A10056 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10056
 
SPONSOR: Solages
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general municipal law and the public authorities law, in relation to requiring notice and confirmation of such notice by affected local taxing jurisdictions and school districts prior to approval of projects by industrial development agencies   PURPOSE OF GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would ensure that important notifications required by law to be given by Industrial Development Agencies (IDAs) are received by affected local taxing jurisdictions.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends General Municipal Law and Public Authorities Law to require IDAs to send notifications of proposed financial incentives for a project and any reasons for deviation from their uniform tax exemption policy to affected local taxing jurisdictions by certified mail, return receipt requested. If the affected local taxing jurisdiction is a school district, notifications are required to be sent to the school board and district superintendent of the school district.   DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORIGINAL AND AMENDED VERSION (IF APPLICABLE): This amendment expands the notifications that would be required to be sent by certified mail, return receipt requested and places these requirements on the Troy and Auburn IDAs, which are separately author- ized in Public Authorities Law.   JUSTIFICATION: Industrial Development Agencies (IDAs) deliver economic incentives to business and industry, strengthen the local tax base and support local job creation. In order to ensure this mission, IDAs must work coopera- tively with local governments, economic development partners and school districts. This bill will ensure coordination and transparency among stakeholders without inhibiting economic growth or having a negative impact on school district revenues or local taxpayers.
