  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-

  Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature finds that  disparity

continuing effects of discrimination on businesses owned  by  minorities

Therefore, it continues to be appropriate for the city of  New  York  to
establish  and  implement reasonable procedures to secure the meaningful
participation of minority and women-owned businesses, as well as  emerg-
ing  business enterprises, in its procurement process, including but not
limited to measures already authorized by state  and  local  legislation
and rules and the measures authorized in this act.
  §  2. Paragraph 1 of subdivision i of section 311 of the New York city
charter, as amended by chapter 19 of the laws of  2018,  is  amended  to
read as follows:
  1.  agencies  may  make  procurements  of  goods  [and],  services AND
CONSTRUCTION for amounts not  exceeding  one  [hundred  fifty  thousand]
MILLION  dollars  from  businesses certified [as minority or women-owned
business enterprises] pursuant to section thirteen hundred four  of  the
charter without a formal competitive process.
  §  3.  Subdivision  a  of section 324 of the New York city charter, as
amended by local law number 17 for the year 2004, is amended to read  as
follows:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD11067-01-9
