BILL NUMBER:S4935

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the parks, recreation and historic
preservation law, in relation to waiving pavilion rental fees for
recognized veterans' organizations

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Waives the pavilion rental fees for
recognized veterans' organizations at NY State Parks

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 permits any recognized veterans' organization to rent any
pavilion at state parks, other state recreational facilities and
historic sites, without the payment of any fees or charges.

Section 2 contains the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: We have no greater obligation than to honor and thank
our veterans for their service to our nation, whether in times of
peace or in times of war. Given the personal sacrifices our veterans
have made, waiving the rental fee for Veteran's organization to
utilize state parks pavilions is small gesture for the work they do
every day protecting and securing our freedoms.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

S.5885 of 2009/2010 S.4675 of 2011/2012

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Effective immediately.
