BILL NUMBER:S5198

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to repeal
certain provisions of the public authorities law relating
to certain authorities

PURPOSE:
This bill would repeal the statutory authorization for certain public
authorities that have ceased operations, have dissolved by operation
of law or were never established, and would vest their records,
property, rights, titles and interest, and ail obligations and
liabilities in the municipality in whose interest such authorities
were created.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
This bill would repeal the statutory authorization for the following
public authorities:

The Long island Market Authority, the Alfred, Almond, Hornellsville
Sewer Authority, the Amsterdam Parking Authority, the Monroe Regional
Parking Authority, the Hudson Parking Authority, the Elmira Parking
Authority, the Fulton Parking Authority, the Peekskill Parking
Authority, the Port Jervis Parking Authority, the Utica Parking
Authority, the Oswego Parking Authority, the City of New Rochelle
Parking Authority, the City of Poughkeepsie Parking Authority, the
Village of Spring Valley Parking Authority, the City of Long Beach
Parking Authority, the City of North Tonawanda Parking Authority, the
Johnson City Parking Authority, the Salamanca Hospital District
Authority, the Salamanca Indian Lease Authority, the Long Island Job
Development Authority, the Historic Rome Development Authority, the
Multitown Solid Waste Management Authority, the Broome County
Resource Recovery Agency, the County of Essex Solid Waste Management
Authority, the Town of Brookhaven Resource Recovery Agency, the
Greater Troy Area Solid Waste Management Authority, the City of
Peekskill Civic Center Authority, the County of Chautauqua Sports,
Recreation and Cultural Authority.

JUSTIFICATION:
This bill would repeal the statutory authorization for certain
authorities which are either defunct or which were never ultimately
established by local law. The authorities listed in this bill have
been determined inactive by the New York State Authorities Budget
Office, Department of Economic Development, Office of the Stale
Comptroller, or Commission on Public Authority Reform, based on
consultation with the affected local government.

Although these authorities no longer function, their authorization
continues in State Law. This bill would repeal these various sections
of the Public Authorities Law to formally dissolve these authorities
that are no longer actively engaged in the public purpose for which
they were established. According to the Authorities Budget Office,
none of these authorities has any outstanding debt or other
obligations.


This bill would thereby seek to advance the State's effort to maintain
an accurate inventory of its active authorities and repeal the laws
which would authorize those which are no longer in operation. In so
updating state law, this bill would more accurately reflect in law
that these authorities have, as a practical matter, ceased to exist.
In eliminating defunct authorities, this bill would ensure that if a
local government wishes once again to use an authority for urban
renewal,
industrial development, parking, or other similar purpose, it must
obtain new legislation at the state level authorizing such use. This
bill would thus promote the State's interest in curbing the
proliferation of unnecessary authorities.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None Noted

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This bill would take effect 60 days after it becomes a law.

BILL NUMBER:S5198B

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to repeal certain provisions of the public authorities law relat-
ing to certain authorities and to transfer any books, records and
remaining rights of any dissolved authority to an identifiable location

PURPOSE:
This bill would repeal the statutory authorization for celiain public
authorities that have ceased operations, have dissolved by operation
oflaw or were never established, and would vest their records, property,
rights, titles and interest, and all obligations and liabilities in the
municipality in whose interest such authorities were created.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
This bill would repeal the statutory authorization for the following
public authorities:

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
This bill would repeal the statutory authorization for the following
public authorities:

The Long Island Market Authority, the Alfred, Almond, Homellsville Sewer
Authority, the Amsterdam Parking Authority, the Monroe Regional Parking
Authority, the Johnson City Parking Authority, the Hudson Parking
Authority, the Elmira Parking Authority, the Peekskill Parking Authori-
ty, the Fulton Parking Authority, the City of Troy Parking Authority,
the Port Jervis Parking Authority, the Utica Parking Authority, the
Owego Parking Authority, the City of New Rochelle Parking Authority, the
City of Poughkeepsie Parking Authority, the Village of Spring Valley
Parking Authority, the City of Long Beach Parking Authority, the City of
North Tonawanda Parking Authority, the Salamanca Hospital District
Authority, the Salamanca Indian Lease Authority, the Long Island Job
Development Authority, the Historic Rome Development Authority, the
Center Authority of Glens Falls, the Multitown Solid Waste Management
Authority, the Broome County Resource Recovery Agency, the Brookhaven
Resource Recovery Agency, the County of Essex Solid Waste Management
Authority, the Greater Troy Area Solid Waste Management Authority, the
City of Peekskill Civic Center Authority, and the County of Chautauqua
Sports, Recreation and Cultural Authority.

JUSTIFICATION:
This bill would repeal the statutory authorization for certain authori-
ties which are either defunct or which were never ultimately established
by local law. The authorities listed in this bill have been determined
inactive by the New York State Authorities Budget Office, Department of
Economic Development, Office of the Stale Comptroller, or Commission on
Public Authority Reform, based on consultation with the affected local
government.

Although these authorities no longer function, their authorization
continues in State Law. This bill would repeal these various sections of
the Public Authorities Law to formally dissolve these authorities that
are no longer actively engaged in the public purpose for which they were
Established. According to the Authorities Budget Office, none of these
authorities has any outstanding debt or other obligations.

This bill would thereby seek to advance the State's effort to maintain
an accurate inventory of its active authorities and repeal the laws
which would authorize those which are no longer in operation. In so
updating state law, this bill would more accurately reflect in law that
these authorities have, as a practical matter, ceased to exist. In
eliminating defunct authorities, this bill would ensure that if a local
government wishes once again to use an authority for urban renewal,
industrial development, parking, or other similar purpose, it must
obtain new legislation at the state level authorizing such use. This
bill would thus promote the State's interest in curbing the prolifer
ation of unnecessary authorities.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None noted.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This bill would take effect 60 days after it becomes a law.

that are no longer actively engaged in the public purpose for which
they were Established. According to the Authorities Budget Office,
none of these authorities has any outstanding debt or other
obligations.

This bill would thereby seek to advance the State's effort to maintain
an accurate inventory of its active authorities and repeal the laws
which would authorize those which are no longer in operation. In so
updating state law, this bill would more accurately reflect in law
that these authorities have, as a practical matter, ceased to exist.
In eliminating defunct authorities, this bill would ensure that if a
local government wishes once again to use an authority for urban
renewal, industrial development, parking, or other similar purpose,
it must obtain new legislation at the state level authorizing such
use. This bill would thus promote the State's interest in curbing the
proliferation of unnecessary authorities.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None noted.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This bill would take effect 60 days after it becomes a law.

BILL NUMBER:S5198D

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to repeal
certain provisions of the public authorities law relating
to certain authorities
and to transfer any books, records and remaining rights of any dissolved
authority to an identifiable location

PURPOSE:
This bill would repeal the statutory authorization for
certain public authorities that have ceased operations, have
dissolved by operation of law or were never established, and would
vest their records, property, rights, titles and interest, and all
obligations and liabilities in the municipality in whose interest
such authorities were created.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
This bill would repeal the statutory
authorization for the following public authorities:

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
This bill would repeal the statutory
authorization for the following public authorities:

The Amsterdam Parking Authority, the Monroe Regional Parking
Authority, the Johnson City Parking Authority, the Hudson Parking
Authority, the Elmira Parking Authority, the Peekskill Parking
Authority, the Fulton Parking Authority, the City of Troy Parking
Authority, the Port Jervis Parking Authority, the Utica Parking
Authority, the Owego Parking Authority, the City of New Rochelle
Parking Authority, the City of Poughkeepsie Parking Authority, the
Village of Spring Valley Parking Authority, the City of Long Beach
Parking Authority, the City of North Tonawanda Parking Authority, the
Salamanca Hospital District Authority, the Salamanca Indian Lease
Authority, the Long Island Job Development Authority, the Historic
Rome Development Authority, the Center Authority of Glens Falls, the
Multitown Solid Waste Management Authority, the Broome County
Resource Recovery Agency, the Brookhaven Resource Recovery Agency,
the County of Essex Solid Waste Management Authority, the Greater
Troy Area Solid Waste Management Authority, the City of Peekskill
Civic Center Authority, and the County of Chautauqua Sports,
Recreation and Cultural Authority.

JUSTIFICATION:
This bill would repeal the statutory
authorization for
certain authorities which are either defunct or which were never
ultimately established by local law. The authorities listed in this
bill have been determined inactive by the New York State Authorities
Budget Office, Department of Economic Development, Office of the
State Comptroller, or Commission on Public Authority Reform, based on
consultation with the affected local governments.


Although these authorities no longer function, their authorization
continues in State Law. This bill would repeal these various sections
of the Public Authorities Law to formally dissolve these authorities
that are no longer actively engaged in the public purpose for which
they were Established. According to the Authorities Budget Office,
none of these authorities has any outstanding debt or other
obligations.

This bill would thereby seek to advance the State's effort to maintain
an accurate inventory of its active authorities and repeal the laws
which would authorize those which are no longer in operation. In so
updating state law, this bill would more accurately reflect in law
that these authorities have, as a practical matter, ceased to exist.
In eliminating defunct authorities, this bill would ensure that if a
local government wishes once again to use an authority for urban
renewal, industrial development, parking, or other similar purpose,
it must obtain new legislation at the state level authorizing such
use. This bill would thus promote the State's interest in
curbing the proliferation of unnecessary authorities.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None noted.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This bill would take effect 60 days after it becomes a law.
