BILL NUMBER: S1299

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the public lands law, in relation to recycling on all
state-owned and state-leased real property


PURPOSE :
To implement a recycling program for all state owned and state leased
properties.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section one amends the public lands law to authorize the commissioner
of General Services to direct and coordinate a recycling management
program consistent with the recommendations provided by the waste
reduction and recycling program that would be implemented six months
after this bill is passed.

Section two states that all other departments and agencies of the
state shall receive assistance from the commissioner of the respective
agency in allowing the office to carry out the provisions set forth in
the first section of the bill.

Section three states that the commissioner of each state agency shall
develop incentive policies to encourage offices with in each agency to
adhere to the program established in section one of the bill.

Section four requires that all new and renewed lease hold agreements
established after the effective date of this bill must include the
provisions stated in this bill in contracts the state agency signs on
to.

Section five states that on or before January first 2010, and on an
annual basis after that that the commissioner of each affected state
agency must report to the governor and the legislature on the
effectiveness of the program. The commissioner also may make
recommendations to the said bodies on how to increase efficiency and
improve the implementation of and incentives for the program.

Section six states that this act shall take effect on the thirtieth
day after it shall have become a law.

JUSTIFICATION :
Each day tons of garbage enters the waste stream, placing a burden on
landfills found through out the state. The state can play a role in
fostering greater efforts at recycling by both setting an example at
state-owned facilities as well using its "power-of-the purse" to spend
state dollars at facilities that have recycling programs. It is
important that the state lead the way in recycling efforts in order to
spur private interest in such programs and to use its power the best
way possible to help preserve this planet's resources for future
generations.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
2007-2008: S.7843

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect on the thirtieth day after it shall have
become a law.
