AN ACT to create a temporary New York state women's suffrage 100th anni-
  versary commemoration commission, and providing  for  its  powers  and
  duties;  and  providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expira-
  tion thereof

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  findings.  The  legislature hereby finds and
declares there is a need to create a New  York  state  women's  suffrage
100th anniversary commemoration commission to promote the 100th anniver-
sary  of  women's suffrage, which will take place between the years 2017
and 2020. The primary focus of the New York state women's suffrage 100th
anniversary commemoration commission will be  to  plan  and  execute  an
organized  series of statewide conversations and programs that celebrate
the accomplishment of women's suffrage and the central role of New York-
ers and New York state in this  national  and  international  milestone,
while  also helping shape the future to ensure a more just and equitable
society for all. The legislature finds that the creation of a  New  York
state  women's  suffrage  100th  anniversary commemoration commission is
necessary to bring together persons qualified by  experience  and/or  by
powers vested in them by their offices to coordinate and facilitate such
a multi-year event.
  S  2.  New York state women's suffrage 100th anniversary commemoration
commission; created. (a) There  is  hereby  created  a  temporary  state
commission  to  be  known  as the "New York state women's suffrage 100th
anniversary commemoration commission".
  (b) As used in this act, "commission" means the New York state women's
suffrage 100th anniversary commemoration commission.
  (c) (1) The commission shall consist of 13 members as follows:
  (i) the commissioner of parks, recreation and  historic  preservation,
or his or her duly designated representative;
  (ii)  the  commissioner  of  education,  or his or her duly designated
representative;
