BILL NUMBER:S6768

TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to authorizing the commissioner of
environmental conservation to undertake projects to protect the
Montauk Lighthouse from shore erosion

PURPOSE:

This legislation would allow the Department of Environmental
Conservation to undertake any project to protect the Montauk
Lighthouse from shore erosion.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

This is a special act authorizing the Department of Environmental
Conservation to undertake any project to protect the Montauk
Lighthouse from shore erosion, notwithstanding any other laws to the
contrary.

JUSTIFICATION:

The Montauk Lighthouse, owned by the Montauk Historical Society, is a
historically significant site on the east end of Long Island.
Unfortunately, the area is seriously threatened by erosion.

The Department of Environmental Conservation is a partner with other
levels of government to protect the Montauk Lighthouse, but State law
does not allow a State agency to enter into this type of agreement
with a not-for-profit corporation.

This legislation would allow such an agreement to protect the Montauk
Lighthouse.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2011-12: A.7177/S.4863
2009-10: A.2295/S.757
2008: A.10551/S.7593

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
