BILL NUMBER:S2510B             REVISED 08/24/11

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the penal law, in relation to obstructing governmental duties by means of a bomb, destructive device, explosive, or hazardous substance

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill would amend the penal law by adding a new section 195.17, obstruction of governmental duties by means of a bomb, destructive device, explosive, or hazardous substance. The penalty for this offense would be a class D felony.

JUSTIFICATION: Law enforcement personnel nationwide as well as within New York State have seen a surge in the practice of felons, in particular narco-traffickers, "booby-trapping" the transport and storage places of their illegal goods. Such criminal undertakings pose a serious risk to law enforcement officers and public officials seeking to prevent the spread of illegal contraband in our communities. The enactment of this legislation will increase public safety and protect law enforcement personnel investigating illegal activities by making these wrongdoers more accountable for their actions.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall have become a law.
