AN ACT to amend the tax law, in relation to creating a  tax  credit  for
  people  who  deliver broadband services to a target group of subscrib-
  ers; and providing for the repeal of such provisions  upon  expiration
  thereof

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

  Section 1. This act shall be known and may be cited as the  "Broadband
Internet Access Act of 2013".
  S  2. Legislative intent.  The telecommunications revolution is trans-
forming virtually every  aspect  of  American  life.  Encouraging  rapid
development  of  broadband  infrastructure,  and ensuring the ubiquitous
availability of current and next generation broadband  capacity,  is  an
urgent priority of the legislature. Increasing the speed at which Ameri-
cans  can access the internet is necessary to ensure the economic expan-
sion of the state of New York. End users from all parts  of  the  state,
including urban, rural and low income areas, should be afforded a choice
among  carriers,  high-speed  access  to  a wide array of audio and data
applications, and the opportunity to take  advantage  of  the  prospects
created  by the deployment and use of current and next generation broad-
band facilities.  Accordingly, it is appropriate for the legislature  to
take  action to accelerate the deployment of current and next generation
broadband capability in the state of New York.
  S 3. The tax law is amended by adding a new  section  38  to  read  as
follows:
  S  38. BROADBAND DEVELOPMENT TAX CREDIT.  (A) A PROVIDER OF TELECOMMU-
NICATIONS SERVICES, WHO IS SUBJECT TO TAXATION  UNDER  ARTICLE  NINE  OF
THIS  CHAPTER,  SHALL  BE  ALLOWED A CREDIT AGAINST THE TAXES IMPOSED BY
SUCH ARTICLE. SUCH CREDIT SHALL BE DETERMINED AS FOLLOWS:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD09969-03-3
