A09061 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A9061
 
SPONSOR: Katz
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the county law and the state finance law, in relation to defunding planned parenthood   PURPOSE: To prevent state funding to be allocated to the organization Planned Parenthood.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: SECTION 1. Subdivision 16 of section 224 of the county law, as added by chapter 811 of the laws of 1969, is amended to read as follows: 16. The board of supervisors of any county (may) shall not appropriate (such sums of money as it deems proper toward the maintenance of) any funds for the support or operation of a planned parenthood association organized and operating (to give family planning services to persons residing) in the county. SECTION 2. The state finance law is amended by adding a new section 53-e to read as follows: § 53-e. Prohibiting state funding for Planned Parenthood organizations. No appropriations or allocations of state funds may be made to any Planned Parenthood association or to any successor organization.   JUSTIFICATION: Using public funds for private organizations is a seri- ous concern which needs to be addressed. Using taxpayer dollars to support procedures residents may or may not support is an irresponsible use of taxpayer dollars. At a time when New York is desperately trying to revive its economy there are much better areas for hard earned taxpayer dollars to be used.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
