BILL NUMBER: S2653

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the public authorities law, in relation to expanding
the definition of educational institution to include Alliance of Long
Island Agencies, Inc.


PURPOSE :
To authorize the NYS Dormitory Authority to provide financing for
construction and reconstruction of educational, administrative and
residential facilities in the state by the Alliance for Long Island
Agencies, Inc.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
The bill amends section 1676 subdivision 2 paragraph (b) and section
1680 subdivision 1 of the public authority law to include the Alliance
of Long Island Agencies, Inc. among those similarly situated groups
who are eligible to receive Dormitory Authority funding. It provides
for an immediate effective date.

EXISTING LAW :
Other similarly situated not-for-profit corporations are listed as
designated agencies to receive Dormitory Authority funding.

JUSTIFICATION :
The relatively small size of community agencies providing services to
people with disabilities has limited the agencies' access to financing
or, when financing has been available, has made it very expensive.
Allowing the Alliance of Long Island Agencies, Inc., a not-for-profit
corporation, to be included on the list of designated agencies to
receive dormitory authority funding will enable such service providers
to join together to achieve economies of scale and lower rates of
financing.

By blending together agencies of diverse size and location who offer
substantially similar services, the agencies will be able to acquire
financing for much needed expansion, renovation and construction at
more economical rates. Old debt incurred at high rates by the
individual agencies can be consolidated and replaced by refinancing at
much more favorable rates through Dormitory Authority support.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
Immediately.

for the Alliance of Long Island Agencies, Inc.

PURPOSE :
To authorize the NYS Dormitory Authority to provide financing for
construction and reconstruction of educational, administrative, day

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
The bill amends section 1676 subdivision 2 paragraph (b) and section
1680 subdivision 1 of the public authority law to include the Alliance

who are eligible to receive Dormitory Authority funding. It provides

EXISTING LAW :

JUSTIFICATION :
The relatively small size of community agencies providing services to
people with disabilities has limited the agencies' access to financing

Allowing the Alliance of Long Island Agencies, Inc, a not-for-profit
corporation, to be included on the list of designated agencies to
