BILL NUMBER:S32A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public authorities law, in
relation to requiring cash lanes to be made available at certain toll
barriers

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The provision of electronic
collection of tolls for certain highway bridge and/or tunnel
facilities offers significant benefits to the majority of the motoring
public, including increased customer convenience, road congestion
relief, cost reductions and enhanced traffic management, but it could
result in causing inconvenience, aggravating congestion, increasing
costs and lessening management control for motorists who do not have
electronic toll collection accounts. The proposed legislation would
insure at least one cash facility is available in Cities of 1,000,000
or more to motorists without electronic toll collection accounts.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the one hundred
eightieth day after it shall have become a law, provided, however,
that the commissioner of transportation is authorized and directed to
promulgate any rules and regulations necessary to implement the
provisions of this act on or before such effective date.
