Senator LaValle Announces Senate Passage of Special 9/11 License Plates

Press Releases

LaValle Bill Would Establish Commemorative Plates and Scholarship Fund for Families of Victims

New York, NY - June 10, 2014 - Today, Senator Ken LaValle announced that the State Senate passed his legislation to establish special license plates for the victims of 9/11.  The bill would commemorate all the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks by authorizing the issuance of distinctive commemorative license plates.  Portions of the charges collected for the plate would be used for the purpose of providing scholarship money for the families of September eleventh victims.
 
Senator LaValle said, “On September 11, 2001, our nation and, in particular our state, experienced an unforgettable tragedy.  Nearly 3,000 New Yorkers lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.  The families of those who tragically lost their lives because of that infamous day can take some comfort in knowing that no one has forgotten, with an additional modicum of assuagement in knowing that their children will have scholarship funds set aside for college tuition.”
 
The LaValle bill recognizes and commemorates all of those affected by the attacks on the World Trade Center by authorizing the issuance of distinctive commemorative license plates, and would direct portions of the fees collected to be deposited into the World Trade Center Memorial Scholarship Program established in 2002.  An annual service change of twenty five dollars shall apply to the plates. Twenty dollars of this annual sum shall be deposited to the credit of the World Trade Center Memorial Scholarship Program established under section 608 of the Education Law. The bill has been transferred to the Assembly for consideration.
