BILL NUMBER:S4953

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the labor law, in relation to failure to
pay statutory inspection fees

Purpose of the Bill: This bill would restructure the timing and fee
amount for the additional fees charged when inspections fees for boilers
and places of assembly are not paid in a timely manner.

Summary of Provisions:

Section 1 of the bill amends Labor Law § 216 to reduce the additional
fees due for late payment of inspection fees for boilers and places of
assembly so that an additional fee equal to the invoice would be paid
only if the invoice were paid after 45 days from the date of the
invoice, an additional fee of two times the invoice would be paid if the
invoice were paid after 60 days from the date of the invoice and an
additional fee of three times the invoice amount if the invoice were
paid after 180 days of the date of the invoice.

Section 2 of the bill provides that the bill would be effective 90 days
after becoming law.

Existing Law: Labor Law § 216 requires owners and lessees of boilers to
pay an additional fee equal to three times the amount of the inspection
fee for boilers and places of assembly if the inspection fee is not paid
within thirty days of the date of inspection.

Prior Legislative History: This is a new bill.

Statement in Support: Labor Law § 204 governs inspections of boilers.
Owners and lessees of boilers including local municipalities are subject
to inspections of particular types of boilers annually or biannually,
depending on the type of inspection. Labor Law § 473 governs inspections
of places of public assembly. Before use, areas of public assembly must
file plans that are inspected by the Department of Labor. Additional
inspections for areas of public assembly may be performed not more than
twice a year after the initial inspection, if circumstances warrant such
an inspection. The Labor Law requires that regulated entities pay a fee
for such inspections. The Labor Law also provides for additional fees in
the event the inspection fee is not paid in a timely manner.

This bill would provide relief for regulated entities by providing for a
longer grace period for the payment of fees and by lowering the addi-
tional fees charged for late payment of inspection fees associated with
the inspection of boilers.

Fiscal Implications: This bill would result in reduced payments to the
general fund.

Effective Date: This bill would take effect 90 days after it becomes
law.
