BILL NUMBER:S359

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the executive law, in relation to annual reports concerning
veteran-owned small businesses

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
The purpose of this bill is to require the New York State Division of
Veterans' Affairs to include an accounting of the number of
veteran owned small businesses in the State of New York in its annual
report to the governor and members of the Legislature.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
The bill would require in the Division of Veterans' Affairs annual
report to the governor and legislature an accounting of the number of
veteran-owned small businesses in the State of New York. This
information would be reported in two categories: small business
concern owned and controlled by veterans and small business concern
owned and controlled by service-disabled veterans.

JUSTIFICATION:
There has been an increasing number of veterans who have returned
home from active military service and have started a small business.
Currently in New York State there is no listing of these types of
businesses owned and operated by veterans and disabled veterans. This
bill requires the division to contact each year the United States
Department of Veterans Affairs and any other appropriate federal
agencies to request this information and publish the results in the
division's annual report to the Governor and Legislature.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2011-12: A.7166A Passed Assembly
2012: S.6973 Referred to Veterans, Homeland Security, and
Military Affairs

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS:
None to the State or local governments.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act takes effect on the ninetieth day after it shall have become
a law.
