Introduced  by  M.  of  A.  O'DONNELL  --  read once and referred to the
  Committee on Small Business

AN ACT to amend the administrative code of the  city  of  New  York,  in
  relation to enacting the "small business survival act"

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

  Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as
the "small business survival act".
  S 2. Legislative intent. The legislature finds that the small business
sector  of  the  city  of New York remains vulnerable at a time when New
York city is more dependent than ever on small business for  job  growth
and  revenues. The New York city commercial rental market has been nega-
tively influenced by speculators for such an  extended  period  of  time
that  the interest of small businesses and job creation, and the broader
general economic interest of the city, are being harmed. An unacceptable
number of established small businesses are being forced out of  business
solely  as  a result of the commercial lease renewal process.  Whereby a
breakdown has taken place in normal processes of bargaining and  freedom
of  contract  has become an illusory concept during the commercial lease
renewal process.   The  current  commercial  rental  market  results  in
unjust,  unreasonable, and oppressive leases for the payment of rent for
commercial space in New York city.  Landlords  continue  to  exact  such
agreements from tenants under stress of prevailing market conditions and
unequal  bargaining  power,  without  any  tenants'  rights to allow for
bargaining in good faith to arrive at fair and reasonable  lease  terms.
The  absence of legal protection for the interests of commercial tenants
in the lease renewal process has unnecessarily accelerated  the  closing
of  small businesses and resulted in lost jobs, lost tax revenues caused
higher inflation and cost of living rates, decreased job growth opportu-
nities for New Yorkers and community instability. It is  the  intent  of
the legislature, through this legislation, to give small businesses some

AN ACT to amend the administrative code of the  city  of  New  York,  in
  relation to enacting the "small business survival act"

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

  Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as
the "small business survival act".
  S 2. Legislative intent. The legislature finds that the small business
sector  of  the  city  of New York remains vulnerable at a time when New
York city is more dependent than ever on small business for  job  growth
and  revenues. The New York city commercial rental market has been nega-
tively influenced by speculators for such an  extended  period  of  time
that  the interest of small businesses and job creation, and the broader
general economic interest of the city, are being harmed. An unacceptable
number of established small businesses are being forced out of  business
solely  as  a result of the commercial lease renewal process.  Whereby a
breakdown has taken place in normal processes of bargaining and  freedom
of  contract  has become an illusory concept during the commercial lease
renewal process.   The  current  commercial  rental  market  results  in
unjust,  unreasonable, and oppressive leases for the payment of rent for
commercial space in New York city.  Landlords  continue  to  exact  such
agreements from tenants under stress of prevailing market conditions and
unequal  bargaining  power,  without  any  tenants'  rights to allow for
bargaining in good faith to arrive at fair and reasonable  lease  terms.
The  absence of legal protection for the interests of commercial tenants
in the lease renewal process has unnecessarily accelerated  the  closing
of  small businesses and resulted in lost jobs, lost tax revenues caused
