of White Plains to enact such a tax, for a three year period expiring

JUSTIFICATION:
The city of White Plains seeks to continue the authority granted in 2009
to impose a 3% daily room occupancy tax upon any hotel, motel, or simi-
lar place in the city. Such revenues serve as an alternative to the real
property tax.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

the fiscal year ending June 30, 2011 and anticipates similar revenues
for the fiscal years ending June 30, 2012 and 2013, respectively. There
is no fiscal impact to New York State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
