BILL NUMBER:S3245 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the canal law and the public authorities law, in relation to local waterfront revitalization plans and programs PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To include the Secretary of State as a voting member of the Canal Recreationway Commission and to encourage local governments to prepare local water front revitalization plans and programs. Such encouragement may include the provision of financial assistance to prepare and implement such plans and programs.

Adds a new paragraph (c) to subdivision 1 of section 384 of the public authorities law.
