BILL NUMBER:S6471

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the county law, in relation to permit-
ting Onondaga county to collaborate with other counties with respect to
operating and maintaining a foreign trade zone

PURPOSE: To permit Onondaga County to collaborate with other counties
with respect to operating and maintaining a foreign trade zone.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Amends subdivision 23 of section 224 of county law to desig-
nate a service area to include adjacent counties of Cayuga, Oswego and
Madison which are counties located adjacent to the Syracuse Hancock
International Airport.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently, Onondaga County is authorized under subdivi-
sion 23 section 24 of county law to operate a Foreign Trade Zone within
Onondaga County. The Onondaga County legislature has requested that this
Foreign Trade Zone Service Area be expanded to include areas adjacent to
the Airport. The Foreign Trade Zone regulations define adjacency to be
areas located within sixty miles or ninety minutes driving time of a
United States Customs and Boarder Protection Port of Entry. Imports and
exports are a major source of growth for Central New York. This expan-
sion would permit further regional economic development as businesses
will be incentivized to locate within this region, and current busi-
nesses will be better able to expand their distribution area and
increase international trade.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
