S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 7766 I N S E N A T E February 18, 2020 ___________ Introduced by Sen. FLANAGAN -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Transportation AN ACT to amend the public authorities law, in relation to the board submitting a recommendation regarding the central business district toll amounts to the legislature and recommending a privacy risk plan THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature finds and declares that legislative accountability is a core element in any democratic polity. The commuter tax legislation passed last year tried to sidestep that accountability by passing off the burden of establishing the commuter tax rates to unelected bureaucrats and announcing such rates the week after the 2020 election. This legislation would restore the crucial element of legislative accountability by requiring not only that the legislature approve any rate established for the commuter tax, but also conditioning that approval be made before the upcoming election. § 2. Subdivisions 2 and 3 of section 553-k of the public authorities law, as added by section 8 of subpart A of part ZZZ of chapter 59 of the laws of 2019, are amended to read as follows: 2. The board shall make a recommendation regarding the central busi- ness district toll amounts to be established pursuant to article forty- four-C of the vehicle and traffic law, which shall include a variable- pricing structure, no [sooner] LATER than [November] OCTOBER fifteenth, two thousand twenty [and no later than December thirty-first, two thou- sand twenty, or no later than thirty days before a central business district tolling program is initiated, whichever is later]. Such recom- mendation shall be submitted to the LEGISLATURE FOR APPROVAL. THE LEGISLATURE SHALL VOTE ON SUCH RECOMMENDATION BY JANUARY THIRTY-FIRST, TWO THOUSAND TWENTY-ONE. THE AUTHORITY SHALL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO ESTAB- LISH CENTRAL BUSINESS TOLL DISTRICT AMOUNTS IF APPROVED BY THE LEGISLA- TURE. IF APPROVED BY THE LEGISLATURE, SUCH RECOMMENDATION SHALL BE SUBMITTED TO THE board of the Triborough bridge and tunnel authority for consideration before the Triborough bridge and tunnel authority board EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
