BILL NUMBER:S2049

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the agriculture and markets law, in
relation to the delivery of liquefied petroleum gas

PURPOSE: This bill prohibits the filling, emptying or use of any lique-
fied petroleum gas container, except by the owner or by a person author-
ized in writing by the owner.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 192-e of the Agriculture and Markets Law is amended to prohibit
the filling, emptying or use of any liquefied petroleum gas container,
except by the owner or by a person authorized in writing by the owner.

JUSTIFICATION: Consumers have been enticed by unethical propane fuel
dealers to purchase propane fuel and have their propane tank serviced
based on misleading advertised prices. In these instances, where the
propane tank is owned by a different propane dealer than the dealer
supplying the fuel, there often is little regard for the safety and
welfare of the tank during the fueling transaction as well as no regard
for the safe handling and storage of the potentially hazardous fuel-
endangering both consumer and property (i.e. tank and consumer's resi-
dence).

As a result, propane consumers are defrauded and propane dealers suffer
damages resulting from the unauthorized use of their property (i.e.
propane tank) for which they remain responsible. This bill seeks to
protect the consumer and propane dealer which owns the consumer's tank
by limiting fuel transfers to the owner of the propane tank or those
authorized in writing by the owner of the propane tank.

AN ACT to amend the agriculture and markets  law,  in  relation  to  the
  delivery of liquefied petroleum gas

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivision 6 of  section  192-e  of  the  agriculture  and
markets  law,  as  amended  by  chapter 679 of the laws of 1980 and such
section as renumbered by chapter 716 of the laws of 1989, is amended  to
read as follows:
  6. A. Each delivery of liquefied petroleum gas sold on a package basis
in  cylinders  or  containers to consumers and each delivery of such gas
from a vehicle tank or other vessel into tanks, cylinders or  containers
connected  to  consumer  apparatus  when  sale is based on a quantity so
delivered, shall be accompanied by a delivery ticket and duplicate ther-
eof. On such ticket and duplicate thereof shall be distinctly  expressed
in ink or other indelible substance the date of delivery, the net weight
or  volume of such liquefied petroleum gas delivered, the price per unit
of metric or customary measure, the total price, the name and address of
the seller and the name and address of the purchaser of  such  liquefied
petroleum gas; provided, however, that such delivery ticket need not set
forth  the  total  price  if  within five days after delivery the seller
provides the buyer with a written statement setting forth all the  fore-
going  information  including the total price. Delivery tickets shall be
serially numbered or the serial number  of  the  cylinder  or  container
shall  be  legibly  marked  on such delivery ticket. One of such tickets
shall be delivered to the person receiving the liquefied petroleum  gas,
and  the  other  ticket shall be retained by the seller of the liquefied
petroleum gas for  a  period  of  one  year  and  shall  be  subject  to
inspection by any weights and measures official within this time.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
