AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to authorizing the estab-
  lishment  and  operation  of  public-private  partnerships   for   the
  construction and operation of public infrastructure

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

  Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds that there
is a public need for  timely  development  and/or  operation  of  public
infrastructure within the state that address the needs identified by the
state  and  its  political  subdivisions by relieving the burden of real
property taxation, creating private  sector  jobs,  attracting    global
economic  development,  creating opportunities for small, minority-owned
and women-owned businesses, enhancing economic efficiency and that  such
public  need may not be wholly satisfied by existing methods of procure-
ment and operation in which qualifying public infrastructure  is  devel-
oped  and/or  operated.   Authorizing private entities to develop and/or
operate one or more public infrastructure may result in the  development
and/or  operation of such infrastructure to the public in a more timely,
more efficient, or less costly fashion, thereby serving the public safe-
ty and welfare.
  It is the intent of this act, among other things, to encourage invest-
ment in the state by private entities that facilitates  the  development
and operation of public infrastructure.  Accordingly, public and private
entities  may have the greatest possible flexibility in contracting with
each other for the provision of the governmental services which are  the
subject of this act.
  S 2. The executive law is amended by adding a new article 14-A to read
as follows:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD08875-03-3
