AN  ACT  to  amend the tax law and the state finance law, in relation to
  gifts for the support of the New York state council on the arts

  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 determines that, due to
severe budgetary constraints, the amount of state  funds  available  for
the  support  of the New York state council on the arts has been sharply
diminished over the past few years.  This decrease in support has had  a
devastating  effect  upon  many  of New York's cultural institutions, as
well as many related or dependent businesses and employees. Accordingly,
the legislature hereby finds and determines that taxpayers of the  state
of  New  York  should  have  the  opportunity  to use the New York state
personal income tax form as a mechanism for  making  voluntary  contrib-
utions  for the support of the New York state council on the arts. It is
the intent of the  legislature  that  any  funds  so  contributed  shall
supplement  and  not  offset  or diminish in any way the amount of funds
made available to the New York state council on  the  arts  pursuant  to
annual budget appropriations.
  §  2.  The tax law is amended by adding a new section 630-g to read as
follows:
  § 630-G. GIFT TO THE ARTS FUND. EFFECTIVE FOR ANY TAX YEAR  COMMENCING
ON  OR  AFTER  JANUARY  FIRST,  TWO THOUSAND NINETEEN, AN INDIVIDUAL MAY
ELECT TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE ARTS FUND CREATED PURSUANT TO  SECTION  NINE-
TY-SEVEN-YYYY  OF  THE STATE FINANCE LAW FOR THE SUPPORT OF THE NEW YORK
STATE COUNCIL ON THE ARTS. SUCH  CONTRIBUTION  SHALL  BE  IN  ANY  WHOLE
DOLLAR  AMOUNT AND SHALL NOT REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF TAX OWED BY SUCH INDI-
VIDUAL. THE COMMISSIONER SHALL INCLUDE SPACE ON THE PERSONAL INCOME  TAX
RETURN  TO  ENABLE A TAXPAYER TO MAKE SUCH CONTRIBUTION. NOTWITHSTANDING

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