BILL NUMBER:S2583 REVISED MEMO 03/06/2014

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the penal law, in relation to the
unlawful dissemination of a security body scan

PURPOSE:

This legislation will make it a misdemeanor to unlawfully disseminate
security body scan images.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section One - amends the penal law by adding a new section 250.70 to
define a person guilty of unlawful dissemination of a body scan, when
or she, without the permission of the person of whom the scan was
made, knowingly disseminates a body scan taken for legal security
purposes, or any image or images derived from such scan to any person
who has not been authorized to receive the scan pursuant to state or
federal statues or regulates.

Section One - classifies unlawful dissemination of a security body
scan a class A misdemeanor.

Section Two - Sets forth the active date of the first of November next
succeeding the date on which it shall have become law.

JUSTIFICATION:

While understanding the need to protect our passengers and airports,
this legislation secures the privacy of men, women and children who
travel through the airports in the State of New York. Unfortunately,
there will be employees who abuse the system and people's trust that
they will perform their jobs in a professional, ethical fashion.

This bill will provide the State of New York with the ability to
criminally prosecute those employees who take advantage of their
position of authority.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

5/03/11- S.5296 - Referred to Codes
5/21/12- S.5296 - Passed Senate
5/22/13- S.2583 - Passed Senate

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This first of November next succeeding the date on which it shall have
become law.
