TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 105 of the laws of 2009
amending chapter 693 of the laws of 1980 enabling the county of Albany
to impose and collect taxes on occupancy of hotel or motel rooms in
Albany county relating to revenues received from the collection of
hotel or motel occupancy taxes, in relation to the effectiveness
thereof

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Extends the effectiveness of chapter
312 of the laws of 2012 for two years.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Amends chapter 312 of 2012, extending
the sunset from December 31, 2014 to December 31, 2016.

tax is slated to sunset on December 31, 2014. In order for the county
