BILL NUMBER:S3636

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the county law, in relation to allowing
Ontario county to participate in the Foreign Trade Zone program

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Authorizes the county of Ontario to
apply to the federal government to establish, operate and maintain a
foreign trade zone or zones and foreign trade sub-zone or sub-zones
within such county, and adjacent counties of Livingston, Wayne, Seneca,
Yates, and Steuben.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1. Amends Section 224 of the
County Law by adding a new subdivision 28 to allow for the County of
Ontario, through its Ontario Economic Development Corporation, to make
application to the Foreign Trade Zones Board established by Congress.

Section 2. Contains the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Numerous companies within Ontario County expressed inter-
est in having access to Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) benefits. The Ontario
County Economic Development Corporation (OCEDC) recognized the need for
FTZ status in Ontario County by passing a resolution to apply for FTZ
grantee status under an Alternative Site Framework (ASF) on August 21,
2012.

The Counties of Wayne, Yates, Seneca, Steuben and Livingston have
expressed a desire to join OCEDC's application for FTZ grantee status.

The Ontario County Board of Supervisors supports OCEDC' s application
for FTZ grantee status and passed resolution NO. 868-2012 on December
21, 2012 requesting that this enabling legislation be adopted.

The establishment of a new Zone under ASF will help the region serve the
trade-related needs of businesses by providing the proposed Grantee with
the efficiency and flexibility in serving prospective users at the speed
of business. It will bring job opportunities to the area, encourage the
development of other businesses and further expand the area's logistics
status. By creating a more business friendly environment, the retention,
expansion and relocation of businesses will naturally occur. The result-
ing economic impact will yield two positive results: added household
earnings and an additional tax base for the funding of public project
expansion and modernization.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
