BILL NUMBER:A4721

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.
