BILL NUMBER:S2098

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

PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill is to impose greater penalties for
the fraudulent production of vehicle identification number (VIN).

SUMMARY OF 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,

EXISTING LAW:

Section 170.65 of the penal law.

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.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

EFFECTIVE DATE: The bill shall take effect on the first day of the
