S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 5825 2011-2012 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E June 18, 2011 ___________ Introduced by Sen. GOLDEN -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules AN ACT in relation to livery permits in the city of New York THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature finds and declares that the public health, safety and welfare of the residents of the state of New York traveling to, from and within the city of New York is a matter of substantial state concern, which includes access to safe and reliable mass transportation such as taxicabs. The majority of residents and nonresidents of the city of New York do not currently have access to the necessary amount of legal, licensed taxicabs available for street hails when traveling within the city. Improving access to such mass transportation, including taxicabs, furthers this matter of substantial state concern. Additionally, the legislature finds and declares that there should be a greater amount of taxicabs serving the city of New York that are designed to foster increased access, mobility and inde- pendence of persons with disabilities. The health, safety and welfare of these persons with disabilities is placed at risk without adequate and reliable transportation. S 2. The city of New York may, acting by the mayor alone, administra- tively authorize the New York city taxi and limousine commission or its successor agency to issue up to one thousand five hundred taxicab licenses in addition to those already issued, provided, however, that five hundred sixty-nine of such taxicab licenses shall be restricted to vehicles that are accessible to individuals with disabilities, provided further that such additional licenses shall be issued by public sale and shall be fully transferable. The commission or successor thereto shall prescribe by regulation the procedures for the issuance and public sale of such additional licenses, by public auction, sealed bids or other competitive process. Such additional licenses may be issued on or after EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted. LBD13200-01-1
