A04721 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A4721
 
SPONSOR: McLaughlin (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the state finance law, in relation to prohibiting state mandated expenditures on localities   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Relates to prohibiting state mandated expenditures on localities.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1. The state finance law is amended by adding a new section 54-m that states the state shall not mandate expenditures on localities (any county, town or village) unless such expenditures are otherwise funded by the state.   JUSTIFICATION: The State of New York presently mandates to local government and school districts certain services that must be provided by these respective municipalities and forces them to cover the cost. These "unfunded mandates" continue to crush county, local and school budgets. This act shall take decisive action to force State government to pay for the programs it mandates throughout New York State while denying State government the opportunity to pressure local governments and school districts through property assessments.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A5001 - 2014.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
