A06175 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A6175A
 
SPONSOR: Schimminger
  TITLE OF BILL: An act authorizing the empire state development corporation to develop a public awareness campaign promoting businesses located in New York state   PURPOSE OF THE BILL: This legislation would establish and implement a public awareness campaign including a business website promoting businesses located in New York State and encouraging individuals and businesses to purchase products and services from such businesses.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1-3. Establishes a public awareness campaign by the Empire State Development Corporation to include the promotion of businesses located in New York State and the creation of an Internet website directory for the purposes of business networking. Section 4. Sets the date for the campaign to begin no later than January 1, 2020, and directs the Empire State Development Corporation to prepare an annual report to the governor and the legislature regarding actions taken to carry out the public awareness campaign and an assessment of the necessary appropriations.   JUSTIFICATION: Frequently NY businesses buy goods and services from companies outside of their community and out of New York State when those same goods and services are available locally and at a competitive rate. A public awareness campaign, including a business networking website would help spur economic development. The website would provide useful information including a directory exclusively for NY businesses to provide detailed information on products and services they provide and other businesses in or outside of New York State could seek them out. The website would also provide a place for businesses to network. Many New York State companies would prefer to use other New York State businesses for goods and services as it not only brings business to their neighbors but also more tax revenue to the cash strapped local governments in our state. This program will promote more sales of New York State products and will create more tax revenue for our state.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2015-2016: A.9444/S.6668.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
