NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A1477
 
SPONSOR: Zebrowski (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 154 of the laws of 1921, relating to the port authority of New York and New Jersey, in relation to the commissioners of such authority   PURPOSE OF THE BILL: The purpose of this bill would be to assign one of the two non-designat- ed seats to a Hudson Valley voter. This would allow representation from the Hudson Valley to voice the concerns of local residents of the Hudson Valley.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends article 4 of section 1 of chapter 154 of the laws of 1921 as it relates to assigning one of the two non-designated seats on the Port Authority board to a Hudson Valley area voter.   JUSTIFICATION: In November 2007 the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey assumed a 99 year lease of Stewart International Airport in New Windsor, 141. It would be beneficial to both the residents of the Hudson Valley and the Port Authority to create a permanent seat for a Hudson Valley commis- sioner. This will allow residents of the Hudson Valley to have a voice in the Port Authority through a permanent seat. It will benefit the Port Authority by allowing them to more intelligently manage its diverse geographical operations.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A.1717 of 2015-2016; A.1437 of 2013-2014; A.2214 of 2011-12; A.8084 of 2009-10.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect upon the enactment into law by the state of New Jersey of legislation having an identical effect with this act, but if the state of New Jersey shall have already enacted such legislation, this act shall take effect immediately.
