AN  ACT  to  amend  the criminal procedure law, in relation to requiring
  town attorneys to institute proceedings to collect fines,  restitution
  or reparation in towns contained within Nassau county

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

  Section 1. Section 420.20 of the criminal procedure law, as amended by
chapter 290 of the laws of 1980, is amended to read as follows:
§ 420.20 Collection of fines, restitution  or  reparation  imposed  upon
             corporations.
  Where a corporation is sentenced to pay a fine, restitution or repara-
tion,  the  fine,  restitution  or  reparation  must be paid at the time
sentence is imposed.  If the fine, restitution or reparation is  not  so
paid,  it  may  be collected in the same manner as a judgment in a civil
action, and if execution issued upon such judgment be returned  unsatis-
fied  an action may be brought in the name of the people of the state of
New York to procure a judgment sequestering the property of  the  corpo-
ration,  as provided by the business corporation law.  It is the duty of
the attorney general in all criminal proceedings prosecuted by him, and,
in all other proceedings, the county attorney for counties  outside  the
city of New York, OR THE TOWN ATTORNEY FOR ALL PROCEEDINGS PROSECUTED BY
SUCH TOWN ATTORNEY FOR TOWNS CONTAINED WITHIN NASSAU COUNTY, and, in the
city  of  New  York  the corporation counsel of the city of New York, to
institute proceedings to collect such fine, restitution or reparation.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
