BILL NUMBER:S588

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the executive law, in relation to creation of security measures
for the transportation facilities of the metropolitan transportation
authority

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To create security measures that
would prevent persons from causing harm through the damage and
destruction of the critical infrastructure of the Metropolitan
Transportation Authority.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
This legislation authorizes the
Director of Homeland Security to review security measures taken by
the MTA and issue a report on the findings. The Director would be
empowered to mandate compliance with the recommendations of the report.

JUSTIFICATION:
Recent events have exposed the vulnerability of our
mass transit system to potential dangers. In light of these recent
events, it is particularly important to enact the proper security
measures to our transit infrastructure so that they are secured and
do not result in an added burden on law enforcement at best and a
security risk at worst.
