BILL NUMBER:S6899

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the private housing finance law, in relation to the powers of
the new York state housing finance agency relating to an increase in bond
and note
authorization

PURPOSE OF THE BILL:
The bill would increase the New York State Housing Finance Agency's
("HFA") bonding authority by $1 billion to a maximum aggregate of
$17.280 billion.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill would amend Private Housing Finance Law ("PHFL")
§ 47, subd. 1, para. (c) to increase the bonding authority of HFA by
$1 billion to a maximum aggregate of $17.280 billion.

Section 2 of the bill provides for an immediate effective date.

EXISTING LAW:
Current law authorizes HFA to issue bonds and notes for any of its
corporate purposes in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed
$16.280 billion.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
Since 2000, similar bills have been enacted annually to increase
HFA's bonding authority and on a biennial basis to extend HFA's
authority to issue bonds. See Chapter 100 of the Laws of 2011;
Chapter 407 of the laws of 2010; Chapter 176 of the Laws of 2009;
Chapter 151 of the laws of 2008; Chapter 85 of the Laws of 2007;
Chapter 398 of the Laws of 2006; Chapter 124 of the Laws of 2005;
Chapter 204 of the Laws of 2004; Chapter 99 of the Laws of 2003;
Chapter 48 of the Laws of 2002; Chapter 363 of the Laws of 2001;
and Chapter 131 of the Laws of 2000.

STATEMENT IN SUPPORT:
This bill would increase the maximum amount of new money bonds which
HFA is authorized to issue. HFA currently has a substantial
pipeline of financing requests that will create and preserve
affordable housing across New York State. The bill would increase
HFA's authority to issue bonds up to $1 billion for a maximum aggregate
of $17.280 billion, enabling HFA to continue to meet the housing
demands of New Yorkers, as well as creating jobs and providing
economic stimulus.

BUDGET IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This bill takes effect immediately.
