          read once and referred to the Committee on Transportation
        AN  ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to eliminating
          the photo image fee for veterans who have their license amended with a
          veteran notation
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
     1    Section  1. Paragraph (d) of subdivision 2 of section 491 of the vehi-
     2  cle and traffic law, as added by chapter 295 of the  laws  of  1983,  is
     3  amended to read as follows:
     4    (d) There shall be no fee other than a fee prescribed in paragraph (c)
     5  of  this  subdivision for an amended identification card. There shall be
     6  no fee, including the fee prescribed in paragraph (c) of  this  subdivi-
     7  sion,  for  an  amended identification card for an amendment that solely
     8  adds a veteran notation upon such  identification  card  that  the  card
     9  holder  is a veteran of the United States armed forces pursuant to para-
    10  graph (b) of subdivision three of section four hundred  ninety  of  this
    11  article.
    12    §  2.  Subparagraph  (ii) of paragraph (d) of subdivision 2 of section
    13  503 of the vehicle and traffic law, as amended by chapter 55 of the laws
    14  of 1992, is amended to read as follows:
    15    (ii) If a knowledge test or [test] tests are required to be passed  to
    16  secure  an  amended  learner's permit or license, the fees for taking of
    17  such test or tests specified in paragraph (a) of this subdivision  shall
    18  be  paid.  However,  if  an  amendment  is to add only an endorsement or
    19  endorsements which require only the  passing  of  a  knowledge  test  or
    20  tests,  a fee of five dollars shall be paid. If a road test or tests are
    21  required to be passed to secure an amended license, the fees for  taking
    22  such  test or tests specified in paragraph (b) of this subdivision shall
    23  be paid. If no knowledge or road test is required to secure  an  amended
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD09128-01-9

        A. 4916                             2
     1  license,  the  fee  required  for  such  amended  license  shall be five
     2  dollars. In addition, if the fee for the  amended  learner's  permit  or
     3  license  is  greater  than  the  fee for the learner's permit or license
     4  being  amended, the difference in fee shall be paid. If the amendment is
     5  only to correct or update a driver's record, no fee other than the photo
     6  image fee shall be required. No fee,  including  the  photo  image  fee,
     7  shall  be  charged for an amendment which solely adds a veteran notation
     8  upon such license that the driver is a  veteran  of  the  United  States
     9  armed  forces  pursuant to paragraph (a-1) of subdivision one of section
    10  five hundred four of this article.
    11    § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
