Introduced  by  Sen.  PARKER -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Commerce, Economic  Devel-
  opment and Small Business

AN  ACT  to  amend the economic development law, in relation to creating
  the Empire State baseball trails program

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

  Section  1.  The  economic  development law is amended by adding a new
article 5-F to read as follows:
                               ARTICLE 5-F
                  EMPIRE STATE BASEBALL TRAILS PROGRAM
SECTION 181-F. LEGISLATIVE INTENT.
        181-G. DEFINITIONS.
        181-H. GENERAL FUNCTIONS, POWERS AND DUTIES OF THE COMMISSIONER.
  S 181-F. LEGISLATIVE INTENT. THE LEGISLATURE RECOGNIZES  THAT  PROFES-
SIONAL BASEBALL HAS HISTORICALLY PLAYED AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE ECONOM-
IC AND CULTURAL LIFE OF THE STATE. THE PUBLIC IS GENERALLY FAMILIAR WITH
THE  TWO  MAJOR LEAGUE TEAMS IN NEW YORK CITY, AS WELL AS WITH THE BASE-
BALL HALL OF FAME IN COOPERSTOWN. THERE IS MUCH  LESS  PUBLIC  AWARENESS
THAT  NEW  YORK  STATE  IS  ALSO THE HOME OF THIRTEEN PROFESSIONAL MINOR
LEAGUE AND INDEPENDENT LEAGUE TEAMS SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE STATE.  GREAT-
ER PUBLIC AWARENESS OF THESE TEAMS AND  THEIR  GAME  SCHEDULES  HAS  THE
POTENTIAL  TO  SIGNIFICANTLY ADD TO THE STATE'S TOURISM TRADE. THE MINOR
LEAGUE AND INDEPENDENT LEAGUE TEAMS ARE SMALL BUSINESSES THEMSELVES, AND
COULD HELP TO DRAW IN-STATE AND OUT-OF-STATE TOURISTS TO  THEIR  RESPEC-
TIVE  AREAS  OF NEW YORK, THEREBY INCREASING HOTEL, RESTAURANT AND OTHER
TOURIST RELATED SMALL BUSINESSES. IT IS, THEREFORE, THE INTENT  OF  THIS
LEGISLATURE  TO HAVE CREATED A PROGRAM WHICH WILL SYSTEMATICALLY PROMOTE
NEW YORK MINOR LEAGUE AND  INDEPENDENT  LEAGUE  BASEBALL  AS  A  TOURIST
ATTRACTION,  BY ESTABLISHING A BASEBALL TRAIL PROGRAM. IT IS THE FURTHER

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