BILL NUMBER:S5646

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 618 of the laws of 1998,
amending the general municipal law and the education law relating to
disposal of surplus computer equipment by political subdivisions, in
relation to the effectiveness thereof; and to repeal subdivision 10 of
section 318 of the education law relating to reporting on the
donations of surplus computers

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The purpose of this bill is to
provide a three year extender for computer donation provisions.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill extends for three years
until July 1, 2016 chapter 618 of the laws of 1998 about donation of
computer equipment.

JUSTIFICATION: The enactment of chapter 618 of the laws of 1998 and
the extension granted in 2001, 2004, 2007, and 2010 enabled political
subdivisions to donate surplus computer equipment through SED's
C.R.E.A.T.E. Programs (5318 of the Education law). To date, hundreds
of computers have been donated to local schools, libraries and other
not-for-profit organizations. This bill will extend this law and allow
local governments to continue to dispose of surplus computer equipment
in a fair and equitable manner.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: The Legislature has previously extended
this provision.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately, with a three-year sunset provision.
