Int 0805-2015 *Daniel Dromm Civil RightsExpanding the protections of the city of NY human rights law with regard to public accommodations, and making certain technical corrections.IntroductionThe New York City Human Rights Law prohibits anyone who owns, leases, runs or manages a place of public accommodation (such as a store, restaurant, or government agency), or their employees, from denying someone access to the product or benefit being offered to the public for discriminatory reasons. This bill amends that law in two key ways. First, this bill adds three types of people to the list of those who cannot discriminate: anyone who buys or sells a franchise and anyone who leases space to a provider of public accommodations. Second, the bill declares that it is illegal to offer a person who is or is perceived to be a member of a protected class the same benefits, services, or privileges as everyone else, but in such a way that they do not receive “the full and equal enjoyment” of those benefits on “equal terms and conditions,” or to use discriminatory advertisements and public statements.

With certain conditions, such program would permit those who are subject to judgments as a result of a default decision to resolve those judgments by paying the base penalty and having the default penalty and accrued interest waived. It would also permit, with certain conditions, those who are subject to judgments as a result of a finding by the ECB that they were in violation to resolve those judgments by paying 75 percent of the imposed penalty and having the accrued interest waived. After the conclusion of the temporary program, for any judgment that arose from a default decision that was eligible to be resolved as part of the temporary program, the Department of Finance would not be permitted to resolve such judgment by accepting payment of anything less than half of the default penalty and accrued interest.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available

This bill would clarify that the ECB should treat a generic notice in the same manner as if the notice had cited the owner of the specified entity or premises by name. This bill would also require an agency that issues a generic notice to make reasonable efforts to learn the respondent’s name after issuing the notice. Finally, the bill would provide that where a default decision is rendered on a generic notice and the judgment is given to the Department of Finance for collection, the Commissioner of Finance must make reasonable efforts to learn the respondent’s name.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available

This bill would amend section 10-102 to prohibit the public use of any portable device for the purposes of receiving or transmitting signals on police or fire department frequencies. This bill would define portable devices to include radio receiving and transmitting sets, cellular phones, tablets and other mobile devices equipped with electronic applications that enable the user to transmit, receive or translate signals, received on frequencies allocated to the police or fire department. The bill would exempt police or peace officers acting under official capacity, individuals with a valid permit issued by the Police Commissioner, and individuals with an Armature Radio Operator’s License issued by the Federal Communications Commission.

The bill would require such rules to include certain factors for agencies to consider when making the determination to deny, suspend, terminate or revoke, including (1) whether the applicant, licensee, permittee or registrant has other debt owed to the city; (2) the amount of unpaid civil penalties owed; (3) whether the underlying violation is one of a series of violations and the nature of the underlying violation; and (4) whether the unpaid civil penalties were imposed due to a finding of default decision that was then vacated, or whether the applicant, licensee, permittee or registration has made a request to vacate a default and obtain a new hearing. The bill would clarify that such agencies would not be limited to the considerations required by the bill and may consider any additional factors in making a determination. The bill would exempt agencies that have adopted a rule or policy prior to the effective date of the bill that substantially meets the requirements of the bill. The bill would also require agencies to provide an annual report to the Council including the number of applications received; the number denied pursuant to such rules; the number of licenses, permits or registrations suspended, terminated or revoked; and list of the types of licenses, permits or registrations issued by such agency and the time period for which such licenses, permits or registrations are issued.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available

Failure to yield is a traffic infraction, rising to a misdemeanor if injury is caused; however, it is not a violation if the failure to yield and/or injury was not caused by the driver’s failure to exercise due care. Under the bill, in relation to due care, consideration would be given to visibility, illumination, weather conditions, roadway conditions, roadway design, faulty vehicular equipment or design, and whether such pedestrian or person was in violation of any provision of State law relating to the obligations of pedestrians and cyclists at the time of such failure to yield.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available

Int 0817-2015 *Darlene MealyCivil RightsClarifying the definition of “place or provider of public accommodation” in the city human rights law.IntroductionThe New York City Human Rights Law prohibits anyone who owns, leases, runs, manages or works for a “place or provider of public accommodation” from discriminating against customers on protected grounds such as race, gender, and age. The law defines “place or provider of public accommodation” broadly, covering “providers” of “goods, services, facilities, accommodations, advantages or privileges of any kind” and covering places that offer those goods, services, and the like. That definition has always covered, but not explicitly listed, government bodies that provide such goods and services to the public. The Human Rights Law currently defines the term “person” to include government bodies.

The correlated color temperature of a streetlight is defined as the perceived color of the light emitted by a lamp, which is expressed in Kelvin (K) units. The color tone can range from warm (yellow and red) lighting to cool (blue) lighting.
