AN ACT to require financial reports from the New  York  state  broadband
  program office

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

  Section 1. The New York state broadband office shall produce a written
"look back" report on all expenditures between April 13,  2015  and  the
effective  date  of this act. The report shall state in clear detail how
the broadband office has used the $500,000,000 allocated for the New  NY
Broadband  Initiative  in  the  FY2015-2016  Capital Projects Budget, in
addition to the $170,000,000 obtained  from  the  Federal  Communication
Commission's Connect America Fund.
  The report shall include, but not be limited to:
  (a)  the  total  amount of public funds committed and expended by this
program;
  (b) the total amount of private funds committed and expended  by  this
program;
  (c)  the  location  of  each  area  receiving  investments  under this
program, including zip+4 codes;
  (d) planned future investments by both public and private parties; and
  (e) other information as the broadband office deems appropriate.
  The report required under this section shall  be  published  no  later
than 180 days after the effective date of this act.
  §  2. On an annual basis, the broadband office shall produce a written
report on all expenditures of the previous twelve  months.  This  report
shall contain the same criteria as the look back report. The first annu-
al report shall be published no later than one year after the publishing
of the initial look back report required by section one of this act, and
shall continue through January 1, 2022.
