BILL NUMBER:S1010 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the emergency tenant protection act of nineteen seventy-four, in relation to limited-profit housing companies and other buildings or structures which received project-based rental assistance PURPOSE: This bill protects those tenants who live in Mitchell-Lama and project-based Section 8 buildings whose owners have bought out of the Mitchell-Lama program or who no longer have Section 8 contracts with the United States Department of housing and urban Development (HUD). SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill authorizes New York City or any city, town or village in the counties of Westchester, Nassau and Rockland to extend the Emergency Tenant Protection Act (the ETPA) to cover rental buildings which: (1) were owned by limited-profit housing companies which voluntarily dissolved or which dissolve in the future, or (2) were covered by rental assistance contracts between their owners and HUD and such contracts expired or terminated previously or do so in the future. This bill also prevents owners of such buildings from applying for higher initial rents under the ETPA or the New York City Rent Stabilization Law than were previously charged to their tenants.

S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 1010 2011-2012 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E (PREFILED) January 5, 2011 ___________ Introduced by Sens. STEWART-COUSINS, ADAMS, ADDABBO, DIAZ, DILAN, HASSELL-THOMPSON, HUNTLEY, KLEIN, KRUEGER, PARKER, PERALTA, PERKINS, SAVINO, SERRANO, SQUADRON, STAVISKY -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Housing, Construction and Community Development AN ACT to amend the emergency tenant protection act of nineteen seven- ty-four, in relation to limited-profit housing companies and other buildings or structures which received project-based rental assistance THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings and declaration of emergency. The legislature hereby finds and declares that the serious public emergency which led to the enactment of the existing laws regulating residential rents and evictions continues to exist; that such laws would better serve the public interest if certain changes were made thereto, includ- ing extending to certain cities, towns and villages the authority to provide for the regulation of rents and evictions with regard to housing accommodations that cease or have ceased to be regulated pursuant to article 2 of the private housing finance law, known as the Mitchell-Lama law, or pursuant to project-based section eight contracts entered into with the federal government. The legislature further recognizes that severe disruption of the rental housing market has occurred and threatens to be exacerbated as a result of the abrupt termination of rent and eviction regulation when buildings exit the Mitchell-Lama program or when buildings cease to be subject to project-based section eight contracts. The situation had permitted speculative and profiteering practices and has brought about the loss of vital and irreplaceable affordable housing for working persons and families. EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted. LBD04041-01-1
