A10082 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10082B
 
SPONSOR: Titone
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general business law, in relation to certain lease agreements concerning dogs and cats   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This legislation would prohibit contracts where the dogs or cats are used as collateral.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: A new Section 753-e would be added to the Agriculture and Markets Law prohibiting contracts for the purchase or financing of purchases of dogs or cats that authorize the use of a dog or cat as security and the repossession of the pet when payments are not made. Purchases made with personal unsecured loans are not prohibited. All other laws protecting consumers who purchase dogs and cats and the sellers are not limited by the provision s of this law. A violation of this section could result in a pet dealer's license being denied, suspended or revoked.   JUSTIFICATION: Pet leasing is a predatory practice that preys on people who cannot always afford a companion animal. Many do not understand they are enter- ing into a lease agreement for an animal for multiple months. In the process, these individuals are forced to pay far more than they real- ized. These high interest lease arrangements mean the adopting family does not legally own their new pet. The leasing entity is the legal owner of the animal until all terms of the lease are met. Rhode Island and California have already outlawed this financial scheme. This legis- lation will put to an end the deceptive practice of pet leasing in New York State.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall have become a law.

        AN ACT to amend the general business law, in relation to  certain  lease
          agreements concerning dogs and cats
 
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. The general business law is amended by adding a new section
     2  753-e to read as follows:
     3    § 753-e. Prohibited contracts.  No contract for the purchase of a  dog
     4  or  a cat or the financing of such purchase shall include any provisions
     5  which authorize the use of a dog or a cat as security where such dog  or
     6  cat  may  be  repossessed  by  the  seller  or  lender contingent on the
     7  purchaser making payments under such contract. Provided, however,  noth-
     8  ing  in this section shall prohibit the purchase of a dog or cat through
     9  an unsecured personal loan, nor be construed to limit the enforcement of
    10  other provisions of this article, article twenty-six-a of  the  agricul-
    11  ture  and  markets  law  or other rights or remedies which are otherwise
    12  available to all parties under any other law.
    13    § 2. Subdivision 1-a of section 755 of the general  business  law,  as
    14  added by chapter 259 of the laws of 2000, is amended to read as follows:
    15    1-a.  Any  person  who violates any provision of section seven hundred
    16  fifty-three-a, seven hundred fifty-three-b, [or]  seven  hundred  fifty-
    17  three-c,  or  seven  hundred  fifty-three-e  of this article may also be
    18  subject to denial, suspension, revocation of, or refusal to renew a  pet
    19  dealer  license,  in  accordance  with  the  provisions of sections four
    20  hundred three and four hundred four of the agriculture and markets law.
    21    § 3. This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day  after  it  shall
    22  have become a law.
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD14227-07-8
