BILL NUMBER:S6952A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to including the Hoosic River in the definition of "inland waterways" for the purposes of waterfront revitalization

PURPOSE:

To designate the Hoosic River as an Inland Waterway for purposes of the State's Coastal and Inland Waterways program.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

This bill amends Subdivision 4 of Section 911 of the Executive Law by expanding the definition of "inland waterways" to include the Hoosic River.

JUSTIFICATION:

Designation as an "inland waterway" makes the local communities along such waterway eligible to participate in New York's Coastal and Inland Waterways Program. The State offers a grant program, funded through the Environmental Protection Fund, which assists communities in developing and implementing local waterfront revitalization programs.

In recent years, several waterways have been added to the definition, reflecting the interest in, and benefits of this program. This legislation would amend the definition to also include the Hoosic River, located in Rensselaer County.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the State

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
