Introduced  by  Sen. HUNTLEY -- read twice and ordered printed, and when

AN ACT to amend the general business law, in relation  to  enacting  the
  locksmith licensing act of 2012

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings.  Locksmiths  operate  in  the  public
trust  to secure and protect property and persons and have the knowledge
and tools to bypass or neutralize security devices.  Existing  laws  and
regulations do not adequately protect citizens from the unscrupulous use
and  abuse  of the tools and knowledge of the locksmithing profession by
the untrained person or from those who have criminal  intent.  In  addi-
tion, disreputable locksmiths and those who falsely represent themselves
to be locksmiths have a negative effect on the business of honest, hard-
working  locksmiths by generating public ill will towards the profession
as a whole. In order to protect both reputable locksmiths and the public
of this state from the abuse and misuse of locksmithing supplies,  manu-
als,  or  equipment, locksmiths should be licensed and regulated by this
state.
  S 2. The general business law is amended by adding a new  article  6-E
to read as follows:
                               ARTICLE 6-E
                   THE LOCKSMITH LICENSING ACT OF 2012
SECTION 69-AA. SHORT TITLE.
        69-BB. DEFINITIONS.
        69-CC. LOCKSMITH ADVISORY BOARD.
        69-DD. PROMULGATION OF REGULATIONS AND STANDARDS.
        69-EE. PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES.
        69-FF. CRIMINAL PENALTY.
        69-GG. CIVIL PENALTY.
        69-HH. LICENSURE.
        69-II. QUALIFICATIONS OF APPLICANTS.
        69-JJ. EMPLOYEE REQUIREMENTS.
        69-KK. EXPIRATION AND RENEWAL.

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