A10327 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10327A
 
SPONSOR: Gunther
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the town law, in relation to authoriz- ing fire districts to expend from revenues amounts appropriated for cost of insurance to provide firefighters with an enhanced cancer disability benefit insurance program   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would exempt the cost of volunteer firefighter enhanced cancer disability benefits from the fire district budget spending limitation.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one adds a new paragraph 17 to section 176 of the town law. Section two is the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Fire districts have a spending limitation that applies to certain cate- gories of their annual budget under Town Law Section 176 (18). Under current law, there are sixteen exemptions to the fire district spending limitation; this bill simply adds the newly adopted volunteer firefight- er enhanced cancer disability benefits to the list. Exempting the cancer coverage insurance expense from the fire district budget spending limi- tation is critical for fire district finances. This legislation will have no impact on the real property tax levy cap provided for under General Municipal Law Section 3-c. A fire district will be required to follow the current procedure if it wishes to exceed that cap. The fire district budget spending limitation is merely a mech- anism to control spending in some but not all budget categories.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
