AIDS Vanity Plates Considered by New York

May 1, 2007

State Assembly member Bill Magnarelli (Syracuse) in January introduced a bill to create an HIV/AIDS awareness auto license plate for New York. The bill has also been introduced in the upper chamber by Sen. Joe Robach (Rochester). The tag would cost $25 per year, plus the initial vanity plate fee of $43. Proceeds from the plate would go to the state Department of Health AIDS Institute and would be earmarked to help transport people with HIV/AIDS to their medical appointments. Magnarelli expects both bills to pass. "It seemed like a good idea. A lot of AIDS patients don't get the care they need because of transportation issues," he said.
