                               ___________

Introduced  by  Sens.  FUNKE,  GALLIVAN,  KAMINSKY,  MARCHIONE,  MURPHY,
  O'MARA, RITCHIE, ROBACH, SERINO -- read twice and ordered printed, and
  when printed to be committed to the Committee on Local Government

AN ACT to amend the general municipal law  and  the  education  law,  in
  relation  to requiring the state to fund certain programs mandated for
  municipal corporations and school districts; and to amend  the  educa-
  tion law, in relation to the effect of mandates on school districts

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

  Section 1. Legislative intent. State mandated programs,  unlike  local
service  decisions,  place  local  taxpayers  and local officials in the
position of paying for services that they do not control.  Increasingly,
however,  the state has set local priorities and forced municipal taxing
decisions by mandating services, programs, and standards. As  a  result,
many  local  governments  and  school  districts are today in an acutely
difficult fiscal situation.
  Thus, in order to prevent irresponsible state  actions  which  prevent
localities  from  making  their  own decisions, and which force unwanted
local property tax increases, it  is  necessary  to  ensure  that  state
mandates  will  not  be forced on localities and school districts unless
they are adequately funded.
  § 2. The general municipal law is amended by adding a new  section  25
to read as follows:
  §  25.  FUNDING  OF MANDATES. 1. DEFINITIONS. AS USED IN THIS SECTION,
THE FOLLOWING TERMS SHALL HAVE THE FOLLOWING MEANINGS UNLESS THE CONTEXT
SHALL OTHERWISE REQUIRE:
  (A) "MANDATE" MEANS:
  (I) ANY STATE LAW, RULE, OR REGULATION WHICH CREATES A NEW PROGRAM  OR
REQUIRES  A  HIGHER  LEVEL  OF  SERVICE  FOR AN EXISTING PROGRAM WHICH A
MUNICIPAL CORPORATION IS REQUIRED TO PROVIDE; OR

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD04177-01-7
