S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 2418 2017-2018 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E January 13, 2017 ___________ Introduced by Sen. MARCELLINO -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Codes AN ACT to amend the civil rights law, in relation to privacy of elec- tronic fare and toll records THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Statement of legislative intent. The legislature finds and declares that public entities increasingly are establishing electronic toll and electronic fare payment systems, which have the potential for great convenience to the general public. E-Z Pass, for example, allows motorists to have toll charges automatically deducted from pre-establ- ished accounts. Programs such as these have proven popular with consum- ers. But some consumers, public officials and public entities have raised legitimate questions about the extent to which records of indi- vidual travel created by such electronic toll and fare programs should be disclosed, and under what circumstances. This bill establishes reasonable, uniform provisions for maintaining the confidentiality of such records, while at the same time authorizing disclosure in cases of legitimate law enforcement need. § 2. The civil rights law is amended by adding a new section 50-f to read as follows: § 50-F. PRIVACY OF ELECTRONIC TOLL AND FARE RECORDS. 1. DEFINITIONS. AS USED IN THIS SECTION: A. "ELECTRONIC TOLL INFORMATION" SHALL MEAN RECORDS CREATED OR MAIN- TAINED BY A PUBLIC ENTITY OR BY A CONTRACTOR ON BEHALF OF A PUBLIC ENTI- TY CONCERNING A MOTORIST OR MOTOR VEHICLE REGARDING THE USE OF ANY HIGH- WAY, BRIDGE, TUNNEL OR OTHER THOROUGHFARE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO E-Z PASS RECORDS, WHICH CONTAIN INFORMATION SUCH AS (BUT NOT LIMITED TO) THE NAME AND ADDRESS OF THE REGISTERED VEHICLE OWNER OR ACCOUNT HOLDER, A DESCRIPTION AND/OR LICENSE PLATE NUMBER OF THE VEHICLE, THE DATE, TIME AND LOCATION OF THE PASSAGE OF A VEHICLE THROUGH A TOLL COLLECTION EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
