BILL NUMBER:S7210

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to amend the penal law, in relation to unlawful manufacture,
production or reproduction of a vehicle identification number with
intent to defraud

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Adds a new subdivision (4) to section 170.65 of the penal law
regarding the unlawful manufacture, production or reproduction of a
vehicle identification number (VIN) with intent to defraud. A
violation of section would constitute a class E felony.

JUSTIFICATION:
This will add another tool in the fight against the auto theft and
fraud. The sophistication of equipment today in reproducing VIN's
warrants additional penalties to provide incentives against such
activities.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
First day of November next succeeding the date on which it shall have
become a law.
