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.
The Bill can be found at the following link: http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201720180AB503.
