BILL NUMBER:S1091

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the state finance law, in relation to prohibiting the transfer
of unexpended moneys from funds receiving moneys from a dedicated fee
into any other fund

PURPOSE:
To prevent the transfer of funds from accounts that are specifically
supported with a dedicated fee.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one amends the state finance law by adding a new section
stating that fees collected to support a specific fund will only be
expended for that specific purpose.

Section two - effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Various funds exist in the state budget to support specific activities
of all New Yorkers such as land conservation, fishing and hunting and
maintenance of trails throughout the state. Fees supporting such
funds are paid with the understanding that the state will dedicate
the total revenues derived from these fees to the payment of expenses
directly
related to the specific activity for which the fees were collected.
