A05434 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A5434
 
SPONSOR: Reilly
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public authorities law, in relation to authorizing the dormitory authority to provide financing to the Sandy Ground Histor- ical Museum   PURPOSE:   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Amends Section 1676 of the public authorities law. Section 2. Amends Section 1680 of the public authorities law. Section 3. This act shall take effect on the thirtieth day after it shall have become a law.   JUSTIFICATION: In 1827, after slavery was abolished in the State of New York, freemen settled in an area of Richmond County that had been known since colonial times as Sandy Ground. Located today in the Rossville section of Rich- mond County, Sandy Ground was one of the first documented land purchases by an African-American from the area and remains to be one of the oldest surviving communities in the United States that had been founded by African-Americans prior to the American Civil War.The early settlers of Sandy Ground were skilled in the oyster trade, with their community being within distance of Prince's Bay, the island's main hub for oyster harvesting. From the early to mid-19th century, Sandy Ground served as an important stop on the Underground Railroad. Sandy Ground is the oldest continuously settled free black community in the United States, and ten families descended from the original settlers still remain in the area today. This legislation would authorize the Dormitory Authority to provide financing to the Sandy Ground Historical Museum.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: Reintroduction.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: Not determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: : This act shall take effect on the thirtieth day after it shall have become a law.
