NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
BILL NUMBER: A5950 SPONSOR: Anderson
TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to overnight school bus parking on city streets   PURPOSE: This legislation will prohibit school buses from parking on city streets overnight.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends the Administrative Code of the City of New York by adding a new Section 19-611 that prohibits school buses operated by or pursuant to a contract with the board of education for transportation of students to or from public schools from parking overnight on a city street. Section 2 is the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: School buses should not be allowed to overtake city streets for use of parking such vehicles overnight. Many residential neighborhoods that contain a public school already bear the burden of congestion on their local streets due to daily drop-offs and pickups of school children during the week. This can often cause significant difficulties for these residents in their ability to get in and out of their homes and find parking in their neighborhoods. A recent trend in certain neighborhoods has resulted in school buses parking overnight only worsening an already difficult parking situation on city streets. Residents should not be required to compete with these large vehicles and the owners of these buses should be required to pro- iide necessary offsite overnight parking.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2021-2022: S.1921 - Reported and Committed to Finance/A.7196 - Referred to Cities 2019-2020: S.5723 - Referred to Cities/A.4716-A - Referred to Cities 2017-2018: S.1494-A- Referred to Cities/A.8104 - Referred to Cities 2015-2016: S.1097 - Passed Senate/A.9498 - Referred to Cities 2013-2014: S.6188 - Referred to Cities   STATE AND LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
