A05847 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A5847A
 
SPONSOR: Sweeney (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to violations of the uniform fire prevention and building code   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To subject persons who own buildings to a civil penalty if a building is constructed or used in violation of the uniform fire prevention and building code in a manner that impedes egress during afire or other emergency evacuation.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends the executive law to impose a civil penalty of up to seven thousand five hundred dollars when the construction or use of a building impedes egress from the building during a fire or other emergency evacuation.   EFFECTS OF PRESENT LAW WHICH THIS BILL WOULD ALTER: Adds a new subdi- vision to Section 382 of the executive law.   JUSTIFICATION: In recent years, there has been a proliferation of buildings that have been altered or otherwise used in a manner that violates the uniform fire prevention and building code in a manner that impedes egress during a fire or other emergency. In many instances, these unsafe conditions have resulted in the loss of life to tenants and other occupants of these buildings. In at least one instance, firefight- ers became trapped in a burning building when partitions were installed to create additional living quarters without regard to fire codes. This bill seeks to enhance penalties that may be imposed for creating these unsafe conditions,   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A. 10106 of 2012 - Referred to Government Operations.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
