A00795 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A795
 
SPONSOR: Wallace
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general municipal law, in relation to fees charged by municipal industrial development agencies   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To standardize the fees charged by industrial development agencies with- in a county   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1: Amends section 856 of the General Municipal Law to add a new subdivision requiring that each municipal industrial development agency (IDA) located entirely within a county that has its own county IDA shall charge the same fees as the county IDA and shall not charge any fees beyond the county IDA. Section 2: Effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Many counties have a county IDA as well as several municipal IDAs, and in many cases these organizations all charge different fees to appli- cants seeking project assistance. The lack of standardization can some- times give project applicants an incentive to "shop around" between IDAs, seeking the IDA with the lowest fees, and putting other areas in the county at a disadvantage. Standardizing the fees charged by IDAs within a county will reduce this incentive and put economic development within each county on a level playing field.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2019-2020: A.9793 - Referred to Local Governments   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall have become a law and shall apply to projects for which applications were submitted on or after such effective date.
