BILL NUMBER:S902

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the labor law, in relation to the project notification fee
imposed for asbestos removal

PURPOSE:
Labor law section 904 subdivision 2 establishes a significant fee when
asbestos abatement is performed. These costs are a significant
unfunded mandate that burdens local governments in remedying unsafe
buildings.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill amends § 904 of the Labor Law, waiving the
asbestos project notification fee for local governments that are
abating or demolishing structures that are a public nuisance or
unsafe, at a cost that exceeds the resulting value of the property.

In addition, section 1 of the bill amends § 904 of the Labor Law,
waiving the asbestos project notification fee for projects being
undertaken by a Land Bank or pursuant to an Urban Renewal or
Municipal Redevelopment Plan.

Section 2 sets the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Labor Law § 904 imposes a significant unfunded mandate on local
governments that are abating unsafe buildings or properties that
are a Public nuisance. In addition, this unfunded mandate
presents a significant impediment to local government efforts at
remediating blight and redevelopment their communities.
Consequently, the waiver of the project notification fee will
help foster the revitalization of New York's older cities and
villages. It will also help local governments protect that
public's health, safety, and welfare.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S7234 (2012)

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
