BILL NUMBER:S4505

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend public officers law, in relation to making agency payroll
records available

PURPOSE:
To ensure that the names, titles, salaries and public office addresses
of public employees are clearly accessible to the public.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one amends subdivision three of section eighty-seven of the
public officers law to clarify that notwithstanding any other
provision in article six, each agency shall maintain and make
available the records specified in subdivision three.

Section two provides that that this act shall take effect on the
sixtieth day after it shall have become a law.

JUSTIFICATION:
Section 87(3)(b) of FOIL already directs agencies to maintain a
"record setting forth the name, public office address, title and
salary of every officer or employee of the agency." In fact, this
requirement has been in place for more than thirty years. While
agencies have routinely disclosed this information, explicitly
stating that the records must be made available will eliminate any
questions regarding disclosure and ensure that the records are
clearly accessible to the public.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

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