BILL NUMBER:S6455               REVISED 01/21/10

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 105 of the laws of 2009 amending chapter 693 of the laws of 1980 enabling the county of Albany to impose and collect taxes on occupancy of hotel or motel rooms in Albany county relating to revenues received from the collection of hotel or motel occupancy taxes, in relation to the effectiveness thereof

PURPOSE: Extends the effectiveness of chapter 105 of the laws of 2009 for two years.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends chapter 105 of 2009, extending the sunset from December 31, 2010 to December 31, 2012.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently, the county of Albany's hotel/motel occupancy tax is slated to sunset on December 31, 2010. In order for the county to continue generating revenue, the sunset must be extended. This ensures the continued promotion of the Capital District and also provides funding for the continuation of the Albany Convention Center and Hotel project.
