NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION

BILL NUMBER: A4061
 
SPONSOR: Colton
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general construction law, in relation to declaring October first, China Day, a public holiday   PURPOSE: Declares October first, China Day, a public holiday   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one of the bill amends § 24 of the general construction law to recognize the first day of October as China Day. Section two of the bill provides the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Chinese immigrants and Chinese-Americans have contributed significantly to the prosperity of our state and our nation. Their accomplishments include helping to build the Transcontinental Railroad and service to our country. One in five Chinese Americans enlisted to serve during the Second World War and many continue to enlist today. New York City contains the largest Chinese population of any city outside of Asia and from 2010 to 2015 increased at a rate of 16%, far eclipsing the 4% growth rate overall of New York City. As the Chinese population contin- ues to grow and make substantial contributions to our society, it is important that we commemorate China Day in New York State.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State   EFFECTIVE DATE: First of January next succeeding the date upon which it shall have become a law. Effective immediately the addition, amendment and/or repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for the implementation of this act on its effective date are authorized to be made and completed on or before such date.
