URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT
AB 503 (Lackey)
If this bill passes it would be very expensive for parking agencies and severely impact administration.
- Parking Agencies would not be able to file an itemization of parking penalties with the DMV unless the Agency provides a 12-month payment plan option to indigent persons. Under the bill, agencies would only be able to charge a $5 fee for participation in the plan.
- Additionally, Agencies would have to provide a sliding scale for indigent persons. A person may demonstrate they are indigent by providing proof of income from a paystub, a bank statement, rent or even grocery receipts.
Currently the Bill is on suspense and in possession of the Assembly Appropriations Committee. A hearing is set for May 26, 2017. We encourage you to actively oppose this bill ASAP by emailing Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez who is the Chairperson of this Committee:
