Int 0518-2014 ADonovan J. Richards Amended and Coupled on GORequiring secondhand automobile dealers to disclose whether automobiles have been recalled by the automobiles’ manufacturers.IntroductionThis bill requires secondhand automobile dealers to disclose recall information to consumers when selling automobiles, parts or equipment that are the subject of a recall by the national highway transportation safety administration or the NHTSA. Such disclosure, which would be signed by the purchaser, would be retained by the dealer for five years, and subject to inspection by the Department of Consumer Affairs. This bill would impose a $1000 fine for a first offense, a $1000 fine or imprisonment for a second offense, and suspension or revocation of a dealer’s license at the discretion of the commissioner for any subsequent offenses during a three year period.Approved by CouncilPass Action details Not available

Int 1028-2015 BLaurie A. Cumbo Amended and Coupled on GOCreating a sexual health education task force.IntroductionThis bill would create a sexual education task force. The task force would be comprised of a minimum of nine members, including at least three experts in sexual health education, at least one teacher from a New York City (NYC) public school, at least one staff person from an NYC public school who is not a teacher (such as a guidance counselor or social worker), at least two high school students, at least one expert in the field of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and gender non-conforming health education, and at least one representative from the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Members will be appointed by the Mayor after consultation with the Speaker of the Council. The task force would be responsible for reviewing information about the current recommended sexual health education curricula and the implementation of sexual health education in NYC public schools, as well as issuing a report with findings and recommendations for the improvement and expansion of the curricula and implementation in grades kindergarten through twelve. The task force, in conducting its review, would provide an opportunity for students and parents to provide comments and feedback.

Int 1346-2016 ACosta G. Constantinides Amended and Coupled on GOWater pollution control, including provisions relating to stormwater management and control of discharges into storm sewers.IntroductionIn 2015, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation issued a permit, under the federal Clean Water Act and the State Environmental Conservation Law, governing the operation of New York City’s municipal separate storm sewer systems (“MS4 Permit”), which governs stormwater infrastructure owned and operated by all City agencies, and requires management practices to reduce discharges of pollutants in stormwater runoff from all municipal operations and facilities in the MS4 area. This bill will fulfill the requirement in the MS4 Permit that the City demonstrate adequate legal authority to implement and enforce the terms of the Permit. In particular, the bill provides the City authority to act in a regulatory capacity to oversee and/or enforce requirements regarding activities that have the potential to contribute pollutants to stormwater runoff and the water bodies surrounding the City. Two of the programs addressed in the bill – involving stormwater runoff from commercial and industrial activities, and runoff from active construction sites and newly developed or redeveloped sites – involve the City taking over administration of existing State stormwater programs within the MS4 area. The third program, illicit discharge detection and elimination, continues, with minor updates, NYCDEP’s robust existing program to detect and address illicit discharges to the sewer system, and applies citywide.Approved by CouncilPass Action details Not available

As set out in Local Law 50/2015, in order to convert additional hotel space during the two-year period, a hotel owner will continue to apply to the Board of Standards and Appeals for a waiver in accordance with § 25-703 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York. The waiver procedure is already in place and would continue to be available after this bill becomes law. This bill would require a supplementary report to be prepared that analyzes the cumulative impact of the hotel industry, and particular sectors thereof, on the economy of the city.Approved by CouncilPass Action details Not available
