BILL NUMBER:S6721

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general municipal law, in relation
to the sale, lease and transfer to certain municipal corporations of
certain public lands

PURPOSE: Allows school districts, board of cooperative educational
services, the State of New York, or the government of the United State
and any agency or department thereof, to acquire or lease real
property under the provisions of subdivision (a) of Section 72-h of
the General Municipal Law.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Subdivision (a) of Section 72-h of
the General Municipal Law is amended to include school districts,
board of cooperative educational services, the State of New York, or
the government of the United State and any agency or department
thereof as entities which may acquire or lease real property provided
in this Section.

Section 2. Provides for an immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:Section 72-h of the General Municipal Law provides that
the supervisors of a county, the town board of a town, the board of
trustees of a village, the board of fire commissioners of a fire
district, the board of estimate of a city, or if there be none the
local legislative body of such city, and, in a city having a
population of one million or more, the mayor, subject to the
disapproval by the council within thirty days following receipt of
notice of approval of the mayor, may sell, transfer or lease to or
exchange with any municipal corporation or municipal corporations,
school district, board of cooperative educational services, fire
district, the State of New York, or the government of the United
States and any agency or department thereof, any real property owned
by such county, town, village, fire district or city. However, the law
limits the ability to acquire or lease real property owned by an
entity listed above to only municipal corporations and fire districts.
This legislation would allow school districts, board of cooperative
educational services, the State of New York, or the government of the
United States and any agency thereof to acquire or lease real property
owned by a county, town, village, fire district or city. This would
benefit school districts, for example, by allowing them to receive
land at no cost from another municipal entity to help support school
district activities.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
