Sponsor Memo

BILL NUMBER:S6588

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend chapter 383 of the laws of 1991, relating to the incorporation
of the New York Zoological Society, in relation to extending the
expiration date of free one day admission to the zoological park

PURPOSE:
The purpose of this bill is to extend the expiration date of
the one day free admission policy of the zoological park of the New
York Zoological Society (the Bronx Zoo) for an additional three years.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1: Amends section 3 of Chapter 383 of the Laws of 1991, that
relates to the incorporation of the New York Zoological Society, to
continue to reserve at least one day in each week as a free admission
day for the general public, subject to such rules and regulations as
the corporation may prescribe.

EXISTING LAW:
Chapter 49 of the Laws of 2009 expires July 1, 2012.

JUSTIFICATION:
This legislation was initially signed into law as
Chapter 77 of the Laws of 2000. This bill extends the provisions of
Chapter 77 which extends the one-day free admission policy per week
for another three years. The Zoo will be able to maintain a viable
fiscal position and provide the necessary means required to operate
this world class facility. In addition, the Zoo will be able to
maintain its educational programs for school children and continue to
provide its patrons with one free admission day. Zoo attendance over
the last three years, while the one-day free admission was in effect,
has increased overall.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately and shall expire
July 1, 2015.
