Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning Limitations On The Imposition Of Fines By State Agencies For Minor Violations, And, In Connection Therewith, Defining A Minor Violation As An Inspection-Related Or Paperwork Violation Of State Law Or State Agency Rule That Does Not Harm Or Threaten Public Health Or Safety And Requiring A State Agency To Provide A Violator With Notice And An Opportunity To Cure A Minor Violation Before Imposing A Fine.

The bill limits the discretion of a state executive branch agency to impose a fine for a minor violation of a state law or a state agency rule by prohibiting an agency from:

  • Imposing a fine for a minor violation that is an inspection-related violation if the violator made a reasonable good faith effort to comply with the state law or state agency rule that it violated unless:
    • The state agency provides written notice of the violation to the violator within 20 business days of the date of the inspection; and
    • The violator fails to remedy the violation within 20 business days of receiving the notice.
  • Imposing a fine for a minor violation that is a paperwork violation unless:
    • The state agency provides written notice of the violation to the violator within 90 business days after the violator committed the violation by missing a filing deadline or filing an erroneous form or other filing; and
    • The violator fails to remedy the violation within 90 business days of receiving the notice of the violation.
