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.
