AN ACT to amend the executive  law,  in  relation  to  establishing  the
  empire  state  performance  commission in the executive department for
  the purpose of designing and advising the governor and the legislature
  on the implementation of  a  performance-management  and  performance-
  budgeting system

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as
the "empire state performance commission act".
  S  2.  Legislative  intent. New York's lack of a comprehensive perfor-
mance-budgeting scheme for state-funded programs often leads  to  irreg-
ular  appropriation  practices  and rigid across-the-board cuts, without
regard to the  programs'  effectiveness.  A  performance-management  and
performance-budgeting  system  that  ties program funding to the results
the programs achieve would provide lawmakers with  more  flexibility  in
making  budget  decisions  and  provide the public with a means by which
they can evaluate how their tax dollars are being spent.
  The legislature recognizes that implementing and maintaining a compre-
hensive system of performance-management and performance-budgeting is  a
complicated  process  that will require cooperation between the legisla-
tive and executive branches in  order  to  be  successful.  Unilaterally
imposing  performance-management  and performance-budgeting requirements
on executive agencies would  likely  be  unproductive  and  ineffective.
Reforming  the  state  budget process requires careful deliberation that
includes feedback from the various stakeholders in the process,  includ-
ing the public.
