A10105 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10105
 
SPONSOR: Englebright
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the navigation law, in relation to pilotage fees on vessels transiting the New York state waters of Long Island Sound or Block Island Sound east of Execution Rocks or Sands Point   PURPOSE: This legislation establishes a new system of pilotage fees for the Long Island Sound and Block Island Sound.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill amends section 89-b of the navigation law to establish a new system of pilotage fees for Long Island Sound and Block Island Sound. The new system establishes a schedule for the next five years of pilotage rates as follows: effective January 1, 2023 - increase from 2022 rates of $9.68 per pilotage unit to $9.97; on January 1, 2024 - $10.27 per pilotage unit; on January 1, 2025 $10.58; on January 1, 2026 - $10.89; on January 1, 2027 - $11.22. Section 2 sets a minimum charge to be calculated for vessels of 200 pilotage units or less and a maximum charge to be calculated for vessels of 500 pilotage units or more.   JUSTIFICATION: This legislation would adjust the pilotage rates for foreign trade vessels entering and leaving the Long Island-Block Island Sound. In order to fairly compensate pilots at Long Island and Block Island Sound ports, this bill would establish a five-year schedule for an increase in pilotage fees. Merchant ships entering the Long Island and Block Island Sounds are required by law to take aboard a local pilot. These pilots are signif- icantly trained and qualified to take over large vessels and direct the vessel's navigation and docking while in State waters. Connecticut and New York share authority to regulate pilotage and a 1999 memorandum of agreement was established for licensed pilots to participate in a joint rotation of the pilots. This legislation establishes a rate structure that would contribute to fairly compensating pilots, effectively training pilots, and properly maintaining pilots' boats.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
