 AN ACT to amend the real property law and  the  state  finance  law,  in
   relation  to  establishing the anti-discrimination in housing fund and
   allocating moneys from fines thereto

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 1 of section 441-c of the real
 property  law, as amended by chapter 131 of the laws of 2020, is amended
 to read as follows:
   (a) The department of state may revoke the license of  a  real  estate
 broker  or  salesman or suspend the same, for such period as the depart-
 ment may deem proper, or in lieu thereof may impose a fine not exceeding
 [one] TWO thousand dollars payable to the department of state,  PROVIDED
 THAT FIFTY PERCENT OF ALL MONEYS RECEIVED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE FOR
 SUCH  FINES  SHALL BE PAYABLE TO THE ANTI-DISCRIMINATION IN HOUSING FUND
 ESTABLISHED PURSUANT TO SECTION EIGHTY-A OF THE STATE FINANCE LAW, or  a
 reprimand  upon  conviction  of  the  licensee  of  a  violation  of any
 provision of this article, or for a material misstatement in the  appli-
 cation for such license, or if such licensee has been guilty of fraud or
 fraudulent practices, or for dishonest or misleading advertising, or has
 demonstrated  untrustworthiness  or incompetency to act as a real estate
 broker or salesman, or for a violation of article fifteen of the  execu-
 tive  law  committed  in  his or her capacity as a real estate broker or
 salesman, as the case may be.   In the case  of  a  real  estate  broker
 engaged  in  the  business  of  a tenant relocator, untrustworthiness or
 incompetency shall include engaging in any course of conduct  including,
 but  not  limited  to,  the  interruption or discontinuance of essential
 building service, that interferes with or disturbs the  peace,  comfort,
 repose and quiet enjoyment of a tenant.
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
