BILL NUMBER:S6952A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to
including the Hoosic River 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.
