BILL NUMBER:S5182

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the arts and cultural affairs law, in relation to works of art
in the empire state plaza; to amend the general business law, in
relation to the rules and regulations for nail specialty, natural hair
styling, esthetics and cosmetology; to repeal article 4 of the arts and
cultural affairs law, in relation to the empire state plaza art
commission; to repeal section 433-a of the general business law, in
relation to the barbers board; and to repeal section 844-a of the
executive law, in relation to the New York statewide law enforcement
telecommunications committee

PURPOSE: To merger the powers of the Empire State
Plaza Art Commission
into the Office of State History. To repeal the Barbers Board and
the New York statewide law enforcement telecommunications committee.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 57.03 of the arts and
cultural affairs
law is amended by adding a new subdivision 7 that give the powers and
responsibilities of the Empire State Plaza Art commission to the
Office of State History.

These responsibilities include: (a) making recommendations to state
agencies regarding the custody, display, conservation, preservation
and maintenance of works of art in the empire state plaza under the
jurisdiction of such agencies; (b) to appraise and catalogue the works
of art in the empire state plaza; (c) to advise and assist state
agencies in the preparation and distribution of publications by such
agencies; (d) to make recommendations to the Governor, the
Legislature and the Commissioner of general service regarding
purchasing works of art for display at the Empire State Plaza; (e) To
solicit and acquire works of art for display at the Empire State
Plaza; (f) To enter into such contracts as may be necessary or
appropriate for the performance of the functions vested in it by this
article; (g) to provide the Legislature or either house assistance
with its offices and facilities in the Empire State Plaza; (h) assist
the commission of education, if requested, with the cultural
education center; (i) to solicit and accept gifts; (j) to establish a
program in consultation with the Commissioner of general services to
promote the Empire State Plaza Art collection to the public; (k) to
appoint a curator and employees to implement the

Repeals Article 4 of the Arts and Cultural Affairs Law.

Repeals section 433-a of the general business law creating the barbers
board.

Repeals section 844-a of the executive law creating the New York
statewide law enforcement telecommunications committee.

JUSTIFICATION: New York State Government is
constantly changing and
evolving. It is important that current law reflects those changes to


provide for a more efficient, streamlined state government. This
legislation eliminates a commission, board and committee that are no
longer necessary to provide the services they once did. The
elimination of the Empire State Plaza Art commission, the barbers
board and the New York statewide law enforcement telecommunications
committee will assist in decreasing the state current bureaucracy and
consolidate responsibilities.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
