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 hereby finds and declares that volunteer
fire companies and volunteer ambulance companies perform vital  services
for  the municipalities they serve. These not-for-profit volunteer emer-
gency response organizations serve a meaningful public purpose by  help-
ing  to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of our citizens. Further,
these organizations work collaboratively  with  municipal  officials  in
their  respective localities and help to reduce the burdens on our local
governments.
  The records of volunteer fire companies and volunteer ambulance compa-
nies are important since they  indicate  the  relationship,  rights  and
responsibilities with respect to the communities they serve. And, proper
records  management assists municipalities and emergency response organ-
izations with their legal obligations under the general  municipal  law.
In addition, these records make appropriate information available to the
public  and  to  municipal  officials with respect to fire and emergency
services, and also reflect the historical development of the communities
served by  such  volunteer  fire  and  ambulance  companies.  For  these
reasons, the legislature hereby further finds and declares that not-for-
profit volunteer fire companies and volunteer ambulance companies should
be  eligible  for  the  records  management improvement grant program in
order to help them operate more effectively and efficiently in our local
communities.
  S 2. Subdivisions 1 and 3 of section 57.17 of the  arts  and  cultural
affairs law, as added by chapter 737 of the laws of 1987, are amended to
read as follows:
  1.  "Local  government"  means any county, city, town, village, school
district, board of cooperative  educational  services,  district  corpo-
