BILL NUMBER:S5045

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to
advertising on school athletic facilities

PURPOSE:

This legislation would allow boards of education to enter into
contracts for the sale or lease of advertising space on school
athletic facilities including, but not limited to athletic courts or
fields and surrounding fences or other related buildings or
structures.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill would allow boards of education to enter into
contracts for the sale of advertising space on school athletic
facilities owned or leased by the school district. This legislation
goes on to state that certain ads shall be prohibited, and gives the
commissioner the ability to deem certain products or services as
inappropriate to be advertised. All advertisements shall require the
prior approval of the local board of education. Revenue will be
retained by the school district. This legislation provides an
exemption for cities with a population of one million or more.

Section 2 is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

At a time when our school districts are facing unprecedented cuts in
education funding we need to look at alternative means for bringing in
revenues. Selling or leasing advertising space is a creative way to
allow school districts to raise revenue to support important
scholastic activities. The state of New York is known fox placing
mandates on schools, but this bill is optional and at the decision of
each individual school district to decide.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect on the sixtieth day after it shall have
become a law. Effective immediately, the addition, amendment and/or
repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for the implementation of
this act on its effective date are authorized and directed to be made
and completed on or before such effective date.
