BILL NUMBER:S7605

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 707 of the laws of 2004 creating a temporary New York state French and Indian war 250th anniversary commemoration commission, in relation to extending the expiration and repeal of such provisions

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To extend the temporary commission to promote the 250th anniversary of the French and Indian War.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill would extend until 2015 the Temporary New York State French and Indian War Commemoration Commission.

EFFECTS OF PRESENT LAW WHICH THIS BILL WOULD ALTER: There is currently a Temporary New York State French and Indian War Commemoration Commission which is set to expire in 2014.

JUSTIFICATION: During the years 2005-2014, New York State will mark, within its borders, the 250th anniversary of the great battles of the French and Indian War. The outcome of the French and Indian War provided a social, economic, and political seedbed in which grew those ideals and values that caused patriotic New Yorkers to sacrifice much to win the American Revolutionary War. Colonial politics and the battlefields of the French and Indian War provided New York with trained and experienced political and military leaders who led New York during the years of the American Revolution. it is fitting that modern New Yorkers lock back to an era and a War that put our State on the threshold of democracy and on the path to becoming the Empire State.

New York State, it's Counties, Cities, Towns and villages may profit, both culturally and economically, from the benefits of a statewide commission to help organize, promote and fully implement a major commemoration of the 230th Anniversary of the French and Indian War.

By promoting New York States magnificent history, we can make New York the ultimate heritage tourism destination for the years 2005-2014. The commission will also help us coordinate with our Canadian neighbors in Quebec and Ontario who share this heritage with us and can be great partners with the promotion of this.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: See Chapter 707 of the laws of 2004. 2009-10 A10120A passed assembly

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
