PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill will change the date by which the Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor Commission must submit for approval to the Commissioner a draft management plan and change the date when Article 41 expires to conform to such date. The plan must be submitted by July 31, 2013.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill amends section one subdivision 2 of Section 41.09 of the Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation Law, as added by Chapter 595 of the Laws of 2007.

JUSTIFICATION: The Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor Commission was designated as part of New York's system of heritage area in 2007.

Edward Nash House, Michigan Street Baptist Church and the Colored Musicians Club, associated with and revealing of a historic role as the center of African-American history, culture and reform activities. The importance of the Commission's mission to develop the heritage corridor to function as a destination for both academic research and tourism is imperative. To further the Commission's purpose, it must have a dedicated funding source.

This legislation would give the Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor Commission additional time to submit their plan to the Commissioner for approval.
