A04874 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A4874A
 
SPONSOR: Wright (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public housing law, in relation to the composition of the New York city housing authority, and in relation to the compensation of members of the New York city housing authority; and to repeal certain provisions of such law relating thereto   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The bill would alter the structure and operation of the New York City Housing Authority's board of directors.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill would change the composition of the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) members to consist of three tenant representative members, and four other members including the Chairman. The bill would change the term of members of the authority, other than the chairman, from five to three years. Upon the removal of members, other than the Chairman, the Mayor would be required to file the reason for removal of the member in the Office of the Commissioner of Citywide Administrative Services and make the reasons for such removal available to the public. The bill would extend the time for the Mayor to fill vacancies of the board to 90 days. This bill would also require that only the NYCHA chairman work full-time for the Authority and not be employed elsewhere. The bill would author- ize the chairman's salary to be fixed by local law. Members other than the chairman would receive a monthly stipend of two-hundred fifty dollars for every four hours of work performed for the authority, not to exceed one-thousand five hundred dollars every month.   JUSTIFICATION: This bill would expand tenant representation on the Authority. Current- ly NYCHA is comprised of five appointees, including the chairman and one tenant representative. The bill would expand the Authority to seven members by adding two additional tenant representatives and limiting the number of appointed members to four. This would ensure that NYCHA resi- dents are well-represented on the Authority. The bill also sets a new equitable compensation structure for board members other than the full- time chairman that reflects the time they are expected to dedicate to the performance of their Authority duties.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on June 1, 2013, provided that the mayor of the City of New York may make appointments to the board prior to the effective date of this act.
