declares there is a need to create a New  York  state  women's  suffrage

sary  of  women's suffrage, which will take place between the years 2017

the accomplishment of women's suffrage and the central role of New York-

while  also helping shape the future to ensure a more just and equitable
society for all. The legislature finds that the creation of a  New  York
state  women's  suffrage  100th  anniversary commemoration commission is
necessary to bring together persons qualified by  experience  and/or  by
powers vested in them by their offices to coordinate and facilitate such
a multi-year event.

commission; created. (a) There  is  hereby  created  a  temporary  state
commission  to  be  known  as the "New York state women's suffrage 100th
