An Act relative to a Massachusetts Boston Strong license plate.


              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

              SECTION 1. Section 2E of chapter 90 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2010 Official Edition, is hereby amended by inserting after subsection (c) the following subsection:-

              (d) The registrar shall furnish, upon application, to the owners of private passenger motor vehicles distinctive registration plates which shall display on the face a design indicating support for the One Fund Boston helping the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013 with the words “Boston Strong”.  There shall be a fee of not less than $50 for such plates in addition to the established registration fee for private passenger motor vehicles, which shall be payable at the time of registration of the vehicle and at each renewal thereof. One “Boston Strong” license plate may be issued free of charge to the parent, child, sibling or spouse of a family member killed or severely injured as a result of the events on or related to April 15, 2013. The portion of the total fee remaining after the deduction of costs directly attributable to the issuance of such plates shall be directed to the One Fund Boston.
