BILL NUMBER:S4539

TITLE OF BILL: An act to repeal section 50-b of the civil service
law, section 460-a of the judiciary law and section 6501-a of the
education law relating to disclosure of loans made or guaranteed by
the New York state higher education services corporation

Purpose of Bill:

This bill would repeal various sections of law that require State and
local entities to send information about certain applicants for
examinations or licenses to the Higher Education Services Corporation
(HESC).

Summary of Provisions:

The bill repeals Civil Service Law § 50-b, Judiciary Law § 460-a, and
Education Law § 6501-a.

Existing Law:

Civil Service Law § 50-b requires every public service examination
application given by a municipality or by the State Department of
Civil Service to ask whether the applicant has any loans made or
guaranteed by HESC currently outstanding, and if so, whether such
applicant is presently in default on any such loan. The municipality
or Department of Civil Service is then required to send the name and
address of any applicant who answers yes to either question to HESC.

Judiciary Law § 460-a requires every application for admission to
practice as an attorney in New York to include a question as to
whether the applicant has any loans made or guaranteed by HESC
currently outstanding, and if so, whether such applicant is presently
in default on any such loan. The relevant appellate division is then
required to send the name and address of any applicant who answers yes
to either question to HESC.

Education Law § 6501-a requires every application for a license issued
pursuant to Article 130 of the Education Law to include a question as
to whether the applicant has any loans made or guaranteed by HESC
currently outstanding, and if so, whether such applicant is presently
in default on any such loan. The Department of Education is then
required to send the name and address of any applicant who answers yes
to either question to HESC.

Past Legislative History:

This is a new proposal.

Statement in Support:

HESC currently receives timely and accurate information from other
State agencies electronically that identifies individuals with
outstanding loans or in default status. This method is significantly
more effective, less labor intensive and less costly to the State and
municipalities. Given such efficiencies, the data share process
required by Civil Service Law, Judiciary Law, and Education Law is no


longer cost effective or necessary. Accordingly, this legislation
would eliminate an unnecessary administrative burden on municipal and
State government.

Budget Implications:

None.

Effective Date:

Effective immediately.
