BILL NUMBER:S5525

TITLE OF BILL: An act to repeal sections 28-104.6.1 and 28-211.1.2 of
the administrative code of the city of New York, paragraph e-1 of
subdivision 4 of section 6507 of the education law and section 4 of
chapter 542 of the laws of 2007, amending the administrative code of
the city of New York and the education law relating to filings by
persons who have negligently or knowingly made false statements in
documents submitted to the department of buildings of the city of New
York, relating to the department of buildings of the city of New York

PURPOSE: To repeal Chapter 542 of the Laws of 2007.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This legislation repeals Chapter 542
of the Laws of 2007.

JUSTIFICATION: This bill would repeal certain sections of law to
ensure that New York State licensed architects practicing in New York
City are not subject to a disciplinary process that differs from the
process utilized by the State Education Department for all licensed
architects in the state (including those practicing in New York City).

The New York City Administrative Code Section 28-211.1.2 permits the
New York City Department of Buildings to conduct an administrative
hearing to determine whether an architect "knowingly or negligently"
made a false statement. If an architect is found by the Department of
Buildings to have "knowingly or negligently" made a false statement,
the Department of Buildings may refuse to accept any documents from
the architect, thereby restricting the architect's ability to practice
in New York City. The process utilized by the Department of Buildings
eliminates the procedural rights that licensed professionals,
including licensed architects, have under the Education Law, which
include a review of the allegations by a member of the licensed
profession. The oath hearing set forth in New York City Administrative
Code Section 28-211.1.2 does not provide for peer review, and allows
the Commissioner of the New York City Department of Buildings sole
discretion to determine whether an architect should be prevented from
practicing within a certain jurisdiction of the State of New York (New
York City), with inadequate means of appeal.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
