BILL NUMBER:S5318

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend chapter 203 of the laws of 1999, amending the environmental
conservation law relating to extending Nassau county's authority to
initiate and enforce certain actions,
in relation to the extension of Nassau county's authority to initiate
and enforce certain actions

PURPOSE:
This bill extends until October 1, 2011, the authority of the
Health Commissioner of Nassau County, pursuant to Environmental
Conservation Law Section 71-1939, to enforce certain provisions of
the Environmental Conservation Law for water pollution control.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill amends Section 2 of
Chapter 203 of the laws of 1999, by extending through October 1,
2013, the authority granted by Environmental Conservation Law Section
71-1939 (c) and (d) to the Nassau County Health Commissioner to
enforce certain provisions of the Environmental Conservation Law
relating to water pollution control, including the general
prohibition against water pollution and pollution of the marine
district, and for the control of bulk storage of petroleum. These
provisions previously were extended by chapter 86 of the laws of 2009
through October 1, 2011.

JUSTIFICATION:
This legislation is needed to preserve the Nassau
County Health Commissioner's power to enforce certain provisions of
the Environmental Conservation Law regulating water pollution. Nassau
County's water bodies are perhaps its most precious natural resource.
It is critical to the welfare of the residents of the County that the
County's water resources be vigorously protected. Preserving the
County Health Commissioner's power to enforce water pollution control
regulations is thus essential.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
