NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A591
 
SPONSOR: Cahill
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to allowing for prorated refunds of the licensure and registration fee to the spouse of a deceased professional   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To allow for prorated refunds of the licensure and registration fee to the spouse of a deceased professional.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends Subdivision 3 of section 6502 of the education law, as amended by chapter 599 of the laws of 1996 to provide the above require- ment.   JUSTIFICATION: Currently, the State Education Department does not permit prorated refund of licensure fees unless a spouse or other authorized person requests such refund prior to the beginning of the licensing period. Essentially this means that such an individual would have to apply for such refund before the death of the licensee. This bill provides a reasonable degree of recompense for, a spouse in the event of a licensed professional's death.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2019-2020: A.406 - Referred to Higher to Education 2017-2018: A.149 Referred to Higher Education 2015-2016: A.1391- Referred to Higher Education 2013-2014: A.1162- Referred to Higher Education 2011-2012: A.174 -Referred to Higher Education 2009-2010: A.1192- Referred to Higher Education 2007-2008: A.524 -Referred to Higher Education 2005-2006: A.3996- Referred to Higher Education 2004: A.259 - Referred to Higher Education 2003: A.259 - Reported Referred to Way and Means 2002: A.11229 - Referred to Higher Education   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
