Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule
In accordance with the Stipulation of Settlement in MTBOT v. City of New York, 08 Civ. 7837 PAC, dated December 1, 2012, TLC proposes an amended rule to extend by one year the vehicle retirement dates of medallion taxicabs with retirement dates from April 1, 2013 through the Official Taxi Vehicle Activation Date, or through December 1, 2013, whichever is earlier.
As the rulemaking hearing and Commission vote will not take place until April 18, 2013, the TLC has issued an industry notice extending the scheduled retirement dates to May 30, 2013 of medallion taxicabs set to retire from April 1, 2013 through May 29, 2013.
The Commission’s authority for this rules change is found in section 2303 of the New York City Charter and section 19-503 of the New York City Administrative Code.
