BILL NUMBER:S6830

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the state law, in relation to
cessation of jurisdiction of a parcel of land comprising part of the
West Point Military Reservation

PURPOSE:

Authorizes the power to cede to the federal government full concurrent
jurisdiction in and over certain lands in Highlands, Orange County,
West Point Military Reservation.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

The state law is amended by adding a new section 52-c.

JUSTIFICATION:

Currently, West Point maintains proprietary jurisdiction over the
Cantonment Area, which consists of approximately 12,709.41 acres.
Unfortunately, this does not provide adequate law enforcement
capability to ensure the safety and security of the military
reservation. This legislation is important to the security of West
Point and the safety of its service members, their families and its
employees.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the state.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

Potential small savings to the local municipalities.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
