A05847 Memo:

BILL NUMBER:A5847A

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
subdivision 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, firefighters 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.
