A06835 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A6835
 
SPONSOR: Hunter
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the business corporations law and the not-for-profit corporation law, in relation to exempting veterans from the payment of certain fees relating to corporations   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This legislation would exempt veterans from paying certain filing fees relating to the incorporation of a business.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill adds a new section 104-B to the business corpo- ration law to exempt veterans from certain fees outlined in section 104-A of the business corporation law within five years of being honor- ably discharged or released under honorable circumstances, and includes the definition of the word "veteran" as used in the new section. Section 2 of the bill adds a new section 104-B to the not-for-profit corporation law to exempt veterans from certain fees outlined in section 104A of the not-for-profit corporation law within five years of being honorably discharged or released under honorable circumstances, and includes the definition of the word "veteran" as used in the new section. Section 3 of the bill provides that this act shall take effect imme- diately.   JUSTIFICATION: Veterans of our nation's armed services provide an extraordinary service to our country by devoting their time, effort, and talents to protecting us from harm. We owe it to them to make sure that when their service is up, they are easily able to reintegrate into society and are given every opportunity to succeed, provide for themselves and their families, and contribute to New York's vibrant business community. This legislation would waive business incorporation fees for veterans within five years of being honorably discharged or released under honor- able circumstances, so that they will face fewer administrative and financial barriers to starting and growing their own businesses when their military service is finished. It would send a strong message that New York State supports those individuals who have made an extraordinary sacrifice for their state and country, and encourage the growth of small businesses in our state.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S.5529-A of 2015-2016 (Hoylman): Died in Corporations, Authorities, & Commissions   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
