NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10396
 
SPONSOR: Ra (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to requiring the state to provide state funds to community colleges for additional operating costs associated with an increase in the state minimum wage   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The purpose of this bill is to allocate proper levels of state funding to community colleges throughout New York in correlation with the increased cost of the rising minimum wage.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1: Amends the Education Law to add section 6304-b which would require the community college board of trustees to report to the State Comptroller on an annual basis the increased costs associated with a rise in minimum wage and in turn require the State to provide such addi- tional funding as necessary. Section 2: Sets and effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Due to the increasing New York State minimum wage, community college daycare centers are finding it increasingly difficult to continue opera- tion while keeping costs affordable to both students and staff. While the State continues to provide funding for these facilities, it is no longer sufficient and more is required. This bill will specifically mandate that the State provide funding to each community college daycare center in the amount necessary to offset the cost of increased wages.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: Unknown.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
