Statute of Local Governments (SLG)

Effective date provisions of bills requiring re-enactment and approval. 1. Where a bill introduced in the legislature would have the effect of repealing, diminishing, impairing or suspending a power granted by this statute of local governments and thus would be ineffective unless re-enacted and approved in the following calendar year as provided by paragraph one of subdivision (b) of section two of article nine of the constitution, the effective date provision thereof shall read substantially as follows: "This act shall take effect (specify effective date in event of re-enactment by legislature and approval by governor in next calendar year), provided that it is approved by the governor in accordance with paragraph one of subdivision (b) of section two of article nine of the constitution and provided that it is re-enacted by the legislature and approved by the governor in the next calendar year in accordance with such paragraph."

  2. Where a statute enacted in one year is introduced in the legislature in the next calendar year for re-enactment by the legislature and approval thereafter by the governor in accordance with paragraph one of subdivision (b) of section two of article nine of the constitution, the effective date provision thereof shall refer to the enactment in the previous year and shall, in addition, provide substantially as follows: "This act shall take effect (set forth the effective date), provided that it is approved by the governor in accordance with paragraph one of subdivision (b) of section two of article nine of the constitution."
