TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the penal law, in relation to soliciting or providing support for an act of terrorism

PURPOSE: This legislation increases the penalties for soliciting or providing support for an act of terrorism in the first, second and third degree.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section One - amends Section 490.10 and 490.15 of the penal law, as added by chapter 300 of the laws of 2001 increasing the penalty of soliciting or providing support for an act of terrorism to third degree when the intent that material support or resources will be used, in whole or in part, to plan, prepare, carry out or aid in either an act of terrorism or the concealment of, or an escape from an act of terrorism, he or she raises, solicits, collects or provides material support or resources.

Section One - increases the penalty for soliciting or providing support for an act of terrorism in the third degree a class D felony.

Section One - defines providing support for an act of terrorism in the second degree as a person who commits soliciting or providing support for an act of terrorism and the total value of material support or resources is in any amount and soliciting or providing involves the use of a credit card.

Section One - defines the penalty for soliciting or providing support for an act of terrorism in the second degree as a class C felony.

Section One - defines soliciting or providing support for an act of terrorism in the first degree as when a when he or she commits the crime of soliciting or providing support for an act of terrorism or the total value of material support or resources exceeds fives thousand dollars.

Section One - defines the penalty for soliciting and providing support for an act of terrorism in the first degree as a class B felony.

Section Two - this act shall take effect on the first November next succeeding the date on which it shall have become law.

JUSTIFICATION: On April 8, 2011, Senator Greg Ball - Chairman of the committee on Veterans, Homeland Security and Military affairs held a hearing on the opportunities to improve New York State's Homeland Security Operations and how far New York State has come since September 11, 2001. One of the primary issues that was addressed during the hearing was the ability for terrorist organizations to obtain funds through credit card fraud and money laundering. Another startling conclusion made, was the lack of enforcement and lean penalties when criminals were charged.

This legislation will serve as a strong message to criminals providing support to terrorists. By increasing the penalties for each degree of

credit card fraud, New York State will show its serious commitment to cutting the purse of terrorists.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 5/3/11- S.5270, Referred to Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs 6/1/11- S.5270, Passed Senate 2/6/12S.5270, Passed Senate 6/20/13- S.3886, Passed Senate
