     1    Section  1.    The tax law is amended by adding a new section 630-i to
     2  read as follows:
     3    § 630-i. Gifts for the state library system.   Effective for  any  tax
     4  year  commencing  on or after January first, two thousand twenty-two, an
     5  individual in any taxable year may elect  to  contribute  to  the  state
     6  library  aid  program  for  financial  support  for public libraries and
     7  library systems, reference and research library  resource  systems,  the
     8  New  York  public  research  libraries, the Schomburg collection and the
     9  library for the  blind  and  visually  handicapped,  or  for  any  other
    10  library,  library  system  or  purpose enumerated in section two hundred
    11  seventy-three of the education law. Such contribution shall  be  in  any
    12  whole dollar amount and shall not reduce the amount of state tax owed by
    13  such  individual.  The  commissioner shall include space on the personal
    14  income tax return to  enable  a  taxpayer  to  make  such  contribution.
    15  Notwithstanding any other provision of law all revenues collected pursu-
    16  ant  to  this section shall be credited to the state library aid program
    17  and shall be used in addition to,  not  to  supplant,  existing  funding
    18  under  the  state  library  aid program and used for only those purposes
    19  enumerated in section two hundred seventy-three of the education law.
    20    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
