BILL NUMBER:S4099A

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the transportation law, in relation to creating a
state infrastructure and economic
development bank; and to amend the state finance law, in relation to
establishing the New York
state infrastructure and economic development bank fund and the New
York state infrastructure guarantee trust fund

PURPOSE:
To create a method of funding highway, rail, transit, intermodal, and
other transportation facilities and projects which produce revenue
to amortize debt while contributing to the connectivity of New York's
transportation system and further the goals such as corridor
completion, economic development, competitiveness in a global
economy, and quality of life.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one of the bill creates a state infrastructure and economic
development bank. Section one authorizes the issuance of bonds.
Section on also establishes the process by which criteria,
priorities, and guidelines for selection of projects are established.

Additionally, Section one establishes a board of directors and
delineates the powers of such board. Section one also outlines the
sources of revenue and authorizes the bank to receive funds from
various sources both public and private entities.

Section 2 creates and establishes the New York State infrastructure
guarantee trust fund in the custody of the comptroller's special fund.

JUSTIFICATION:
The SIB will provide local agencies and private entities low interest
loans to fund important and merit-based rail, road, transit and port
projects.

In 1995, Congress passed and the President signed into law the
National Highway System (NHS) Designation Act. This act established a
state infrastructure bank pilot program that allowed as many as ten
states to allocate part of their Federal apportionment to capitalize
or "seed" an infrastructure bank. The U.S. Department of
Transportation solicited candidates for the pilot program and
selected ten pilot states, including Ohio, Oregon, Arizona, Texas,
California, Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma, south Carolina and Virginia.

In September 1996, Congress passed new legislation that enables the
U.S. Department of Transportation to designate more than ten
qualified states to participate in the infrastructure bank program.

Congress also approved an additional $150 million to capitalize pilot
infrastructure banks following enactment of the legislation.

Many major transportation projects, whether they be highway, transit,
port or intermodal, are often costly and complex to finance. The
state infrastructure and economic development bank would be able to
function like a
revolving loan fund, bond bank. or both. As a revolving loan for an
infrastructure bank could make loans for infrastructure investments
while borrowers replenish the funds as they repay the loans. Once
repaid, these funds can be used by a multitude of project sponsors
for a broad range of projects. As a bond bank, an infrastructure bank
could provide the necessary bonding requirements, letters of credit
or other credit enhancements to support transportation capital
projects.

This bill will provide the necessary framework for a state
infrastructure and economic development bank and in turn leverage
additional funding, encourage economic opportunity and provide the
necessary improvement to the States transit, highway and intermodal
facilities.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the one hundred twentieth day after it
shall have become law.
