BILL NUMBER:S7732

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public authorities law, in
relation to certain contracts of the New York city school construction
authority; and to amend chapter 738 of the laws of 1988, amending the
administrative code of the city of New York, the public authorities
law and other laws relating to establishing the New York city school
construction authority, in relation to extending certain provisions of
such chapter relating to certain contracts of the New York city school
construction authority

PURPOSE: Extends the New York City School Construction Authority's
exemption from Section 101 of the General Municipal Law (known as the
Wicks Law), which is set to expire on June 30, 2014, for an additional
five (5) years.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one of the bill amends Subdivision 1 of Section 1735 of the
public authorities law to extend the exemption of the New York City
School Construction Authority's ("SCA") from section 101 of the
General Municipal Law to June 30, 2019.

Section two of the bill amends Section 19 of Chapter 738 of the Laws
of 1988 to extend the exemption of the SCA from Section 101 of the
General Municipal Law to June 30, 2019.

Section three of the bill provides that the Act shall take effect
immediately and shall be deemed to have been in full force and effect
on and after July 1, 2014.

JUSTIFICATION: The SCA has been exempt from Section 101 of the
General Municipal Law since 1988. The exemption is necessary to
ongoing construction projects that the city's school construction
authority is undertaking to address overcrowding in public schools. If
the exemption lapses, the school construction authority will have to
suspend its operations and project labor agreements with the
construction unions. This disruption will delay the creation of new
public school seats and leave New York City school children in
overcrowded public schools.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

BUDGET IMPLICATIONS: None noted.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and shall be
deemed to have been in full force and effect on and after July 1,
2014.
