AN ACT to direct the law revision commission to make recommendations  to
  the legislature concerning proposed revisions to the general city law,
  the  town  law, the county law, the village law, the general municipal
  law, the local finance law and any related statutes

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  The  legislature  hereby  finds and declares it to be the
policy of the state that the present statutory structure of general laws
that relate to local government have evolved in a  disorganized  manner,
contain  overlapping  statutory  provisions, contain outdated provisions
that fail to meet the needs and goals presented by the challenges of the
twenty-first century and that there is a need for a new state policy  on
local  government  organization.  The  last  time  any general law as it
relates to local government was completely revised was the  village  law
in 1972. The budgetary pressures placed on all forms of local government
require  a revision of the general powers that relate to the delivery of
services to their citizens in a fair and financially responsible manner.
In addition, the body of general laws that relate to  local  government,
including  but  not  limited to, the general city law, the town law, the
county law, the village law, the general municipal  law  and  the  local
finance  law,  is, in many instances, confusing to local public officers
and the citizens of the state and contrary to the principles of simplic-
ity, ease of administration, fairness and equity.
  S 2. The law revision commission is hereby directed to:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
