Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

Local Law 197 of 2017 amended the New York City Administrative Code to require that second-hand automobile dealers provide certain financing disclosures and to create an automobile contract cancellation option that may be used by consumers of second-hand automobiles. 

Local Law 198 of 2017 amended the New York City Administrative Code to require second-hand automobile dealers post and distribute a bill of rights to consumers. 

To implement Local Laws 197 and 198, the Department proposes to amend Section 6-19 of Subchapter B of Title 6 of the Rules of the City of New York, which establishes fixed penalties for the violations of the laws and rules related to secondhand automobile dealers. 

DCA’s authority for these rule is found in Sections 1043, 2203(c), 2203(f), and 2203(h)(1) of the City Charter, Sections 20-104(e) and 20-275.1 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York, Section 10 of Local Law 197 of 2017, and Section 3 of Local Law 198 of 2017.

An analysis of this proposed rule as described in Section 1043(d) of the New York City Charter was not performed because it falls under the exception in Section 1043(d)(4)(ii).
