                   IN ASSEMBLY
                                    January 28, 2021
        Introduced  by  M.  of  A. SCHMITT, GOODELL, MANKTELOW, BYRNES, WALCZYK,
          referred to the Committee on Governmental Operations
        AN ACT to amend the legislative law, in relation to fiscal impact notes
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
     1    Section  1.  Subdivision  2  of  section 51 of the legislative law, as
     2  added by chapter 985 of the laws of 1983, is amended to read as follows:
     3    2. [The legislature shall by concurrent resolution of the  senate  and
     4  assembly prescribe rules requiring fiscal notes to accompany, on a sepa-
     5  rate form, bills and amendments to bills, except as otherwise prescribed
     6  by  such  rules,  which]  A  bill  that would [substantially] affect the
     7  revenues or expenses,  or  both,  of  any  political  subdivision  shall
     8  contain  a detailed fiscal impact note stating the estimated annual cost
     9  to the political subdivision affected and the source of  such  estimate.
    10  The  fiscal impact note must clearly identify the funding source of such
    11  annual cost to the political subdivision. An omission  of  such  funding
    12  source in the fiscal impact note, shall invalidate such bill.
    13    §  2.  The  legislative law is amended by adding a new section 51-b to
    14  read as follows:
    15    § 51-b. Passage of legislation imposing costs  on  political  subdivi-
    16  sions. 1. For the purposes of this section, the term "political subdivi-
    17  sion"  shall  mean  any county, city, town, village, special district or
    18  school district.
    19    2. Any bill introduced in the assembly or senate that would affect the
    20  revenues or expenses,  or  both,  of  any  political  subdivision  shall
    21  require a vote of three-fifths of each house to pass.
    22    § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.

         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
