BILL NUMBER:S6952 REVISED 5/29/14

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to
including the Woods Brook in the definition of "inland waterways" for
the purposes of waterfront revitalization

PURPOSE: To designate the Hoosic River as an Inland Waterway for
purposes of the State's Coastal and Inland Waterways program.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends Subdivision 4 of Section 911
of the Executive Law by expanding the definition of "inland waterways"
to include the Hoosic River.

JUSTIFICATION: Designation as an "inland waterway" makes the local
communities along such waterway eligible to participate in New York's
Coastal and Inland Waterways Program. The State offers a grant
program, funded through the Environmental Protection Fund, which
assists communities in developing and implementing local waterfront
revitalization programs.

In recent years, several waterways have been added to the definition,
reflecting the interest in, and benefits of this program. This
legislation would amend the definition to also include the Hoosic
River, located in Rensselaer County.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
