Please call NYS Governor Spitzer Toll Free at 800-319-3403 and urge him to sign Assembly Bill A6247 – banning fliers, pamphlets, handbills and circulars on private property. “All these unsolicited ads add up to litter and sanitation tickets”!
As Governor Eliot Spitzer is set to consider Assembly bill 6247 and Senate bill 3420-A, which passed both houses of the legislature, Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) has launched a campaign asking New Yorkers to call the Governor’s office urging him to sign the bill into law.
“The proliferation of unsolicited circulars and advertising materials has gotten completely out of hand. There is an avalanche of these printed items on front doorsteps that has become a menace for homeowners. There are several deliveries of these bagged circulars and just keeping ahead of the litter they create has become burdensome.
“On private property, a homeowner should have the right to refuse the material, and this bill returns that right. Call the Governor toll free at (800) 319-3403 and ask him to sign A6247 because ‘We don’t want any more tickets.’”
(Note: The bill would not affect or include newspapers or political material.)
