        Introduced by COMMITTEE ON RULES -- (at request of M. of A. DiPietro) --
          read once and referred to the Committee on Transportation
 
        AN  ACT  to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to creating a
          distinctive plate for active duty military service members
 
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:

     1    Section  1.  The  vehicle  and  traffic law is amended by adding a new
     2  section 404-ff to read as follows:
     3    § 404-ff. Distinctive plates for active duty military service members.
     4  1. Any active duty military service member serving in the  armed  forces
     5  of  the  United  States  shall,  upon request, be issued a license plate
     6  bearing the words "U.S. Military".  Application for said  license  plate
     7  shall  be  filed  with  the  commissioner in such form and detail as the
     8  commissioner shall prescribe.
     9    2. The distinctive plate authorized in subdivision one of this section
    10  shall be issued upon proof, satisfactory to the commissioner,  that  the
    11  applicant is an active duty military service member. The branch of mili-
    12  tary  service  shall  also  be  indicated on the license plate either in
    13  words or by the insignia of the branch served in.
    14    3. A distinctive plate issued pursuant to this section shall be issued
    15  in the same manner as other number plates upon payment  of  the  regular
    16  registration  fee prescribed by section four hundred one of this article
    17  provided, however, that an additional one time  service  charge  of  ten
    18  dollars shall be charged for such plate.
    19    4.  Nothing  contained  herein shall require the issuance of a special
    20  number plate under this section unless  the  commissioner  is  satisfied
    21  that  the  aggregate amount of annual service charges collected pursuant
    22  to subdivision three of this section will be sufficient to  recover  the
    23  costs of the design and manufacture of such special plates.
    24    §  2. 1. A distinctive plate established pursuant to section 404-ff of
    25  the vehicle and traffic law, as added by section one of this act,  shall
    26  only  be  designed, produced and issued upon the delivery to the depart-
    27  ment of motor vehicles of a surety bond in the amount  of  six  thousand
    28  dollars,  which  shall be executed by a surety company authorized by the

     4  hundred  orders  for such distinctive plate together with the additional
     5  annual service charge applicable to each  such  order,  which  shall  be
     6  non-refundable,  no  such  surety  bond  shall  be required. All service
     7  charges collected pursuant to this section shall be  deposited  pursuant
