NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10030
 
SPONSOR: Simpson
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the parks, recreation and historic preservation law, in relation to providing a fifty percent discount for state residents on admission fees to parks, recreational facilities or historic sites oper- ated by the state office of parks, recreation and historic preservation for the 2022 season; and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Provides a fifty percent discount for state residents on admission fees to parks, recreational facilities or historic sites   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Section 13.15 of the parks, recreation and historic preserva- tion law is amended by adding a new subdivision 3-a to-read as follows: 3-a. Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivisions three and four of this section or of any other provision to the contrary, each resident of the state shall be entitled to a discount of fifty percent off two thou- sand twenty-two admission fees, as published by April first, two thou- sand twenty-two, that such resident would otherwise have been responsi- ble for paying to obtain entry to any park, recreational facility or historic site   DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORIGINAL AND AMENDED VERSION (IF APPLICABLE): N/A   JUSTIFICATION: Many New York State residents who have been living under pandemic restrictions will finally get a chance to take advantage of our Great State's parks, recreational areas and historic sites in the coming months. At the same time, the price of gas and inflation at a 40-year high are leaving too many of our citizens with less disposable income to enjoy these amenities. This measure cuts the price of admission in half at those outdoor recreational facilities operated by the state office of parks, recreation and historic preservation for the 2022 season.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and shall apply only to entry fees charged. during 2022; provided that this act shall expire and be deemed repealed. October 15, 2022
