BILL NUMBER:S6197 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to the powers and duties of notaries public PURPOSE: To charge inmates of a state correctional facility a fee of two dollars for any service performed by a notary public. SUMMARY: Section 1 adds Section 136-a to Article 6 of the executive law to provide a fee of two dollars be charged for the services outlined in Section 136 of the same article when performed for an inmate of a correctional facility. Section 2 provides the enacting clause. JUSTIFICATION: Each year, thousands of lawsuits are filed by inmates in New York each year with a large percentage of them being dismissed by the courts. In New York, as much as 20% of the Attorney General's budget has been spent on prisoner lawsuits. This costly, unreasonable system, bogs down our courts and slows justice.
