A03196 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A3196
 
SPONSOR: Raia (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the legislative law, in relation to limitations on the effectiveness of provisions of law imposing or increasing certain fees   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To require the Legislature to review and reevaluate any general revenue fee and ascertain if it is necessary to impose or increase that fee.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Requires all legislation imposing or increasing any fee to expire within two years after the effective date.   EFFECTS OF THE PRESENT LAW WHICH THIS BILL WOULD ALTER: Amends the legislative law by adding a new section 52-a.   JUSTIFICATION: While fees have become a major source of revenue for the State, these "hidden taxes" have caused a burden to all taxpayers. A report issued in January, 1992, stated that 380 new fees and fee hikes were enacted since 1989, adding $343 million to the costs of living and working in New York State. To attain the economic recovery that is desperately needed in this State, it is imperative that every tax source be reviewed in an effort to lower New York State's tax burden.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2016: A.4683 Held for Consideration in Governmental Operations 2015: A.4683 Referred to Governmental Operations 2014: A.4158 Referred to Governmental Operations 2013: A.4158 Held for Consideration in Governmental Operations 2012: A.4564 Held for Consideration in Governmental Operations 2010: A.3868 Referred to Governmental Operations. 2009: A.3868 Held for Consideration in Governmental Operations 2008: A.4616 Held for Consideration in Governmental Operations 2007: A.4616 Referred to Governmental Operations. 2005-06: A.4800 Held for Consideration in Governmental Operations 2003-04: A.5743 held for Consideration in Governmental Operations 2001-02: A.6243 held for Consideration in Governmental Operations 1999-00: A.4972 held for Consideration in Governmental Operations   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: First of January next succeeding the date on which it shall have become law.
