BILL NUMBER:S7666

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the real property tax law, in relation
to conservation easement agreement exemptions for certain towns

PURPOSE: To ensure that the Town of Orchard Park is able to offers its
conservation easement assessment program.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 removes the language stating
that this section of law refer to the latest census, and instead
replaces it with references to the 2000 census.

Section 2 is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Section 491 of the Real Property Tax Law allowed a Town
between 27,600 and 27,700 located within a County of 590,00 and
591,000 on the last Census to offer a conservation easement assessment
program. At the time of that Census, the Town of Orchard Park
qualified as such an entity. However, as a result of the most recent
Census it does not. Changing the language from most recent census to
the 2000 Census ensures that the Town can offer this easement
assessment program now and removes the need to change it in the future
as well.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
