BILL NUMBER:S1366

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the executive law and the environmental conservation law, in
relation to development of a permit system to provide disabled veterans
access to certain restricted bodies of water through the use of float
planes

PURPOSE:
To provide a qualified veteran with a certified disability access by a
float plane to appropriate lands under the Department of
Environmental Conservation's jurisdiction consistent with Article
XIV, Section 1 of the New York State Constitution.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
The legislation amends the Environmental Conservation Law to
establishes a system by which the Department of Environmental
Conservation can grant a non-transferable temporary revocable permit
to allow the use of state lands under the jurisdiction of the
departments.

The Department shall determine annually on or before January 1 at
minimum five bodies of water under the jurisdiction of the Department
which pursuant to a Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan in
accordance with § 816 of the Executive Law prohibits float plane
access, that shall become accessible for individuals in legal
possession of a permit.

The Department in determining which bodies of water to allow for float
plane access with a permit shall be shall insure that access will not
adversely impact the environment in the following manner:

(1) The natural resources of the area ability to sustain use by float
plane;

(2) The compatible with other public use of the area;

(3) The safety of the operation of a float plane and the ability to
prevent dangerous conditions;

(4) A demonstration that significant ecological areas including but
limited to the following; exceptional forest or plant communities,
shorelines, unique areas, wetlands, habitats for rare or threatened
species, and biological diversity areas possessing unique, exemplary
or significant
natural community requiring special protection, will not be adversely
effected by the operation of a float plane consistent with the
provisions of this chapter.

EXISTING LAW:
It is the policy of the Department of Environmental Conservation to
provide a qualified person with a certified disability access by a
suitable motor vehicle to certain lands under its jurisdiction.


A qualified person with a certified disability who wants to access
State land by a suitable motor vehicle, where either the desired
location is closed to motor vehicles or is open to motor vehicles
different from the type of motor vehicle desired to be used by that
person, may do so only through the authority of a permit. Such permit
shall provide that the qualified person with a certified disability
is authorized to operate a suitable type of motor vehicle as
designated in the permit on all roads, trails and geographical areas
designated by the Department for such use and elsewhere as
specifically approved, consistent with current law and rules and
regulations.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Adirondack Mountains of northeastern New York are home to the
six-million-acre Adirondack Park, a patchwork of public and private
lands protected under state law. More than 2.6 million acres within
the park are owned and managed by the state. New York's Constitution
states that these public lands in the Adirondack Park must never be
developed and "...shall be forever kept as wild forest lands."

This protected land, which ranges from remote back country to
well-traveled mountain trails, provides a tremendous resource both
for preservation and recreation. Throughout the park, the state
Department of Environmental Conservation maintains more than 2,000
miles of marked trails available for people of all interests and
abilities.
