BILL NUMBER:S4887

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to exempting police officers in cities of one million or more from provisions of law requiring the payment of an application fee for appointment as a notary public

PURPOSE:

This bill would allow police officers in cities of one million or more whom in the course of their official duties and responsibilities provide notary public services to the public without receiving remuneration as a result thereof to have the state fee waived for application as a notary

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

This bill amends subdivision 3 of section 131 of the executive law and subdivision 9 of section 131 of the executive law

JUSTIFICATION:

Police officers who, in the course of their duties to the public provide notary services without compensation, should not be held responsible to pay a fee to the state simply to provide a service to the public. It would be a great service to the people of our state if police officers in cities of one million or more, were eligible to apply to become a notary public without being the additional hurdle of an application fee

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

See the bill.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
