A08290 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A8290B
 
SPONSOR: Gottfried
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the navigation law, in relation to prohibiting vessels from operating, anchoring or mooring in the naviga- ble waters of the state while operating a digital billboard board   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill adds a new Section 43-a to the Navigation Law to prohibit vessels from operating, anchoring, or mooring in the navigable waters of the state while operating a digital billboard or another type of bill- board that uses flashing, intermittent or moving lights. The bill would not limit the ability of local governments to regulate the operation of vessels within 1500 feet off their shore pursuant to section 46a of the Navigation Law, and would further allow localities to adopt local laws to expressly restrict or prohibit the use of outdoor advertising signage on vessels within 1500 feet of their shore, or expressly authorize vessels to operate a digital billboard or another type of billboard that uses flashing, intermittent or moving lights within 1500 feet of their shore. A violation of the bill would be punishable by a civil penalty of $1,500 for the first violation and $5,000 for all subsequent violations.   DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORIGINAL AND AMENDED VERSION (IF APPLICABLE): The amended version removes criminal penalties for violations of this provision.   JUSTIFICATION: Vessels operating in the navigable waters of the state that are equipped with digital billboards are a potential public nuisance and public safe- ty hazard. They can be distracting to fellow boaters, and mar the other- wise beautiful environment of our local waterways with unwanted adver- tisements. This bill would prohibit vessels from operating, anchoring, or mooring in the navigable waters of the state while operating a digital bill- board or another type of billboard that uses flashing, intermittent, or moving lights. Local governments would, at local option, be allowed to authorize vessels to be equipped with these bill- boards within 1,500 feet from their shores.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.

        AN ACT to amend the navigation law, in relation to  prohibiting  vessels
          from  operating,  anchoring  or mooring in the navigable waters of the
          state while operating a digital billboard board
 
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section  1. The navigation law is amended by adding a new section 43-a
     2  to read as follows:
     3    § 43-a. Use of digital billboards. 1. All vessels shall be  prohibited
     4  from  operating,  anchoring  or  mooring  in the navigable waters of the
     5  state while operating a digital billboard or  other  type  of  billboard
     6  that uses flashing, intermittent or moving lights.
     7    2.  As used in this section, the term "digital billboard" shall mean a
     8  one or multi-sided outdoor advertising sign that displays digital images
     9  using light-emitting diode technology or any  such  similar  technology,
    10  unless exclusively used to identify the vessel.
    11    3.  This  section shall not be construed to limit any authority deleg-
    12  ated to a city, village or town pursuant to section forty-six-a of  this
    13  part.  A  city, village or town may, by local law, expressly restrict or
    14  prohibit the use of outdoor advertising signage on  vessels  within  one
    15  thousand  five  hundred feet of its shore or expressly authorize vessels
    16  to operate a digital billboard or other  type  of  billboard  that  uses
    17  flashing, intermittent or moving lights within one thousand five hundred
    18  feet of its shore.
    19    4. A violation of the provisions of this section shall be subject to a
    20  civil  penalty of one thousand dollars for the first violation, and five
    21  thousand dollars for all subsequent violations.
    22    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD11056-05-9
