BILL NUMBER:S7816A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 618 of the laws of 1998, amending the general municipal law and the education law relating to disposal of surplus computer equipment by political subdivisions, in relation to extending the expiration of such chapter

PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill is to provide a three year extender for computer donation provisions.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill extends for three years until July 1, 2013 chapter 618 of the laws of 1998 about donation of computer equipment.

JUSTIFICATION: The enactment of chapter 618 of the laws of 1998 and the extension granted in 2001, 2004, and 2007 enabled political subdivisions to donate surplus computer equipment through SED's C.R.E.A.T.E.

This bill will extend this law and allow local governments to continue to dispose of surplus computer equipment in a fair and equitable manner.
