BILL NUMBER:S173

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the state finance law, in relation to
prohibiting the transfer of unexpended moneys from funds receiving
moneys from a dedicated fee into any other fund

PURPOSE: To prevent the transfer of funds from accounts that are
specifically supported with a dedicated fee.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one amends the state finance law by
adding a new section stating that fees collected to support a specific
fund will only be expended for that specific purpose.

Section two - effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Various funds exist in the state budget to support
specific activities of all New Yorkers such as land conservation,
fishing and hunting and maintenance of trails throughout the state.
Fees supporting such funds are paid with the understanding that the
state will dedicate the total revenues derived from these fees to the
payment of expenses directly related to the specific activity for
which the fees were collected.
