BILL NUMBER:S4870

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 372 of the laws of 2008, amend-
ing the parks, recreation and historic preservation law relating to
establishing the Niagara Falls underground railroad heritage commission,
in relation to the effectiveness thereof

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill will change the date when
Article 43 of the Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation law
expires to allow the Commission to initiate implementation of the
management plan approved pursuant to Article 43 of the Parks, Recreation
and Historic Preservation law.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill amends Section 3 of Chanter
372 of the Laws of 2008 to extend Article 43 of the Parks, Recreation
and Historic Preservation Law to December 31, 2015.

JUSTIFICATION: The Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Commis-
sion was designated as part of New York's system of heritage areas in
2008. The Commission encompasses the City of Niagara Falls, in Niagara
County. The importance of the Commission's mission to develop the herit-
age corridor to function as a destination for both academic research and
tourism is imperative. The Commission's management plan was approved by
the Commissioner of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation on duly
3, 2012. This legislation would give the Niagara Falls Underground Rail-
road Heritage Commission additional time to assist local agencies with
the initial implementation of the management plan.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
