A10951 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10951
 
SPONSOR: Lentol (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the mental hygiene law, in relation to the use of proceeds from the sale of property previously used by the office for people with developmental disabilities   PURPOSE: To require 85 percent of the proceeds from the sale of any property used, operated or maintained by OPWDD to be used for state-operated residential services or state-operated community-based services.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 requires 85 percent of the proceeds from the sale of any prop- erty used, operated or maintained by OPWDD to be used for state-operated residential services or state-operated community-based services. Further stipulates that these funds shall be used to increase the level of funds that would otherwise be made available and not to supplant the amount provided by the office. Section 2 is the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: The closure of state operated facilities promotes concerns for all stakeholders. When property is sold individuals who received services still must receive the services they need and deserve. This legislation seeks to ensure that funds that are collected from the sale of property remain within the state operated system to provide increased services to these individuals as opposed to being used for already existing services, or to fill fiscal gaps.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and shall apply to the sale of property on or after April 1, 2018.
