BILL NUMBER:S1138A

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. 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: 2012: A.10022/S.7201

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately
