AN ACT to amend the state finance law and  the  civil  service  law,  in
  relation to government employee benefit payments

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

  Section 1.  Legislative findings and declarations.    The  legislature
hereby  finds  and determines that real property taxes in New York state
are too high, and that the burden that they  place  upon  our  citizens,
homeowners  and businesses, is making it difficult for New York state to
thrive, prosper and succeed.
  The legislature further finds and determines  that  the  only  way  to
realistically  reduce  the  real  property tax burden upon our citizens,
homeowners and businesses, is to place a comprehensive approach in state
law which  controls  costs  and  spending  for  local  governments,  and
provides  significant  mandate relief with respect to their fiscal obli-
gations.
  The legislature additionally finds and determines that a comprehensive
approach of capping property taxes,  controlling  governmental  employee
benefit costs, and providing significant mandate relief to local govern-
ments  will  promote  the controlling of the cost and spending for local
governments, as well as helping to provide  significant  mandate  relief
with respect to their future fiscal obligations.
  The legislature finally finds and determines that this act seeks to be
a  part of a comprehensive approach to reduce real property taxes across
the state by controlling of governmental employee benefit costs and  the
provision of significant mandate relief to local governments.
  S  2. The state finance law is amended by adding a new section 92-o to
read as follows:
  S 92-O. STATE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE BENEFIT FUND. 1.   THERE  IS  HEREBY
CREATED  IN THE JOINT CUSTODY OF THE STATE COMPTROLLER AND THE PRESIDENT

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD10712-01-1
