To Amend the General Municipal Law so as to Make it a Mis

demeanor to Disclose Names of Holders of Registered
Bonds or to Permit of the Copying or Listing of Names of
Such Bondholders, Except upon Court Order
STATE OF NEW YORK — EXECUTIVE CHAMBER

Albany, April 15, 1920 To the Senate:

I return herewith, without my approval, Senate bill, Int. No. 235, Printed No. 237, entitled :

“An Act to amend the general municipal law, in relation to

registry of municipal bonds.” Not APPROVED.

This bill seeks to make it a misdemeanor for any clerk of any municipal corporation, or controller, or other officer in whose office the book or books in which bonds are registered and kept, or any deputy or employees in such office, to disclose the names of the holders of such bonds so registered, or any of them, or to authorize or permit any person or persons, other than the officials of the municipal corporation or the State Comptroller's office, to inspect, copy or make a list of such names or any part thereof, except upon an order of the court.

The effect of this bill would be to make criminal upon the taking effect of this bill an act which heretofore was entirely permissible and of very common occurrence, and it provides for its immediate taking effect.

I do not believe that such a statute should take effect immediately. It would be unfair to make a criminal of a person until he had at least a reasonable opportunity to become familiar with the statute.

This act is an amendment to the General Municipal Law of the State, and not an amendment or addition to the Penal Law of the State. If such a law is to be enacted, I believe that it should be put in the Penal Law, where the average person would look for such a statute, and not in the General Municipal Law, where few people would ever look for such a statute. The bill is therefore disapproved.

(Signed) ALFRED E. SMITH.
