AN ACT to amend the arts  and  cultural  affairs  law,  in  relation  to
  authorizing  volunteer  fire and ambulance companies to receive grants
  for local government records management improvement

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

  Section  1.  The  legislature  finds that volunteer fire and ambulance
companies perform a vital function for  the  municipalities  which  they
serve,  one  that is essential to the health, safety, and welfare of all
persons within such  municipalities.  Such  functions  are  therefore  a
public purpose. Thus, the public records of volunteer fire and ambulance
companies  are a matter of great importance and concern to the state and
are necessary to the administration of  the  municipalities  which  they
serve.  These  public records document the legal responsibilities of the
volunteer fire and ambulance companies and  the  reciprocal  rights  and
liabilities  of  the  municipalities  which  they serve. These essential
public records provide citizens and other public officials with a  means
of  monitoring the entitlements and obligation of municipalities and the
expenditure of public funds. In addition, such records also reflect  the
historical  development of the communities served by such volunteer fire
and ambulance companies.
  Such records  are  necessary  to  municipalities  in  connection  with
service  award  programs  for volunteer firefighters and volunteer ambu-
lance workers pursuant to articles 11-A,  11-AA,  11-AAA,  and  11-AAAA,
respectively,  of  the  general municipal law. These records are equally
necessary in connection with municipalities' obligations  pertaining  to
volunteer firefighters under article 10 of the general municipal law.

                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
