BILL NUMBER:S5665

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 371 of the laws of 1997,
amending the parks, recreation and historic preservation law relating
to establishing the Mohawk Valley heritage corridor commission and
providing for the membership and powers and duties thereof, in
relation to the expiration thereof

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

Extends provisions relating to the Mohawk Valley heritage corridor
commission relating to the expiration thereof

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Amends section 4 of chapter 371 of the laws of 1997,
amending the parks, recreation and historic preservation law relating
to establishing the Mohawk Valley heritage corridor commission and
providing for the membership and powers and duties thereof, and
amended by chapter 218 of the laws of 2007 to extend the date of
sunset of the commission to 2023.

Section 2. Resurrects the provisions of section 37 of the parks,
recreation and historic preservation law, as repealed by section 4 of
chapter 371 of the laws of 1997, notwithstanding the provisions of
article 5 of the general construction law, to the full force and
effect as they existed on March 31, 2013.

Section 2. Establishes an immediate effective date for this act and
states that the act shall be deemed to have been in full force and
effect on and after April 1, 2013.

JUSTIFICATION:

The Mohawk Valley's history is unique and calls for a distinctive
system of recognition, protection, and partnership to maintain its
economic viability. Therefore it is fitting to be designated to join
the New York State Heritage Areas System. Chapter 371 of the laws of
1997, amended the parks, recreation and historic preservation law,
providing for the formation of the Mohawk Valley heritage corridor
planning commission and preparation of a regional management plan.
That plan provides for community revitalization and the development of
heritage tourism within the region. To date, the commission has
implemented the plan for the benefit of member counties, and continues
to assist in ongoing community revitalization and heritage tourism
efforts.

The provisions of law establishing the Mohawk Valley heritage corridor
commission (MVHCC) have expired and this bill would reinstate those
provisions. Given the Commission's success and the critical need fox.
its ongoing assistance, this legislation extends the Mohawk Valley
Heritage Corridor Commission from April 1, 2013 to April 1, 2023.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill


FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This bill shall go into effect immediately.
