 Introduced  by M. of A. CARROLL -- read once and referred to the Commit-
   tee on Corporations, Authorities and Commissions
 
 AN ACT to amend the public authorities law, in relation to enacting  the
   metropolitan transportation authority open data act
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. This act shall be known and may be cited as the  "metropol-
 itan transportation authority open data act".
   §  2.  Legislative findings. The legislature finds that the release of
 data, in a format that is easily accessible, understandable  and  usable
 by  the  public, can increase civic engagement with government. In addi-
 tion, in an authority providing a public service and operating an enter-
 prise as vast as that  of  the  Metropolitan  Transportation  Authority,
 transparency  in data is in the public's best interest. It is the intent
 of the legislature that the authority and its  subsidiaries  release  as
 much  data as is feasible in open formats, so that the public can access
 that data, analyze it, and engage with the  authority  with  suggestions
 and solutions to improve its operations.
   §  3.  The  public  authorities law is amended by adding a new section
 1279-j to read as follows:
   § 1279-J. OPEN DATA  REPORTING.  1.  THE  METROPOLITAN  TRANSPORTATION
 AUTHORITY  AND  ITS  SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILIATES, INCLUDING THE NEW YORK
 CITY TRANSIT AUTHORITY AND THE TRIBOROUGH BRIDGE AND  TUNNEL  AUTHORITY,
 SHALL  FULLY  COMPLY  WITH THE PROVISIONS OF EXECUTIVE ORDER 95 OF 2013,
 "USING TECHNOLOGY TO PROMOTE TRANSPARENCY, IMPROVE  GOVERNMENT  PERFORM-
 ANCE  AND  ENHANCE  CITIZEN  ENGAGEMENT," AND SHALL PROVIDE THE NEW YORK
 STATE OFFICE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SERVICES AND LEGISLATURE ALL DATA
 AS DEFINED IN THIS SECTION.
   2. FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS SECTION, THE FOLLOWING  TERMS  SHALL  HAVE
 THE FOLLOWING MEANINGS:

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