BILL NUMBER:S1324

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the economic development law, the public authorities law, the general municipal law and the New York state urban development corporation act, in relation to requiring first consideration of unemployed individuals, low-income individuals, dislocated workers, individuals training for nontraditional employment, as defined in the federal workforce investment act of nineteen hundred ninety-eight (P.L. 105-220), veterans, and individuals with disabilities for hiring for positions created as a result of economic development assistance

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: For positions created as a result of various economic development assistance programs, requires the businesses so assisted to first consider for hiring unemployed and low-income individuals, dislocated workers, and individuals training for nontraditional employment, veterans and individuals with disabilities, as defined in the federal workforce investment act. Updates outdated references to the federal Job Training Partnership Act and the Department of Labor Job Service Division.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Adds or amends first consideration language in the following sections of law: Economic Development Law 184 - NYS economic development power allocation board; Economic Development Law §202 - skills development assistance program; Economic Development Law §224 - export diagnostic and market development program; Public Authorities Law (PAL) § 1005 - NY Power Authority; PAL § 1804 - Job Development Authority; PAL § 1967-A - Troy Industrial Development Authority; PAL § 2329 - Auburn Industrial Development Authority; PAL 3102-A. - industrial technology extension service; General Municipal Law § 858-B -Industrial Development Authorities; Urban Development Corporation (UDC) Act § 9-B -loans for small and medium sized business; UDC Act § 16-B - job retention and defense Industry working capital loan; UDC Act § 16-e - minority and women-owned business development and lending; UDC Act § 16-E - regional economic development partnership program; UDC Act § 16-H - JOBS Now program; UDC Act § 16-M - empire state economic development fund.

EFFECTS OF PRESENT LAW WHICH THIS BILL WOULD ALTER: Where "first consideration" language is already in law, the bill updates outdated references to the Job Training Partnership Act and the Department of Labor Job Division, and adds a requirement to notify local work force investment boards of position openings. The bill also adds first consideration provisions to two large programs that did not previously have this language, the JOBS Now program and the Empire State Economic Development Fund.

JUSTIFICATION: To help create new jobs, the state provides grants and loans to businesses. Existing law has required for certain programs that the businesses so aided give first consideration for hiring to displaced, unemployed and low-income New Yorkers when new jobs are created. This bill brings the law up to date by referencing the federal

Workforce Investment Act, and adds the "first consideration" requirement to two additional economic development assistance programs.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.
