BILL NUMBER:S6421 REVISED MEMO 01/23/14

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the state finance law, in relation to
the metropolitan transportation authority financial assistance fund;
and to repeal article 17-c of the vehicle and traffic law relating to
the metropolitan commuter transportation district supplemental
registration fee

PURPOSE:

To remove the metropolitan transportation district supplemental
registration fee

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 repeals Article 17-C of the Vehicle and Traffic Law.

Section 2 amends subdivision 3 and paragraph a of subdivision 6 of
section 92-ff of the state finance law to remove the supplemental
registration fee from the Metropolitan transportation authority
financial assistance fund.

Section 3 sets an immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

In 2009, the metropolitan transportation district supplemental
registration fee was enacted to eliminate a large budget gap due to
mismanagement and the Great Recession. Since 2009, this fee has cost
hard-working New Yorkers approximately $724 million. The surcharge
increased fees by 5% for licenses and permits and increased the cost
of automobile registrations by $25 for every New Yorker in the MTA
region whether or not they even used the MTA system. This is a
regressive cost for New Yorkers that is making it harder to live and
do business in our state. Repealing this fee would save New Yorkers
approximately $181 million annually.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

This is a new bill.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

When fully implemented this bill will save business owners, small
farmers and individuals who drive our economy an estimated $ 181
million annually in taxes.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
