Rep. Samuel A. Azzinaro’s legislation (2016-H 8008) that authorizes the creation of a special license plate for the Dorian J. Murray Foundation was heard in the House Committee on Finance Wednesday night.
“Dorian was a special young man who captured the hearts of people all over the globe. This license plate would further keep his memory alive while also contributing to the foundation in his name whose purpose is to fight pediatric cancer,” said Representative Azzinaro (D-Dist. 37, Westerly).
As with other specialty plates, the Dorian J. Murray Foundation plate would include a $40 issuance surcharge for those individuals ordering them, with $20 of that going to the foundation and the other $20 going to the state’s general fund. A $10 surcharge for annual renewal of the plates would go directly to the foundation.
A minimum pre-paid order of 900 sets of plates would be required before the Division of Motor Vehicles will begin issuing them.
The Dorian J. Murray Foundation’s mission is to assist charitable organizations in Rhode Island that demonstrate a strong commitment to enhancing the quality of life for children with pediatric cancer.
