BILL NUMBER:S4291B

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the state finance law, in relation to funds of the state

PURPOSE: This bill would prohibit the comptroller from establishing an account in a banking institution with a Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) rating of less than satisfactory.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill law amends Section 75 of the state finance law, as separately added by chapters 405 and 957 of the laws of 1981, to specify that notwithstanding any other provision of Section 75, the Comptroller of the State of New York shall not establish an account in a banking institution with a Community Reinvestment Act rating of less than satisfactory.

Section 2 of the bill specifies the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Many low- and moderate-income neighborhoods deposit funds at local institutions only to have banks invest these funds outside the community, diminishing economic opportunity. In recognition of this concern. the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 was enacted to encourage banks to reinvest some of these funds back into the communities from which they originated. The CRA does this by rating financial institutions on how well they comply with the terms of the act.

This bill would further enhance CRA compliance by directing the comptroller to withdraw state funds from, or not deposit state funds in, those banks that do not receive a CRA rating of satisfactory or better.
