A06528 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A6528
 
SPONSOR: Ra
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law, in relation to requiring town attorneys to institute proceedings to collect fines, restitution or reparation in towns contained within Nassau and Suffolk counties   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This would enable local governments that are owed fine money by corpo- rations to collect on those judgments and will did in enforcement of code violations.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends section 420.20 of the criminal procedure law, as amended by chap- ter 290 of the laws of 1980.   JUSTIFICATION: It appears as though there may be in excess of $8,500,000.00 in default judgments in Nassau County District Court alone that are due to the towns of Hempstead, North Hempstead, and Oyster Bay. Currently collection of fines imposed upon corporations are the duty of the county attorneys anywhere outside of New York City, but the county attorney of Nassau does not expend any time seeking to recover these various towns' fines nor is there any incentive for them to do so.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: To be determined   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
