Chapter amendment A851 was reported out of the Judicial Committee of the New York State Assembly this morning, without opposition or even discussion. Both Democratic and Republican members of the Committee voted in favor of the bill, which excludes New York State and its municipalities from the new judgment debtor motor vehicle exemption. New York City had advocated for the exclusion, to protect its parking tickets collection process. many bankruptcy practitioners around the state, including myself, have submitted letters in suppport of the bill. A floor vote in the Assembly is expected soon, and a similar bill, S1198 is moving through the State Senate.
