A03245 Memo:


TITLE OF BILL:  An act to amend the penal law, in relation to creating
a new crime for sale of a firefighter uniform

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To make it illegal to sell all or any
part  of  a  firefighter's uniform, unless it is to a member of a fire

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 adds a new section 190.28 to
the Penal law.

JUSTIFICATION: Firefighter  impersonation  is  just  as  dangerous  as
police officer impersonation and they should both be equally criminal.
This  bill  would  make  it  harder for people who want to impersonate
firefighters to get their hands on firefighter uniforms.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE  HISTORY:    2009-2010:  A7309;  referred  to  codes
2011-2012: A.2699; held for consideration in codes.


EFFECTIVE  DATE: This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after
it shall have become a law.
