Senate Passes 9th District Measure Allowing Cancellation of Diminutive municipal Charges and Fees

Legislation sponsored by Senator Christopher J. Connors that would expand the power of a municipality to cancel a delinquent charge or fee owed to it, provided that the fee was less than $10, was unanimously approved by the full Senate.  Assemblyman Brian E. Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne C. Gove will be introducing the Assembly companion bill at the next quorum of their respective House.

“This is a common-sense proposal that would alleviate unnecessary burdens placed on municipalities that are required to procure these minimal debts which, in most cases, are not worth the time and costs involved,” said Senator Connors.  “In these difficult budgetary times most municipalities, especially those with small workforces, don’t have the resources to spend an inordinate amount of time trying to track down someone for the five dollars they are delinquent in their sewer bill.  Our Delegation is sponsoring this legislation since this issue tends to have a greater impact on smaller municipalities with fewer local employees.”

The Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee favorably released legislation (A-330) introduced by Senator Christopher J. Connors, Assemblyman Brian E. Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne C. Gove that would create the offense of financial exploitation of the elderly.

“This measure targets those individuals who prey on elderly persons age 60 and above who are suffering from a mental disease or condition rendering them incapable of making financial decisions on their own,” said Senator Connors. “Too often, persons use the trust they have gained from an elderly person left vulnerable from their unfortunate circumstances to steal through means of fraud, false promises, extortion or even intimidation. Under our legislation, stiffer penalties would be established for despicable crimes of this nature involving lesser amounts of money.”
