BILL NUMBER:S4912

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to amend the public authorities law, in relation to the powers of
the canal corporation

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Allows canal corporation to waive fee for work permit for project on
canal lands if it adds value to lands at no cost to canal corporation or
state.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Adds a new paragraph (p) to Section 1 of subdivision 7 of section 382 of
the public authorities law, as amended by chapter 138 of the laws of
1997.

JUSTIFICATION:
This bill is being requested because of several eagle scouts being
required to pay a $25 work permit fee for their projects on canal
corporation lands. Currently, the Public Authorities Law disallows any
waiver, even for individuals and groups involved in the Canal Clean Up
Days. This amendment to the law would waive any fee for a work permit
which the canal corporation has the power to issue if in its discretion
the project which is subject to a work permit would add value to canal
lands without any cost to the canal corporation or the state.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.6840 of 2007/2008
S.4888 of 2009/2010

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
