025 2013-14: A. 8378 2011-12: A. 7011 2009-10: A. 4664/S.603 2007-08: A. 5153 (Ortiz)/S. 604 2006: A. 10795(Ortiz)/S. 2850   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall have become a law, provided that effective immediately, the addition, amend- ment and/or repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for the implemen- tation of this act on its effective date is authorized and directed to be made and completed on or before such effective date.
