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.
