According to the bill, New York City's information technology and communications departments will be responsible for the implementation of the work, in addition to the possibility of high penalties for violators. If the offender violates the rules many times in the same day, he or she may be fined $1,000 each time or $10,000 for each share of a person's data.
Next, the bill will hold some committee hearings before a broader parliamentary vote.
"As a city, we have the opportunity to take the lead in this matter," New York City Councillor Justin Brannan said in a statement. If the federal government does not prohibit this dangerous violation of people's privacy, then we must do so. I look forward to working with my colleagues to pass this bill into law so that we can convey the message that such intrusive, unanimous business practices are not feasible in New York.
