BILL NUMBER:S1410A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law and the state
finance law, in relation to requiring reports by state agencies
relating to certain grants and expenditures made to community based
organizations

PURPOSE: To require an annual report from the division of the budget
that relates to the distribution of funds and grants to
community-based organizations that would create greater transparency
and accountability by the department.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The bill amends the executive law so that the
division of the budget will be required to submit a report to the
legislature by September first of each year relating to the
distribution of funds and grants to community based organizations. The
report will provide a listing of recipients, organized by zip code, of
grants, awards or funds appropriated for services end programs that
are made to organizations which provide services on a local basis.
Additionally, the report must be posted on the division of the budget
website in a manner which is clear and accessible to the public.

JUSTIFICATION: This legislation would create transparency in
departmental spending by providing citizens knowledge of how the
government is spending its budget and where the money is going to. The
additional report that the division of the budget is required to
submit would allow citizens to track the allocation of funds to
community based organizations, which localities the funds are going
to, and the type of services and programs that are being supported.

Concerns raised by Governor Cuomo in his veto of Senate Bill 372 in
2011, including the reporting procedures of the Statewide Financial
System (SFS), are addressed in this new version of the bill.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: First introduced in 2010. A previous version of
the bill (S.372) was vetoed in 2011. 2011-2012: S.6356 passed Senate.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.

AN ACT to amend the executive law and the state finance law, in relation

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Section 164 of the executive law, as amended by chapter 833
of the laws of 1965, is amended to read as follows:
  S 164. Reports by and to the department.   1. Each  department,  other
than the executive department, shall make an annual report to the gover-
nor  and  legislature  on  or  before  the fifteenth day of May, for the
preceding calendar year. It shall contain  such  information  concerning
the department and its several divisions, bureaus, offices, agencies and
institutions,  and  their  activities  and affairs, and such recommenda-
tions, as the head of the department shall deem necessary or proper, and
any matters required by express provision of law to be included in  such
report.  A  department also shall make such other and special reports as
the governor or either house of the legislature may require.  From  time
to time, the head of a department may require from any board, commission
or  other  body  in  the  department  or from any subordinate officer or
employee, division or bureau of the department, or from any  institution
subject  to the supervision of the department, or from any agency of the
department, such reports or information as such head may deem necessary.
Unless expressly authorized by the head of the department,  there  shall
be  hereafter  no  separate report, annual or otherwise, directly to the
legislature or governor by any such board,  commission,  body,  officer,
division,  bureau,  institution  or  agency notwithstanding any existing
provision of law authorizing or requiring such report.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.

  S 2. Section 14 of the state finance law, as amended by chapter 155 of

  S 14. Departmental statements. 1. In addition to the annual department
reports  prescribed by law, the head of each department of the state, on
or before the fifteenth day of October in each year, shall submit to the
governor a statement of the sources,  amounts  and  disposition  of  all
money  received  by  such department, its divisions, bureaus or officers
for the preceding fiscal year other than  money  appropriated  for  such
department  by the legislature or money that was paid by such department
into the treasury. Such statement shall include  a  description  of  the
nature  and  the amount of each fund, if any, then under the supervision
or control of such department or the head thereof or  under  the  super-
vision  or  control  of any division, bureau, commission, board or other
organization therein or under the supervision or control of the head  or
any  other officer of such division, bureau, commission, board or organ-
ization, which was derived from any source whether or not  deposited  in
the  treasury,  a  citation  of  the statute authorizing the creation or
establishment of each such  fund  and  the  nature  and  amount  of  any
payments  made  therefrom during the preceding fiscal year. The director
of the budget in the executive department shall make rules, which  shall
be  approved  by  the governor, regulating the form and contents of such
statements. Copies of such statements shall be simultaneously  furnished
to  the senate finance committee and the assembly ways and means commit-
tee for their information.
  2. The governor, in such form and with such explanation as the  gover-
nor may desire, shall transmit to the legislature, with the annual budg-
et,  a  recapitulation  or  summary of the information contained in such
statements arranged under appropriate headings for each department.  The
provisions  of this section shall not apply to any funds received by the
superintendent of financial services in a fiduciary capacity or  to  the
state  teachers' retirement fund, or any state employees' retirement and
pension fund, but such exemption from the application  of  this  section
shall not affect any other provision of law requiring a report or state-
ment of such funds.
  3.    IN  ADDITION  TO THE ANNUAL REPORT REQUIRED BY THIS SECTION, THE
DIVISION OF THE BUDGET SHALL MAKE A REPORT TO THE LEGISLATURE BY SEPTEM-
BER FIRST OF EACH YEAR RELATING TO DISTRIBUTION OF FUNDS AND  GRANTS  TO
