A00306 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A306A
 
SPONSOR: Steck
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to authorizing the city of Schenectady to impose fees for the issuance of birth and death certificates through local law   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Authorizes the Schenectady City Council to establish the fee charged for the issuance of birth and death records by the clerk of the City of Schenectady.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Amends section 4173(3) (b) of the public Health Law, to provide that the Schenectady City Council may increase the fee charged for certified copies of birth and death certificates.   JUSTIFICATION: Vital records are documents such as birth and death certificates. Currently, the City of Schenectady is authorized to charge up to $10 for a certified copy of these vital records. The fee for a certified copy has not increased since 1991, when the fee increased from $5.00 to its present fee of $10.00. By contrast, the charge authorized for the NYS Department of Health for such records under NYS Public Health Law section 4174(2) has been increased twice and is $30. Due to the increas- ing costs in providing services to its residents and balancing the budg- et, the Schenectady City Council has requested legislation enabling them to implement a fee increase. Local governments have limited resources, many of which are currently experiencing declines as a result of their economic sensitivity. Consequently, it is more important than ever that the state find no-cost ways to enhance local governments' ability to generate additional resources.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2019: A306 - passed Assembly 2017/18: A7978 - rules   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to State, additional local revenue will offset the need to increase local property taxes.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately
