A04883 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A4883
 
SPONSOR: Cusick
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to establish a moratorium on the adoption or implementation of any local law, ordinance, rule or regulation relating to charging a fee for carryout merchandise bags or a fee of similar effect; and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would establish a moratorium on the adoption and/or implemen- tation of any local law related to charging a fee for carryout bags.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill would establish a moratorium on the adoption and/or implemen- tation of any local law or ordinance, or any rule or regulation, by a city with a population of one million or more, related to charging a fee for carryout bags. Such moratorium would remain in effect until two hundred and seventy days after the adoption of a local law which re-au- thorizes, modifies or repeals New York City Local Law 63 of 2016 as amended by New York City Local Law 81 of 2016 for the charging of a fee on customers for carryout bags. The re-authorization, modification, or repeal would be required to be passed by the Council of the City of New York for the term commencing January 1, 2018 and terminating December 31, 2021, or any term commencing thereafter.   JUSTIFICATION: Concerns have been expressed relating to a local law passed by the City of New York that requires the charging of a fee for single-use paper and plastic carryout bags. A more thorough examination of the current situ- ation is needed in order to investigate all potential impacts and possi- ble alternative approaches and to allow for public input. Such a review shall afford the state and its residents the opportunity to analyze the most effective methods of decreasing the use of and increasing recycling of single use paper and plastic carryout bags to effectively manage the waste stream and assist in environmental protection and management. Additional time after the adoption of a local law relating to charging a fee for carryout bags by the Council for the City of New York would allow for education of such local law for all stakeholders.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act would take effect immediately and be deemed to be in full force and effect on February 15, 2017 and shall expire two hundred and seventy days after the adoption of a local law which re-authorizes, modifies or repeals local law number 63 of the city of New York, as amended by local law number 81 of the city of New York for the year 2016, for the charg- ing of a fee for carryout bags passed by the Council of the City of New York for the term commencing January 1, 2018 and terminating December 31, 2021, or any term commencing thereafter.
