BILL NUMBER:S7330

TITLE OF BILL: An act to repeal title 12 of article 15-B of the general municipal law relating to the Tarrytown urban renewal agency

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To eliminate the now defunct Tarrytown Urban Renewal Agency from statute.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section One of the bill repeals Title 12 of article 15-B of the General Municipal law, as added by Chapter 266 of the laws of 1964.

Section Two provides that any existing records, property, rights, titles and interests of the agency shall vest in and be possessed by the village of Tarrytown and its successors or assigns.

Section Three is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: This bill would advance the State's effort to maintain an accurate inventory of authorities. It would update state law to reflect the fact that certain authorities have, as a practical matter, ceased to exist. By eliminating defunct authorities, this bill would ensure that if a local government wishes once again to use an authority for urban renewal, industrial development, parking, or other similar purpose, it must obtain new legislation at the state level authorizing such use. This bill would thus promote the State's interest in curbing the proliferation of unnecessary authorities.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012: S6405A - Passed Senate

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
