BILL NUMBER:S250

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the economic development law, the public authorities law, the
general municipal law and the New York state urban development
corporation act, in relation to requiring first consideration of
unemployed individuals, low-income individuals, dislocated workers,
individuals training for nontraditional employment, as defined in the
federal workforce investment act of nineteen hundred ninety-eight
(P.L. 105-220),
veterans, and individuals with disabilities
for hiring for
positions created as a result of economic development assistance

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
For positions created as a result of various economic development
assistance programs, requires the businesses so assisted to first
consider for hiring unemployed and low-income individuals, dislocated
workers, and individuals training for nontraditional employment,
veterans and individuals with disabilities, as defined in the federal
workforce investment act. Updates outdated references to the federal
Job Training Partnership Act and the Department of Labor Job Service
Division.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Adds or amends first consideration language in the following sections
of law: Economic Development Law § 184 - NYS economic development
power allocation board; Economic Development Law .202 - skills
development assistance program; Economic Development Law .224 -
export diagnostic and market development program; Public Authorities
Law (PAL) § 1005 - NY Power Authority; PAL §1804 - Job Development
Authority; PAL § 1967A - Troy Industrial Development Authority; PAL
2329 - Auburn Industrial Development Authority; PAL §3102-A -
industrial technology extension service; General Municipal Law §8S8-B
- Industrial Development Authorities; Urban Development Corporation
(UDC) Act §9-B -loans for small and medium sized business; UDC Act
§16-B - job retention and defense Industry working capital loan; UDC
Act § 16-e - minority and women-owned business development and
lending; UDC Act § 16-E - regional economic development partnership
program; UDC Act § 16-H - JOBS Now program; UDC Act §16-M - empire
state economic development fund.

EFFECTS OF PRESENT LAW WHICH THIS BILL WOULD ALTER:
Where "first consideration" language is already in law, the bill
updates outdated references to the Job Training Partnership Act and
the Department of Labor Job Division, and adds a requirement to
notify local work force investment boards of position openings. The
bill also adds first consideration provisions to two large programs
that did not previously have this language, the JOBS Now program and
the Empire State Economic Development Fund.

JUSTIFICATION:
To help create new jobs, the state provides grants and loans to
businesses. Existing law has required for certain programs that the
businesses so aided give first consideration for hiring to displaced,


unemployed and low-income New Yorkers when new jobs are created. This
bill brings the law up to date by referencing the federal Workforce
Investment Act, and adds the "first consideration" requirement to two
additional economic development assistance programs.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-2010: S.7644 - Died in Committee

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
