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

  Section  1.  Section 202-b of the vehicle and traffic law, as added by
chapter 190 of the laws of 1990, is amended to read as follows:
  S 202-b. Penalties for submission of dishonored checks AND CREDIT CARD
PAYMENTS. A thirty-five dollar penalty  fee  shall  be  charged  to  any
person who has submitted a check to the commissioner or his or her agent
as  payment for any license, permit or registration or any other type of
fee for any type of transaction as required by  this  chapter  and  such
check  has  been  dishonored.  Such  thirty-five dollar penalty shall be
added to the amount due to the commissioner. In  addition,  any  or  all
licenses, permits or registrations issued in the name of such person may
be  suspended  WHERE SUCH PERSON'S CHECK HAS BEEN DISHONORED, OR, IN THE
CASE OF A CREDIT CARD PAYMENT, WHERE THE PAYMENT IS CONTESTED AND IS NOT
HONORED BY THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY and, if a suspension has been issued,
any other transaction in the name of such person  with  this  department
may  be  prohibited  until  full  satisfaction  of the amount due to the
commissioner and, IN THE CASE OF A  DISHONORED  CHECK,  the  thirty-five
dollar penalty fee is paid to the commissioner. No such suspension shall
be  issued  until thirty days after notification that the check has been
dishonored OR THE CREDIT CARD PAYMENT HAS NOT BEEN HONORED BY THE CREDIT
CARD COMPANY is mailed to such person. If satisfaction  is  made  within
thirty days from the date of mailing of such notification, no suspension
shall be issued.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred twentieth day after
it  shall  have become a law and shall apply to all payments received on
or after such date.
