AN  ACT  to  amend  the  arts  and  cultural affairs law, in relation to
  authorizing volunteer fire and ambulance companies to  receive  grants
  for local government records management improvement

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The legislature finds that  volunteer  fire  and  ambulance
companies  perform  a  vital  function for the municipalities which they
serve, one that is essential to the health, safety, and welfare  of  all
persons  within  such  municipalities.  Such  functions  are therefore a
public purpose. Thus, the public records of volunteer fire and ambulance
companies are a matter of great importance and concern to the state  and
are  necessary  to  the  administration of the municipalities which they
serve. These public records document the legal responsibilities  of  the
volunteer  fire  and  ambulance  companies and the reciprocal rights and
liabilities of the municipalities  which  they  serve.  These  essential
public  records provide citizens and other public officials with a means
of monitoring the entitlements and obligation of municipalities and  the
expenditure  of public funds. In addition, such records also reflect the
historical development of the communities served by such volunteer  fire
and ambulance companies.
  Such  records  are  necessary  to  municipalities  in  connection with
service award programs for volunteer firefighters  and  volunteer  ambu-
lance  workers  pursuant  to  articles 11-A, 11-AA, 11-AAA, and 11-AAAA,
respectively, of the general municipal law. These  records  are  equally
necessary  in  connection with municipalities' obligations pertaining to
volunteer firefighters under article 10 of the general municipal law.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.

BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The legislature hereby finds and  declares  that  volunteer
fire  companies and volunteer ambulance companies perform vital services
for the municipalities they serve. These not-for-profit volunteer  emer-

these  organizations  work  collaboratively  with municipal officials in
their respective localities and help to reduce the burdens on our  local

  The records of volunteer fire companies and volunteer ambulance compa-

responsibilities with respect to the communities they serve. And, proper
records management assists municipalities and emergency response  organ-

In addition, these records make appropriate information available to the
public and to municipal officials with respect  to  fire  and  emergency
services, and also reflect the historical development of the communities
served  by  such  volunteer  fire  and  ambulance  companies.  For these
reasons, the legislature hereby further finds and declares that not-for-
