BILL NUMBER:S3114

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the public housing law, in relation to the use of areas in
housing authority projects for tenant meetings

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

This bill would allow tenants, of public housing authority projects,
desiring to conduct a meeting pursuant to section two hundred thirty
of the real property law to have the use, without having to pay a
fee, of any location owned by the authority and set aside as an area
of common use for all tenants, including any community or social room
where use is normally subject to a fee, providing the meeting is
peacefully conducted, during reasonable hours, does not obstruct any
access, and the meeting space is reserved three days in advance.

JUSTIFICATION:

This legislation would give tenants of housing authority projects the
opportunity to plan and schedule meetings within their specific
complex without having to rent an authorized meeting space. Groups,
or committees, that, due to the inability to pay for a community or
social room where use is usually subject to a fee, would be forced to
meet in apartments or open areas in possible violation of building
codes, would be guaranteed free use of a bona-fide meeting place.
This legislation would also protect the housing authority complex by
requiring the authority governing the complex by giving three days
notice of the desired meeting which must be conducted in a peaceful
manner, during reasonable hours, and without obstruction of any
access to the premises or facilities.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2007: A.5557
2005-2006: A.736
2003-2004: A.6769
2001-2002: A.6314
1999-2000: A.1480
1997-1998: A.4035
1995-1996: A.7523

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.
