Memo

BILL NUMBER:S5182

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the arts and cultural affairs law, in relation to works of art in the empire state plaza; to amend the general business law, in relation to the rules and regulations for nail specialty, natural hair styling, esthetics and cosmetology; to repeal article 4 of the arts and cultural affairs law, in relation to the empire state plaza art commission; to repeal section 433-a of the general business law, in relation to the barbers board; and to repeal section 844-a of the executive law, in relation to the New York statewide law enforcement telecommunications committee

PURPOSE: To merger the powers of the Empire State Plaza Art Commission into the Office of State History. To repeal the Barbers Board and the New York statewide law enforcement telecommunications committee.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 57.03 of the arts and cultural affairs law is amended by adding a new subdivision 7 that give the powers and responsibilities of the Empire State Plaza Art commission to the Office of State History.

These responsibilities include: (a) making recommendations to state agencies regarding the custody, display, conservation, preservation and maintenance of works of art in the empire state plaza under the jurisdiction of such agencies; (b) to appraise and catalogue the works of art in the empire state plaza; (c) to advise and assist state agencies in the preparation and distribution of publications by such agencies; (d) to make recommendations to the Governor, the Legislature and the Commissioner of general service regarding purchasing works of art for display at the Empire State Plaza; (e) To solicit and acquire works of art for display at the Empire State Plaza; (f) To enter into such contracts as may be necessary or appropriate for the performance of the functions vested in it by this article; (g) to provide the Legislature or either house assistance with its offices and facilities in the Empire State Plaza; (h) assist the commission of education, if requested, with the cultural education center; (i) to solicit and accept gifts; (j) to establish a program in consultation with the Commissioner of general services to promote the Empire State Plaza Art collection to the public; (k) to appoint a curator and employees to implement the requirements above.

Repeals Article 4 of the Arts and Cultural Affairs Law.

Repeals section 433-a of the general business law creating the barbers board.

Repeals section 844-a of the executive law creating the New York statewide law enforcement telecommunications committee.

JUSTIFICATION: New York State Government is constantly changing and evolving. It is important that current law reflects those changes to

provide for a more efficient, streamlined state government. This legislation eliminates a commission, board and committee that are no longer necessary to provide the services they once did. The elimination of the Empire State Plaza Art commission, the barbers board and the New York statewide law enforcement telecommunications committee will assist in decreasing the state current bureaucracy and consolidate responsibilities.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
