BILL NUMBER:S1138

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the public lands law, in relation to certain state-leased or
state-owned lands

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Authorizes payment of additional state aid for certain state-leased or
state-owned lands.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 - amends section 19-a of the public lands law by adding a
new subdivision 2-b.

Section 2 is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
This legislation which was requested by the City of Albany would
provide for payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT). Currently, nearly 60%
of the City is tax-exempt, largely as a result of State ownership.
This legislation proposes a PILOT payment of 1.75% of the present
value of the Harriman Campus, an amount that would be approximately
$11.7 million annually for eight years. The bill provides that this
amount would be paid annually for ten years and would decrease sooner
if the Harriman Campus is privatized.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2011/12 - A.10022/S.7201 Remained in Senate Committee on
Investigations and Government Operations and Assembly
Committee on Real Property Taxation

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
