 AN ACT to amend the parks, recreation and historic preservation law,  in
   relation  to  establishing  the  "New  York state two hundred fiftieth
   commemoration act"; to amend the state finance  law,  in  relation  to
   establishing  the  New  York  state two hundred fiftieth commemoration

   Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and cited as the  "New
 York state two hundred fiftieth commemoration act".
   §  2.  Legislative findings and intent. The legislature finds that New
 York played an immense role in the lead up to and execution of the Amer-
 ican Revolution during the period of 1774-1783,  and  was  the  site  of
 several  important battles, skirmishes and other events that were inter-
 nationally significant during the Revolutionary era. The American  Revo-
 lution  itself  was  imperfect and many, including women, African Ameri-
 cans, and Native Americans, did not benefit from its ideals  of  liberty
 and  freedom.  However,  the struggle to fully realize the ideals of the
 Revolution has continued over the past 250 years as is  evident  in  New
 York's  leading role in such revolutionary civil rights movements as the
 women's rights and abolitionist movements, the underground railroad, and
 the LGBTQ movement.
   The legislature further finds that the Bicentennial  of  the  American
 Revolution in 1976 drew international attention and attendance at events
 and  sites  across  New  York and the nation and had a lasting impact on
 historical education and public history.  The legislature further  finds
 that  the  commemoration  of the 250th anniversary of the American Revo-
 lution should also be an occasion for recognition of  New  York's  vital
 role  in the Revolution itself as well as the ongoing struggle of margi-
