Legislation sponsored by Senator Christopher J. Connors, Assemblyman Brian E. Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne C. Gove 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 passed by the Assembly Housing and Local Government Committee.

“Given the small monetary amounts involved, this is a common sense proposal aimed at alleviating an unnecessary mandate placed on municipalities, especially those with small workforces,” said Senator Connors. “Essentially, tracking down these diminutive fees are not worth the time and costs involved, but municipalities are still required to so under existing law. In a time of severe budget restraints, municipal resources could certainly be more effectively utilized to address more important matters.”

The State Senate has passed legislation introduced by Senator Christopher J. Connors, Assemblyman Brian E. Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne C. Gove that would end the practice of taxpayers having to cover the costs incurred when banks impose service charges for returned or “bounced” checks written by residents to municipalities and counties.

Under current law, the service fee imposed by a municipality or county cannot exceed $20 per check. The 9th District Delegation’s legislative initiative (S-1042/A-673) would allow municipalities and counties to impose a service charge for the returned check up to, but not to exceed, the usual customary service charge of the commercial banking institution where the municipality deposits its checks.

The delegation established this new number upon learning that a Galloway constituent’s telephone service provider charged her for contacting the District Office as an “out-of-area” call.
