BILL NUMBER:S7467

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the navigation law, in relation to the base pilotage tariffs at
Sandy Hook, Sands Point and Execution Rocks

PURPOSE:
Increases the base pilotage tariffs at Sandy Hook, Sands Point and
Execution Rocks.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This legislation amends Section 88 of the Navigation Law to adjust the
pilotage tariff table over a five year period commencing January
1, 2013. As agreed to by the shipping industry, there is a three
percent rate increase in 2013, two percent in 2014, three percent in
2015, a two percent increase in 2016 and a two percent increase in
2017.

Section 1 amends item (A) of subclause 1 of clause (ii) of
subparagraph 1 of paragraph (b) of subdivision 4 of section 88 of the
navigation law, as amended by chapter 537 of the laws of 2012. It
establishes five new tariff tables, the first is effective January
1, 2013.
Each subsequent table replaces its predecessor effective a year
thereafter.

Section 2 provides that the bill takes effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:
Adjusting the tariff schedule recognizes the change in the nature of
vessels utilizing the Port. When the schedule was established 29
years ago, vessel size was well within the established limits.
However, during that time, vessels have doubled in size and can
accommodate much more cargo. Therefore, the total number of ships has
decreased while total tonnage and value of cargo has increased.
Schedule adjustments are necessary to compensate for the resulting
decreased revenue stream thereby enabling the Pilots to maintain
their historically exemplary level of service.

The increase is necessary to allow the Sandy Hook pilots to expand
educational programs for pilots, fund the cost of newly added
employees and increased operational expenses such as insurance and
fuel, and to make necessary capital improvements to the pilot base.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
