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

  Section  1. Subdivision 1 of section 103 of the general municipal law,
as amended by section 1 of chapter 2 of the laws of 2012, is amended  to
read as follows:
  1. Except as otherwise expressly provided by an act of the legislature
or  by  a  local  law adopted prior to September first, nineteen hundred
fifty-three, all contracts for public work involving an  expenditure  of
more  than  thirty-five  thousand  dollars  and  all  purchase contracts
involving an expenditure of more than twenty thousand dollars, shall  be

subdivision or of any district therein including but not  limited  to  a

the required security after advertisement for sealed bids in the  manner
provided  by this section[,]; provided, however, that purchase contracts
(including contracts  for  service  work,  but  excluding  any  purchase
contracts necessary for the completion of a public works contract pursu-
ant  to  article  eight of the labor law) may be awarded on the basis of
best value, as defined in section one hundred sixty-three of  the  state
finance  law,  to  a responsive and responsible bidder or offerer in the
manner provided by this section except that in a  political  subdivision
other  than  a city with a population of one million inhabitants or more
or any district, board or agency with jurisdiction  exclusively  therein
the  use  of  best  value  for  awarding a purchase contract or purchase
contracts must be authorized by local law or, in the case of a  district

corporation,   school  district  or  board  of  cooperative  educational
services, by rule, regulation or resolution adopted at a public meeting;
PROVIDED FURTHER, HOWEVER, THAT IN THE CITY OF AUBURN, FOR PUBLIC  WORKS
AND  PURCHASE  CONTRACTS  UP  TO  ONE  HUNDRED  THOUSAND  DOLLARS,  SUCH
CONTRACTS MAY BE AWARDED TO THE RESPONSIBLE BIDDER WHOSE BID  IS  WITHIN
FIVE  PERCENT  OF  THE  BID  OF THE LOWEST RESPONSIBLE BIDDER AND IF THE
PRINCIPAL PLACE OF BUSINESS OF SUCH BIDDER IS LOCATED WITHIN THE  COUNTY
OF  CAYUGA.    In  any  case where a responsible bidder's or responsible
offerer's gross price is reducible by an allowance for the value of used
machinery, equipment, apparatus or tools to be traded in by a  political
subdivision,  the  gross  price  shall  be reduced by the amount of such
allowance, for the purpose of determining the  best  value.    In  cases
where  two  or more responsible bidders furnishing the required security
submit identical bids as to price, such officer,  board  or  agency  may
award the contract to any of such bidders. Such officer, board or agency
may,  in  his  or  her  or its discretion, reject all bids or offers and
readvertise for new bids or  offers  in  the  manner  provided  by  this
section.  In determining whether a purchase is an expenditure within the
discretionary threshold amounts established  by  this  subdivision,  the
officer,  board  or agency of a political subdivision or of any district
therein shall consider the reasonably expected aggregate amount  of  all
purchases  of  the  same  commodities, services or technology to be made
within the twelve-month period  commencing  on  the  date  of  purchase.
Purchases  of  commodities,  services  or  technology shall not be arti-
ficially divided for the purpose of satisfying the discretionary  buying
thresholds  established by this subdivision. A change to or a renewal of
a discretionary purchase shall not be permitted if the change or renewal
would bring the reasonably expected aggregate amount of all purchases of
the same commodities, services or  technology  from  the  same  provider
within  the  twelve-month  period  commencing  on  the date of the first
purchase to an amount greater than the  discretionary  buying  threshold
amount. For purposes of this section, "sealed bids" and "sealed offers",
as  that  term  applies  to purchase contracts, (including contracts for
service work, but excluding any purchase  contracts  necessary  for  the
completion  of  a public works contract pursuant to article eight of the
labor law) shall include bids and  offers  submitted  in  an  electronic
format  including  submission of the statement of non-collusion required
by section one hundred  three-d  of  this  article,  provided  that  the
governing board of the political subdivision or district, by resolution,
has authorized the receipt of bids and offers in such format. Submission
in  electronic format may, for technology contracts only, be required as
the sole method for the submission of bids and offers. Bids  and  offers
submitted  in  an  electronic format shall be transmitted by bidders and
offerers to the receiving device designated by the political subdivision
or district. Any method used to receive electronic bids and offers shall
comply with article three of the state technology law, and any rules and
regulations promulgated and guidelines developed thereunder  and,  at  a
minimum,  must (a) document the time and date of receipt of each bid and
offer received electronically; (b)  authenticate  the  identity  of  the
sender;  (c) ensure the security of the information transmitted; and (d)
ensure the confidentiality of the bid or offer until the time  and  date
established  for the opening of bids or offers. The timely submission of
an electronic bid or offer in compliance with instructions provided  for
such submission in the advertisement for bids or offers and/or the spec-
ifications  shall be the responsibility solely of each bidder or offerer
or prospective bidder or offerer. No political subdivision  or  district

A. 7083                             3

therein shall incur any liability from delays of or interruptions in the
receiving device designated for the submission and receipt of electronic
bids and offers.
  S  2.  Subdivision  1  of section 103 of the general municipal law, as
amended by section 2 of chapter 2 of the laws of  2012,  is  amended  to
read as follows:
  1. Except as otherwise expressly provided by an act of the legislature
or  by  a  local  law adopted prior to September first, nineteen hundred
fifty-three, all contracts for public work involving an  expenditure  of
more  than  thirty-five  thousand  dollars  and  all  purchase contracts
involving an expenditure of more than twenty thousand dollars, shall  be
awarded  by  the  appropriate  officer,  board  or agency of a political
subdivision or of any district therein including but not  limited  to  a
soil  conservation  district to the lowest responsible bidder furnishing
the required security after advertisement for sealed bids in the  manner
provided  by  this  section,  provided, however, that purchase contracts
(including contracts  for  service  work,  but  excluding  any  purchase
contracts necessary for the completion of a public works contract pursu-
ant  to  article  eight of the labor law) may be awarded on the basis of
best value, as defined in section one hundred sixty-three of  the  state
finance  law,  to  a responsive and responsible bidder or offerer in the
manner provided by this section except that in a  political  subdivision
other  than  a city with a population of one million inhabitants or more
or any district, board or agency with jurisdiction  exclusively  therein
the  use  of  best  value  of  awarding  a purchase contract or purchase
contracts must be authorized by local law or, in the case of a  district
corporation,   school  district  or  board  of  cooperative  educational
services, by rule, regulation or resolution adopted at a public meeting.
In determining whether a purchase is an expenditure within  the  discre-
tionary  threshold amounts established by this subdivision, the officer,
board or agency of a political subdivision or of  any  district  therein
shall consider the reasonably expected aggregate amount of all purchases
of  the  same  commodities, services or technology to be made within the
twelve-month period commencing on the date  of  purchase.  Purchases  of
commodities,  services  or  technology shall not be artificially divided
for the purpose of satisfying the discretionary buying thresholds estab-
lished by this subdivision. A change to or a renewal of a  discretionary
purchase shall not be permitted if the change or renewal would bring the
reasonably  expected  aggregate  amount  of  all  purchases  of the same
commodities, services or technology from the same  provider  within  the
twelve-month  period  commencing on the date of the first purchase to an
amount greater than the discretionary buying threshold  amount.  In  any
case  where  a responsible bidder's or responsible offerer's gross price
is reducible by an allowance for the value of used machinery, equipment,
apparatus or tools to be traded in by a political subdivision, the gross
price shall be reduced by the amount of such allowance, for the  purpose
of  determining  the  low  bid or best value. In cases where two or more
responsible bidders furnishing the required  security  submit  identical
bids  as  to price, such officer, board or agency may award the contract

BILL NUMBER:S2162

TITLE OF BILL:

An act to amend the tax law, in relation to providing a tax deduction
for donating organs; and to amend the labor law, in relation to job
security for those individuals who decide to donate an organ

PURPOSE:

Provides a tax deduction of up to ten thousand dollars for any person
who donates a human organ to another human being. Additionally, it
would provide employment security for an individual who donates all or
part of an organ for transplant.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Subsection (c) of section 612 of the tax law is amended by
adding a new paragraph 42, which deals with a tax deduction of up to
$10,000 to be made available to an individual who donates an organ for
the purpose of a human organ transplant. The deduction would be
allowed for non-reimbursed expenses relating to travel, lodging,
medical expenses and lost wages.

Section 2. Subdivision 2 of section 201-d of the labor law is amended
by adding a new paragraph e, which makes it unlawful for an employer
to discharge or discriminate against an individual who has made a
decision to donate a human organ during the entire donation process.

Section 3. Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

Nationwide, there are more than 85,000 individuals living day to day,
hoping for the chance to receive a viable organ donation. Last year,
6,184 people donated an organ in the United States according to the
Organ Procurement and Transplant Network. Of the organs donated 5,876
were kidney donations, with the remainder being partial donations of
the liver, pancreas or lungs. In the state of New York, there were
only 460 living donors. This left a substantial number of terminally
ill patients without the opportunity to receive an organ transplant.

A vast majority of citizens support organ donation (nearly 85%).
However less than half of those who support such a program have signed
their organ donor card. The exorbitant medical and other expenses
associated with a transplant procedure may prevent a suitable donor
from participating in an organ donation program. A tax deduction would
alleviate this obstacle by covering non-reimbursed expenses incurred
by a donor such as, travel, lodging, medical expenses and lost wages.
Additionally, the loss of employment is always a risk during long
recovery periods, this fear may prevent suitable donors from
participating. By offering these brave individuals the security that
their position would be waiting for them at the end of their recovery
would eliminate any additional hardship.

This legislation will significantly increase the pool of available
organ donors, which would reduce the time an individual must spend on


an organ donor list. Countless lives would be saved by providing
viable organs to patients before it is too late.

years commencing on or after such effective date.

ING TO TRAVEL, LODGING, MEDICAL EXPENSES AND LOST WAGES, BUT IN NO EVENT
SHALL THE AGGREGATE AMOUNT OF THE DEDUCTION EXCEED TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS.
THE DEDUCTION MUST BE TAKEN IN EITHER THE YEAR THE TRANSPLANT OCCURS, OR

BILL NUMBER:S3987

TITLE OF BILL: CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY
Proposing an amendment to section 6 of article 5 of the constitution,
in relation to appointments and promotions in civil service

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This concurrent resolution proposes
to increase the point credit for veterans and disabled veterans with
regard to civil service appointments and promotions.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends section 6 of article 5 of the constitution, as it
relates to appointments and promotions in the civil service of the
state and all of the civil divisions thereof. This resolution proposes
to increase the additional civil service points currently awarded to
veterans and disabled veterans for original appointments or
promotions.

JUSTIFICATION: Veterans across New York State are struggling to find
employment upon their return home. Unemployment among all veterans in
New York is over 7 percent. Further, unemployment has reached a
staggering 20 percent for veterans under the age of 30 who recently
returned home from Iraq and Afghanistan. According to the Bureau of
Labor Statistics, a significant number of recently returned veterans
have also reported service-connected disabilities.

Our servicemen and women put their lives on the line to protect our
freedom. We are therefore responsible for ensuring that they have the
opportunity to provide for themselves and for their families when they
return home. This bill will achieve that objective by providing
returning veterans, and disabled veterans, additional civil service
credit for purposes of appointments and promotions within the civil
service system.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the state

EFFECTIVE DATE: If the Assembly concurs, this amendment shall be
referred to the first regular legislative session convening after the
