BILL NUMBER:S1863

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law and the state technol-
ogy law, in relation to global positioning system technology in state
vehicles on and after January 1, 2014

PURPOSE: This bill would require that all vehicles acquired for state
use on or after January 1, 2014 be equipped with global positioning
system technology.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 - adds a new section 201-b to
the Executive Law providing that all vehicles acquired for state use on
or after January 1, 2014 shall be equipped with global positioning
system technology. The Office of General Services, in coordination with
the Office for Technology, is required to establish a program to track
these vehicles and submit such plan to the Governor, the President of
the Senate and the Speaker of the Assembly on or before July 1, 2014.

Section 2 - adds a new section 103-a to the State Technology Law to
provide all vehicles acquired for state use on or after January 1, 2014
shall be equipped with global positioning system technology. The Office
of General Services, in coordination with the Office for Technology, is
required to establish a program to track these vehicles and submit such
plan to the Governor, the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the
Assembly on or before July 1, 2014.

Section 3 - Effective date.

CURRENT LAW: New law in New York State. Many local communities in New
York, and other states and communities across the country have recog-
nized the safety and cost benefits of using this technology.

JUSTIFICATION: Global positioning systems have now become mainstream
technology that can provide many benefits at low cost. The systems can
provide important safety benefits to operators of vehicles in the event
of an accident, storm or vehicle breakdown. They can be used to help an
operator who is lost, and instantly locate a vehicle that has been
involved in an accident. In addition, the system can determine if a
vehicle is being improperly used, offering savings to the state for
fuel, wear on the vehicle, employee time misused and potential liability
when a state vehicle is being improperly operated. The benefits, in both
heightened safety and cost savings far exceed the modest costs to
install and monitor these systems.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Expected savings to state.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2010 - S.3518 -- INVESTIGATIONS 2011-2012 -
S.3226-A - FINANCE

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and the amendment
and/or repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for the implementation

of this act on its effective date are authorized and directed to be
made.
