BILL NUMBER:S3834

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the New York state urban development corporation act, in
relation to the economic development fund

PURPOSE:
This bill would create new purposes for the economic development fund to
help fund Biosciences curriculum development and workforce training, as
well as facility improvement in accordance with federal regulations.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill would amend Subdivision 1 of section 16-m of chapter 174 of
the laws of 1968, constituting the New York state urban development
corporation act, by adding new paragraphs to provide funds to
biosciences research institutions and organizations on a competitive
basis to develop curriculum and administer bioscience specific training
programs for current and prospective industry employees. The bill would
also provide assistance to businesses that conduct basic, applied or
translational research that leads to the development of products that
improve human health or agriculture and that require approval by the
federal food and drug administration based on compliance with federal
Good Manufacturing Practice Regulations.

JUSTIFICATION:
Bioscience-based industries such as those manufacturing medical devices
hold an important place in clusters of the knowledge- based economy in
New York State. In roundtable discussions hosted by the Task Force on
University-Industry Cooperation and the Commission on Science and
Technology, participants called for new legislative initiatives that
benefit the biosciences industry. It was noted that the biosciences are
and are likely to continue to be very important in New York State, and
that New York continues to be a leader in attracting research for
biosciences research.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-10: S.1147; 2007-08: S.7840

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately, with provisions.
