A08232 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A8232
 
SPONSOR: Reilly
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the administrative code of the city of New York and the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to requiring the city of New York to establish the New York city school safety fund   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Establishes the New York city school safety fund. It also dictates the allocation of funds towards school safety initiatives by the chancellor of the city school district of the city of New York. Funds shall not be transferred into the city general fund, unless voted upon by the legislature. Section 2. Amends vehicle and traffic law by adding a new subdivision (c-1). Section 3. This act shall take effect immediately.   JUSTIFICATION: Mobile and stationary camera technologies in school zones have helped the City of New York collect millions in violations from motorists; however, that sum is projected to increase with the expansion of the speed camera program and the roll-out of the school bus stop sign camera program. Those monies are typically misused by city officials, including the mayor, on vanity projects and initiatives that have little to no impact on public safety. This legislation would create the New York City School Safety Fund, a "lockbox" to ensure all monies collected through the aforementioned camera programs are only used to improve pedestrian safety in school zones throughout the city. This would include, but is not limited to, the hiring of additional crossing guards, the installa- tion of safety signage, or the restoration of faded road markings such as crosswalks.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
