Memo

BILL NUMBER:S32                  REVISED 12/07/12

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public authorities law and chapter 774 of the laws of 1950 relating to agreeing with the state of New Jersey with respect to rules and regulations governing traffic on vehicular crossings operated by the port of New York authority, in relation to requiring cash lanes to be made available at certain toll barriers and to repeal section 2985 of the public authorities law relating thereto

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The provision of electronic collection of tolls for certain highway bridge and/or tunnel facilities offers significant benefits to the majority of the motoring public, including increased customer convenience, road congestion relief, cost reductions and enhanced traffic management, but it could result in causing inconvenience, aggravating congestion, increasing costs and lessening management control for motorists who do not have electronic toll collection accounts. The proposed legislation would insure at least one cash facility is available in Cities of 1,000,000 or more to motorists without electronic toll collection accounts.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after it shall have become a law, provided, however, that the commissioner of transportation is authorized and directed to promulgate any rules and regulations necessary to implement the provisions of this act on or before such effective date.
