 AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to the  mainte-
   nance of records of catalytic converters
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

   Section 1. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 5  of  section  415-a  of  the
 vehicle  and traffic law, as amended by chapter 180 of the laws of 2006,
 is amended and a new paragraph (c) is added to read as follows:
   (a) Any records required by this section shall apply only to  vehicles
 or parts of vehicles for which a certificate of title has been issued by
 the  commissioner  or which would be eligible to have such a certificate
 of title issued. Every person required to be registered pursuant to this
 section shall maintain a record of all  motor  vehicles,  trailers,  and
 major component parts thereof, coming into his OR HER possession togeth-
 er  with  a record of the disposition of any such motor vehicle, trailer
 or part thereof and the date such motor vehicle, trailer or part thereof
 is received and shall maintain proof of ownership for any motor vehicle,
 trailer or major component part thereof while in his OR HER  possession.
 For the purposes of this article an inflatable restraint system shall be
 a major component part AND A CATALYTIC CONVERTER SHALL BE A MAJOR COMPO-
 NENT  PART.    Such  records  shall  be  maintained in a manner and form
 prescribed by the commissioner. The  commissioner  may,  by  regulation,
 exempt  vehicles  or  major  component  parts  of vehicles from all or a
 portion of the record keeping requirements based upon  the  age  of  the
 vehicle  if the commissioner deems that such record keeping requirements
 would not further the purposes of the  motor  vehicle  theft  prevention
 program established by section two hundred twenty-three of this chapter.
 Upon  request  of  an agent of the commissioner or of any police officer
 and during his OR HER  regular  and  usual  business  hours,  a  vehicle
 dismantler  shall  produce  such records and permit said agent or police
 officer to examine them and any vehicles or parts of vehicles which  are
 subject to the record keeping requirements of this section and which are
 on the premises. IN ADDITION, THE COMMISSIONER SHALL REQUIRE EVERY VEHI-
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
