BILL NUMBER:S194

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the banking law, in relation to including low income credit
unions in the banking development district program

PURPOSE OF BILL:
To include low-income credit unions in the state's banking development
districts program in cities with a population of one million or more.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
The bill amends Section 96-d of the banking law to include credit
unions that have been designated low-income credit unions by the
State or the National Credit Union Administration, in the banking
development districts program in the City of New York.

JUSTIFICATION:
Section 96-d of the Banking Law, entitled "Banking Development
Districts" (BDD's) is designed to increase access to banking services
by supporting branches in areas where there is a demonstrated need
for such services In this way, the program aims to enable local
residents and small business owners to more easily become part of the
financial mainstream, promote economic development, and stimulate the
local economy by enhancing access to capital for local businesses.

In order to support branches in designated BDD's, the state
comptroller, public authorities or public benefit corporations of
the state, the commissioner of taxation and finance, and
municipalities may deposit public funds in these branches"

Section 96-d currently allows state and national banks, trust
companies, savings banks, savings and loan associations, and federal
savings banks to participate in the program, but omits credit unions.

By adding state low-income credit unions (already defined in section
450-a of the banking law), and any federal credit union designated
low income by the National Credit Union Administration, to the BDD
program, this bill will help them to continue their historic work of
providing affordable financial services to consumers who might
otherwise have difficulty accessing these services.

This bill will not require support of any particular low-income credit
union by any state or municipal agency, but will merely allow state
and federal low-income credit unions to be considered for such
support, on par with other types of financial institutions already
included in the BDD program.

This act shall take effect immediately, provided, however, that the
amendments subdivision 5 of section 96-d of the banking law made by
section one of this act shall not affect the repeal of such
subdivision and shall be deemed to be repealed therewith.
