Introduced  by  Sen.  BOYLE  -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Education

AN ACT to validate certain acts of the Islip Union Free school  district
  with regard to certain capital improvement projects

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds  that  the
Islip  Union  Free school district approved thirteen capital improvement
projects which are designated  as  project  numbers  0003-12,  0011-007,
0011-008,  0003-013,  0007-009,  0007-010, 0007-012, 0011-009, 0002-008,
0003-014, 0007-011, 0008-010, and 0011-010. In  addition,  the  projects
were  eligible for certain state aid. The legislature further finds that
due to ministerial error, the required filing of the final cost  reports
for  such  projects  were  not  made by such district in a timely manner
making the district ineligible for certain aid. The legislature  further
finds  that  without  such  aid,  the  capital improvement projects will
impose an additional, unanticipated hardship on district taxpayers.
  S 2. All the acts done and proceedings heretofore  had  and  taken  or
caused to be had or taken by the Islip Union Free school district and by
all  its  officers or agents relating to or in connection with a certain
final cost report to be filed with the state  education  department  for
project   numbers   0003-12,  0011-007,  0011-008,  0003-013,  0007-009,
0007-010, 0007-012, 0011-009, 0002-008,  0003-014,  0007-011,  0008-010,
and  0011-010,  and  all  acts  incidental thereto are hereby legalized,
validated, ratified and confirmed, notwithstanding any failure to comply
with the approval and filing provisions of  the  education  law  or  any
other  law  or  any  other  statutory  authority, rule or regulation, in
relation to any omissions, error, defect, irregularity or illegality  in
such proceedings had and taken, and provided further that any amount due
and  payable  to  the  Islip Union Free school district for school years
prior to the 2015-2016 school year as a result of this act shall be paid
pursuant to the provisions of paragraph c of subdivision  5  of  section
3604 of the education law.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets

AN ACT to amend the state finance law, in relation to  establishing  the
  community restoration fund

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Statement of legislative purpose and findings. The legisla-
ture finds and declares that  New  York's  mortgage  foreclosure  crisis
continues.  Many  New  Yorkers  are  still unable to meet their mortgage
obligations. There are delays in  the  foreclosure  process,  homes  are
sitting  vacant  or  in  a state of ill repair because of drawn out loan
modification and foreclosures, neighborhoods with high concentrations of
foreclosures are losing value and the owners are losing equity.    Fore-
closures  that  were  the  result  of the real estate downturn and great
recession will continue to be a problem within the state.  The  legisla-
ture  finds that it is necessary to create a statewide program to stabi-
lize communities throughout the state by: (i) avoiding foreclosures  and
ameliorating the effects of the mortgage foreclosure crisis; (ii) elimi-
nating  blighted  properties  and  vacant lots that bring down community
values and create attractive nuisances within communities; (iii) restor-
ing property tax income to counties  and  towns;  and  (iv)  maintaining
affordable  housing.    Accordingly  the  legislature hereby creates the
community restoration fund.
  S 2. Definitions. As used in this act, the following words and phrases
shall have the following meanings:
  1. "Community development financial institution" or  "CDFI"  means  an
organization  located in this state which has been certified as a commu-
nity development financial institution by the federal community develop-
ment financial institutions fund, as established pursuant to  12  U.S.C.
4701 et seq.

closures  that  were  the  result  of the real estate downturn and great
recession will continue to be a problem within the state.  The  legisla-
ture  finds that it is necessary to create a statewide program to stabi-
lize communities throughout the state by: (i) avoiding foreclosures  and
ameliorating the effects of the mortgage foreclosure crisis; (ii) elimi-
nating  blighted  properties  and  vacant lots that bring down community
values and create attractive nuisances within communities; (iii) restor-
ing property tax income to counties  and  towns;  and  (iv)  maintaining
affordable  housing.    Accordingly  the  legislature hereby creates the
community restoration fund.
  S 2. Definitions. As used in this act, the following words and phrases
shall have the following meanings:

Introduced  by  Sen.  COMRIE -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Finance

AN ACT to amend the state finance law, in relation to  the  purchase  of
  green cleaning and other custodial products

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Short title. This law shall be known and may  be  cited  as
the "Greening Our Cleaning Act".
  S  2.  Statement  of  findings and purpose. The legislature finds that
there are environmentally preferable alternatives to the  products  that
we  commonly  use  for  routine  tasks, such as cleaning and maintaining
interior building finishes. Such alternatives  are  most  beneficial  to
those  who apply them and those who occupy buildings where such products
are used. In addition to the federal government, a number of  state  and
local jurisdictions have taken steps to purchase environmentally prefer-
able or "green" cleaning products.
  The  legislature finds that the purchase and use of many such environ-
mentally preferable cleaning alternatives will result in improved indoor
air quality and enhanced environmental health.
  S 3. The state finance law is amended by adding a new section  169  to
read as follows:
  S  169.  GREEN CLEANING PRODUCTS.   1. GENERAL DEFINITIONS. AS USED IN
THIS SECTION:
  (A) "AIR FRESHENER" MEANS ANY PRODUCT INCLUDING, BUT NOT  LIMITED  TO,
SPRAYS,  WICKS,  POWDERS,  BLOCKS,  GELS  AND CRYSTALS, DESIGNED FOR THE
PURPOSE OF MASKING ODORS, OR FRESHENING, CLEANING, SCENTING OR DEODORIZ-
ING THE AIR. THIS TERM SHALL NOT INCLUDE PRODUCTS THAT ARE USED  ON  THE
HUMAN  BODY,  PRODUCTS  THAT  FUNCTION PRIMARILY AS CLEANING PRODUCTS OR
DISINFECTANT  PRODUCTS  CLAIMING  TO  DEODORIZE  BY  KILLING  GERMS   ON
SURFACES.

State Senator Patty Ritchie is encouraging St. Lawrence County residents to join in the effort to clean up the North Country and stop the spread of disease-carrying mosquitoes by taking part in her free waste tire disposal events.

Taking place on April 30th and May 14th, at the events residents will be permitted to dispose of up to 8 tires, with the usual $15 fee being waived.

“Waste tires aren’t just unsightly, they also have the potential to attract disease-carrying mosquitoes that can pose very serious threats to public health,” said Senator Ritchie.
