AN  ACT to amend the general municipal law, in relation to allowing not-
  for-profits to make purchases through county contracts

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

  Section  1.  The  general  municipal  law  is  amended by adding a new
section 109-c to read as follows:
  S 109-C. PURCHASES THROUGH COUNTY CONTRACTS BY CERTAIN  NOT-FOR-PROFIT
CORPORATIONS.  NOT-FOR-PROFIT  CORPORATIONS  THAT PROVIDE A SERVICE TO A
COUNTY ARE AUTHORIZED TO MAKE PURCHASES  OR  TO  CONTRACT  FOR  SERVICES
NECESSARY  FOR THE PERFORMANCE OF SUCH SERVICE TO THE COUNTY, OTHER THAN
SERVICES SUBJECT TO ARTICLE EIGHT OR ANY PROVISIONS OF THE LABOR LAW AND
OTHER THAN PURCHASES OF MOTOR FUEL, DIESEL  MOTOR  FUEL  OR  CIGARETTES,
THROUGH  THE  COUNTY  WHICH  THE NOT-FOR-PROFIT HAS A CONTRACT WITH. THE
COUNTY  MAY  ESTABLISH  LIMITATIONS  WITH  RESPECT  TO  COMMODITIES  AND
SERVICES AND IMPOSE SUCH OTHER APPROPRIATE CONDITIONS UPON PURCHASING AS
DEEMED  NECESSARY  BY THE CHIEF FISCAL OFFICER OF THE COUNTY IN ORDER TO
PROTECT THE COUNTY'S OWN PURCHASING INTERESTS; AND  SUCH  NOT-FOR-PROFIT
CORPORATION  SHALL MAKE ANY PURCHASE PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION IN ITS OWN
NAME AND ACCEPT SOLE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY PAYMENT DUE  TO  THE  VENDOR
AND SUCH NOT-FOR-PROFIT CORPORATION AND VENDOR SHALL EACH BE RESPONSIBLE
FOR  ANY  TAX  DUE  WITH  RESPECT TO THE PURCHASES BY THE NOT-FOR-PROFIT
CORPORATION. NOTHING IN THIS SECTION SHALL BE CONSTRUED AS ALTERING  ANY
TAX  EXEMPTION AFFORDED TO THE NOT-FOR-PROFIT CORPORATION OR AS CREATING
A PRINCIPAL/AGENT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN  THE  COUNTY  AND  NOT-FOR-PROFIT
CORPORATION.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

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