BILL NUMBER:S3717

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general municipal law, in relation
to the establishment of the White Plains industrial development agency

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Establishes the City of White Plains
industrial development agency and provides for its functions, powers,
and duties.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill adds a new section
902-d to the General Municipal Law, creating the City of White Plains
Industrial Development Agency. This section further provides that the
powers of the IDA with respect to the acquisition of real property by
purchase will be limited to the corporate limits of the City of White
Plains.

EFFECTS OF PRESENT LAW WHICH THIS BILL WOULD ALTER: Municipalities may
not form IDAs unless specifically authorized by the General Municipal
Law. Currently, more than fifty local governments in New York State have
authorized IDAs under the General Municipal Law.

JUSTIFICATION: Industrial Development Agencies in New York State are
created to promote the economic welfare and prosperity of the inhabit-
ants of a municipality or county. Farther it is their function to
actively attract and encourage development in the area in question. This
legislation establishes the formation of an Industrial Development Agen-
cy in the City of White Plains. The City has requested this legislation
in an effort to promote economic and recreational opportunities for its
residents.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A.143, 2011 and 2012 referred to local governments.
Same as S.3797, 2011 committed to rules; 2012 referred to local govern-
ment. A.1021, 2009 and 2010 referred to local governments. A.7205, 2007
and 2008 referred to local governments. A.1774, 2005-06 referred to
local governments. A.2205, 2004 referred to local governments.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the state, possible administrative costs to
the City of White Plains which should be offset by the increased econom-
ic development.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediate, with provisions.
