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

  Section  1.  Section  396-x  of  the general business law, as added by
chapter 616 of the laws of 1984, is amended to read as follows:
  S 396-x. Gasoline stations; air pumps required. 1. Definition. As used
in this section: "dealer" shall mean any person owning  or  operating  a
premise  or  facility  with  four or more gas dispensing nozzles for the
retail sale of motor fuels for use in motor vehicles.
  2. Any dealer must provide on the premises where motor fuel is sold at
retail for use in motor vehicles  AND  MAKE  AVAILABLE  AT  NO  COST  TO
CUSTOMERS,  a functioning motor driven air compressor capable of inflat-
ing automobile tires [for use by customers], A GAUGE FOR  MEASURING  AIR
PRESSURE,  AND  WATER,  FOR  USE  IN SERVICING ANY MOTOR VEHICLE, during
hours in which such station is open for business.
  3. (A) Wilful failure to comply with the provisions  of  this  section
shall  subject  a dealer to a civil penalty of up to [twenty-five] FIFTY
dollars for each day such failure  occurs.  If  the  failure  to  comply
results  from the breakdown of the air compressor, the failure to repair
within a reasonable time shall constitute wilful conduct.
  (B) THE PROVISIONS OF SUBDIVISION TWO OF THIS SECTION MAY BE  ENFORCED
CONCURRENTLY  BY THE DIRECTOR OF A MUNICIPAL CONSUMER AFFAIRS OFFICE, OR
BY THE TOWN ATTORNEY, CITY CORPORATION COUNSEL, OR OTHER LAWFUL DESIGNEE
