NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A633
 
SPONSOR: Carroll
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public authorities law, in relation to requiring the metropolitan transportation authority to create ten-year capital program plans   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill will require the MTA to create a ten-year fiscal plan to design a capital program, plan rather than the current 5-year capital program plan.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Paragraphs a, b, c and d of subdivision of section 1269-b of the public authorities law are amended to say that on or before Oct. 1st, 2021, the MTA must submit a two capital program plans for the 20 year period commencing on January 1st of the following year to the Metropolitan Transportation Capita). Program Review Board. Paragraph e of subdivision 7 of section 1269-b of the public authorities law as amended to require that on or before January 31st every 10th year following 2021 that the authority shall submit to the MTA Capital Program Review board two capi- tal program plans.   JUSTIFICATION: Changing the timing for the MTA Capital program plans from the current 5 year plan to a 10 year plan was recommended by the Metropolitan Trans- portation Sustainability Advisory Workgroup in December 2018 and would be helpful since planning and execution of complex capital projects frequently takes longer than the current five-year capital planning process. A ten-year capital planning process wouldn't reduce CPRB over- sight and would still require legislative review and CPRB approval midway through a capital program-much like the current process for amending the capital plan. Additionally, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has a ten-year planning and budget cycle.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A.7088/S.5130 of 2019-20   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: TBD.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
