            CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY

proposing an amendment to article 9 of the constitution, in relation  to
  acts of the legislature having fiscal impact on local governments

  Section  1.  Resolved  (if  the  Senate concur), That article 9 of the
constitution be amended by adding a new section 4 to read as follows:
  S 4. THE LEGISLATURE SHALL PROVIDE STATE FUNDING TO REIMBURSE  CITIES,
COUNTIES,  TOWNS, AND/OR VILLAGES FOR THE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH EXPENDI-
TURES MADE AS A REQUIREMENT FOR ANY LAW, GENERAL OR  SPECIAL,  EFFECTIVE
THE  FIRST  DAY  OF JANUARY SUCCEEDING THE APPROVAL OF THE VOTERS, WHICH
MANDATES THE UNDERTAKING OF A NEW PROGRAM  OR  INCREASES  THE  LEVEL  OF
SERVICE  OF AN EXISTING PROGRAM BY A CITY, COUNTY, TOWN, OR VILLAGE. THE
LEGISLATURE SHALL ESTABLISH PROCEDURES FOR THE ALLOCATION OF FUNDS AMONG
THE CITIES, COUNTIES, TOWNS, AND/OR VILLAGES.
  THIS REQUIREMENT SHALL NOT APPLY WHERE FEDERAL REIMBURSEMENT OR MATCH-
ING FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE AND SUCH PROVISION WOULD  DISQUALIFY  A  MUNICI-
PALITY, OR IMPAIR A MUNICIPALITY'S ABILITY, TO PARTICIPATE IN OR RECEIVE
SUCH  FEDERAL FUNDS. THE LEGISLATURE SHALL, IN ITS DISCRETION, DETERMINE
IF STATE FUNDING SHALL BE PROVIDED  FOR  THE  SUPPORT  OF  SUCH  FEDERAL
PROGRAMS PROVIDED BY A MUNICIPALITY.
  S  2. Resolved (if the Senate concur), That the foregoing amendment be
referred to the first regular legislative session  convening  after  the
next  succeeding  general  election  of members of the assembly, and, in
conformity with  section  1  of  article  19  of  the  constitution,  be
published for three months previous to the time of such election.

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