NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A9753
 
SPONSOR: Fahy
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to repeal subdivision 6 of section 11-0907 of the environmental conservation law relating to land designated as a restricted area   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Repeals subdivision 6 of section 11-0907 of the environmental conserva- tion law relating to land designated as a restricted area   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 repeals subdivision 6 of section 11-0907 of the environmental conservation law. Section 2 sets the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: The Alcove Reservoir in Coeymans, New York serves as an important compo- nent of the Capital Region's regional watershed system. The site is rich in vegetation and has become a source of revenue as a carbon sink for the City of Albany, which owns the property. Hunting and the taking of wild game is specifically prohibited in state law, which over time has become problematic for the management of the reservoir site. Hunting is permitted directly outside the boundaries of the reservoir and this "doughnut" effect has led to a major proliferation of the deer popu- lation on the reservoir property. The effect this has on surrounding vegetation puts the revenue the City of Albany receives for using the land as a carbon sink at risk. This legislation would allow the taking of game in the Alcove Reservoir, which would enable staff to take measures to control the deer popu- lation. The bill would not open up the reservoir to hunting by the general public as access would remain restricted.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
