Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule
On May 11, 2016, Chapter 43 of Title 15 of the Rules of the City of New York, establishing a penalty schedule for violations of the Air Code, took effect. It has since been discovered that there is an error in the penalty schedule.
Administrative Code Section 24-169, which prohibits the use, purchase, sale, offer, storage or transport of fuel with excess sulfur content, is listed in the penalty schedule with the incorrect subdivision. The schedule should include § 24-169(a) and § 24-169(b) but not § 24-169(c), which is not a charging section. The amounts of the penalties are set forth correctly, and remain unchanged.
