New parking placard policies for the executive branch and Legislature

New parking placard policies for the executive branch and Legislature

In response to State Inspector General Ellen Biben finding systemic problems with how parking placards were distributed and how they were used by some state employees, Governor Cuomo set new rigorous new policies for state issued parking placards.

Currently, the state distributes two types of parking placards. One says "police" in all capital letters, the other says "official business."

The new parking placard policies for the executive branch and Legislature provide that:

1. State officials are required to fill out a form before receiving the placard indicating why the placard is needed and what vehicle it will be used in.


2. State officials are required to sign a certification acknowledging the proper use of a placard.

3. The Executive Chamber is recalling all outstanding "Police" placards so they can be redistributed to police personnel only.

4. State officials without police powers will be issued "Official Business" placards.

5.The State Police will review and distribute all "Police" placards.

6. The Governor's Office of Public Safety will review and distribute all "Official Business" placards.

7. Agencies will review requests by employees to ensure that their duties and responsibilities would require the use of a placard.

8. Complaints of improper use of "Police" placards will be handled by State Police.

9. Complaints of improper use of "Official Business" placards will be handled by the Inspector General's office. 

10. An employee who misuses the placard could face disciplinary action.
