A08513 Memo:

submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the multiple dwelling law, in relation to interim multi- ple dwellings   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The purpose of this bill is to increase the amount of loft units protected under law by extending the application period.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one of this bill extends, by one year, the application window for eligibility. Section two of the bill sets the effective date.   DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORIGINAL AND AMENDED VERSION (IF APPLICABLE): Not Applicable   JUSTIFICATION: Many loft tenants currently live in the shadows under unregulated and unfit conditions because of an inability to obtain legalized status. The limited window period of applying for eligibility for loft law coverage has restricted loft tenants who seek coverage and want to stay in their homes. Currently, a June 15, 2017 deadline exists for submitting cover- age applications. By extending the application window, this bill would allow for more time to apply, improve the living conditions for loft tenants, and increase housing opportunities.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediate.
