LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION memorializing Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to
proclaim June 2015 as African American Music Appreciation Month in the
State of New York

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body, in keeping with its
time-honored traditions, to recognize and pay tribute to those who seek
to preserve and celebrate the musical heritage of our State and Nation;
and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to memorial-
ize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim June 2015 as African American
Music Appreciation Month in the State of New York, in conjunction with
the observance of National African-American Music Appreciation Month;
and
WHEREAS, African American Music Appreciation Month is an annual cele-
bration of African American music in the United States, commemorated
with special performances and multi-day festivals in musical genres
ranging from soul to jazz to gospel throughout the nation; and
WHEREAS, Observation of Black Music Month was initiated on June 7,
1979, by President Jimmy Carter, who decreed that June would be the
month of black music; since then, American presidents have continued the
practice and, for each year of his term, President Barack Obama has
announced the observance under a new title, African American Music
Appreciation Month; and
WHEREAS, America's diverse musical heritage is a reflection of the
creativity and optimism of our Nation; during African American Music
Appreciation Month, we celebrate the breathtaking talents and creativity
of African American vocalists, instrumentalists, and composers whose
achievements have shaped our national culture and enriched our communi-
ties; and
WHEREAS, For the entire span of our Nation's history, African Ameri-
cans have created music that communicates across racial and social boun-
daries, giving voice to the full range of human experience; and
WHEREAS, During African Americans' involuntary servitude, music often
served as a means of expressing the inexpressible; when facing the
cruelty of slavery and injustice, spirituals brought comfort to troubled
souls; and
WHEREAS, These timeless declarations of hope and faith evolved into
the more modern genres of gospel, blues, ragtime, and jazz, expressed in
the musical genius of Scott Joplin, Marian Anderson, Eubie Blake, and
Mahalia Jackson; during the Civil Rights era, African American musicians
such as Duke Ellington, Muddy Waters, and Ruth Brown conveyed the strug-
gles of their communities while bringing people of all backgrounds
together; today, this music continues to inspire America's citizens and
advance its creative spirit; and
WHEREAS, Throughout the course of American history, black musicians
have used their great talents to share the richness of the African Amer-
ican experience and to develop a uniquely American style of music
enjoyed throughout the world; in June 2015, we honor the pioneers of
African American music along with today's artists who continue their
legacy; and
WHEREAS, From "Glory", the winning best song in the movie "Selma" to
the historic success of Jay-Z and Beyonce, to the continual social
impact displayed by artists such as Stevie Wonder and Prince who
performed in Baltimore, Maryland, remind us that Black lives matter; and
WHEREAS, A local component, the Harlem Renaissance, was the name given
to the cultural, social, and artistic movement that took place in Harlem

between the end of World War I and the middle of the 1930s; during this
period, Harlem was a cultural center, drawing black writers, artists,
musicians, photographers, poets, and scholars; and
WHEREAS, The Bronx is home of hip-hop, a cultural movement which
formed during the late 1960s among African American youths residing in
the South Bronx in New York City; hip-hop legends who hail from the
Bronx include KOOL DJ Herc, Grandmaster Melle Mel and Kurtis Blow; in
addition, preparations are being made, led by Rocky Bucano, for a
universal hip-hop museum to be located in the Bronx; and
WHEREAS, Events which provide a means of preserving a part of our rich
American past and which contribute to the community in such noble
endeavors as aforementioned, are held in the highest regard by this
Legislative Body; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim June 2015 as African
American Music Appreciation Month in the State of New York; and be it
further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of New
York.

LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION memorializing Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to
proclaim June 8, 2015, as Italian American Day in New York State

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body, in keeping with its
time-honored traditions, to recognize celebrations which foster ethnic
pride and enhance the profile of cultural diversity which strengthens
the fabric of the communities of New York State; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to memorial-
ize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim June 8, 2015, as Italian Ameri-
can Day in New York State; and
WHEREAS, Italian American Day is a joyous celebration of culture,
civic conviviality and other merriment, held annually throughout the
State of New York, in commemoration of the Republic of Italy's National
Holiday, "Festa Della Repubblica Italiana," Italy's 4th of July; and
WHEREAS, Festa Della Repubblica Italiana, a national holiday in Italy,
marks the day when Italy voted, after World War II and fascism, to
become a democratic republic; and
WHEREAS, Italian American Day celebrates 42 years of the heritage of
Italy's glorious historical past, the wealth of its present, and the
opportunities of its future; and
WHEREAS, This auspicious day provides an opportunity to celebrate the
significant contributions of Italian Americans so that all people may
know and appreciate Italian history and traditions, and of the role
Italian Americans have played, and will continue to play, in our socie-
ty; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim June 8, 2015, as Itali-
an American Day in New York State; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-

LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION memorializing Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to
proclaim June 19, 2015, as Juneteenth Day in New York State

WHEREAS, Juneteenth is the oldest-known celebration of the ending of
slavery; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to memorialize Governor
Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim June 19, 2015, as Juneteenth Day in New York
State; and
WHEREAS, This year marks the 150th Anniversary of celebrating June-
teenth which began on June 19, 1865, the date Union soldiers under the
command of Major General George Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas,
with the news that the Civil War had ended and that all slaves were
free; and
WHEREAS, One of General Granger's first orders was Order No. 3 which
was read aloud to the people of Texas and which stated: "The people of
Texas are informed that in accordance with a Proclamation from the Exec-
utive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an abso-
lute equity of rights and rights of property between masters and former
slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that
between employer and free laborer."; and
WHEREAS, Many of the newly-freed slaves stayed in their locations to
learn about the new employer/employee relationship between themselves
and their former masters, while others chose to reach family members in
other states, and still others chose to move to the Northern states; and
WHEREAS, Settling into new areas as free men and women brought on new
realities and challenges of establishing a heretofore non-existent
status for Black people in America; and
WHEREAS, The celebration of Juneteenth allowed freed slaves and their
descendants to recount the memories of that great day in 1865 when free-
dom was proclaimed, and also served as a release from the pressures of
settling into new territories; and
WHEREAS, Juneteenth has been known by a variety of names, including
"Jun-Jun," "Freedom Day," "Emancipation Day" and "Emancipation Cele-
bration," but regardless of what the day is called, it is a day to cele-
brate freedom; and
WHEREAS, A wide range of activities became traditional at Juneteenth
celebrations, including barbecuing, baseball, rodeos, fishing and drink-
ing strawberry soda; and
WHEREAS, While Juneteenth is a time for celebration, it is also a time
for reflection, education and self-improvement; celebration participants
listen to elders recount the past, attend prayer services, and learn
from educational speakers; and
WHEREAS, In some instances, Juneteenth participants were not permitted
to use public parks to hold the celebrations; activities sometimes took
place on church grounds or in rural areas until more African Americans
owned land and donated it for the festivities; one such park is Booker
T. Washington Park in Mexia, Texas; and
WHEREAS, In 1980, the State of Texas was the first state to recognize
Juneteenth as an official state holiday, through the efforts of Al
Edwards, an African American State Legislator; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim June 19, 2015, as June-
teenth Day in New York State; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of New
York.

LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION urging the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills to
donate all revenue made by military sectors

WHEREAS, Public documents were uncovered detailing marketing contracts
between 2011 and 2014 totaling $377,000 between the New Jersey Army
National Guard and the New York Jets; and
WHEREAS, According to National Guard spokesman Patrick Daugherty,
promoting and increasing the public's understanding and appreciation of
military service in the New Jersey Army National Guard increases the
propensity for service in our ranks, referring to the $377,000 the Jets
received from the Jersey Guard between 2011-2014; and
WHEREAS, In addition, according to Christopher Baxter and Jonathan
Salant of NJ.com, the New Jersey Army National Guard and the Department
of Defense paid the Jets a total of $377,000 from 2011 to 2014 for the
salutes and other advertising, citing federal contracts; and
WHEREAS, Between 2011-2012 stipulating that teams would be paid sums
ranging from $60,000-$1 million each (in federal taxpayer money) to
pause before the start of games and salute the city's "hometown heroes";
and
WHEREAS, These are expressed as efforts to recruit but in no way has
been proven effective; and
WHEREAS, The New York Jets weren't the only team accepting tax dollars
in exchange for access to football; the Falcons, Ravens, Bills, Bengals,
Browns, Cowboys, Packers, Colts, Chiefs, Dolphins, Vikings, Steelers and
Rams have also accepted the money; and
WHEREAS, The New York Jets and 13 other NFL teams took $5.4 million in
taxpayer money between 2011 and 2014 to give shout outs to America's war
heroes, most of which came from the National Guard; and
WHEREAS, According to a NJ.com breakdown, other teams that received
taxpayer funds include the Cincinnati Bengals ($138,960), Cleveland
Browns ($22,500), the Green Bay Packers ($600,000), Pittsburgh Steelers
($36,000), Minnesota Vikings ($605,000), Atlanta Falcons ($1,049,500),
Buffalo Bills ($679,000), Dallas Cowboys ($62,500), Miami Dolphins
($20,000), St. Louis Rams ($60,000), Kansas City Chiefs ($250,000),
Indianapolis Colts ($620,000), and Baltimore Ravens ($884,500); and
WHEREAS, If these teams truly want to honor our veterans and service
members, they should be making these patriotic overtures out of grati-
tude for free; few fans know the defense department is funneling taxpay-
er money into the NFL in exchange for veteran tributes; and
WHEREAS, The public believes they're doing it as a public service or a
sense of patriotism; and
WHEREAS, The Giants, Mets and Yankees did not receive military money,
but have all staged events to honor the United States Armed Forces;
money came as part of advertising contracts; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
urge the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills to donate all revenue made
by military sectors; and be it further
RESOLVED, That copies of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills.

BILL NUMBER:S2651 REVISED 1/30/15

TITLE OF BILL:

An act to amend the economic development law and the state finance
law, in relation to certain requirements for and restrictions on
economic development grant recipients

PURPOSE:

To improve the existing process of how New York State economic
development grants are awarded to prospective future recipients

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 states that this act may be known and cited as the "Jobs
Protection Act".

Section 2 adds a new paragraph (c) to subdivision 19 of section 100 of
the economic development law.

Section 3 adds a new section 11-a to the state finance law.

Section 4 provides the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

It is critical that New York State do more through the process of
awarding economic development grants to ensure that taxpayer monies
are being invested wisely for job creation.

The Jobs Protection Act provides greater integrity to economic
development grant awards by focusing on investing in companies that
have a solid environmental record, worker protection record, and are
committed to paying wages that can truly support individuals and their
families. Additionally, the Jobs Protection Act includes an important
clawback provision.

Clawback provisions are common and necessary for a majority of
business transactions. Each year, New York State offers tens of
millions of dollars in grant funding to foster economic growth and
attract new businesses. However, in cases when these same businesses
decide to leave New York State or reduce their New York State employee
base, taxpayers may still be left paying the bills.

This legislation would provide that grantees shall not reduce the
number of New York State employees upon receiving financial assistance
from the State or up to five years after receiving such assistance,
unless the full amount of the grant and a penalty is repaid to the
State. This clawback mechanism is designed to protect taxpayers from
continuing to fund businesses that have moved their workforce out of
New York State.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

This is a New Bill.


FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.
