                                                                   LBD18492-01-4

        S. 7615                             2                           A. 11702
 
     1    § 24-a. Contingency budget. 1. A contingency budget shall take  effect
     2  on the first day of the fiscal year in the event the legislature has not
     3  finally acted upon all the appropriation bills submitted by the governor

     4  for  such  fiscal year and shall be sufficient for the ongoing operation
     5  and  support of state government and local assistance.  Such contingency
     6  budget shall take effect without further action by  the  legislature  or
     7  the governor, and shall remain in effect until both houses of the legis-
     8  lature  pass  a  single  multiple  appropriation  bill which alters such
     9  contingency budget.  Passage by both houses of the legislature  of  such
    10  multiple  appropriation  bill  shall  constitute  the  conclusion of the
    11  contingency period.
    12    2. The contingency budget shall authorize the renewal of the appropri-
    13  ations and reappropriations enacted for the immediately preceding fiscal
    14  year. Such appropriations  and  reappropriations,  in  addition  to  any

    15  related  statutory spending and revenue provisions in effect during such
    16  year, shall remain in effect for the  same  period  as  the  contingency
    17  budget remains effective.
    18    3.  (a)  The  aggregate disbursements authorized by appropriations and
    19  reappropriations in the contingency budget for such  fiscal  year  shall
    20  not  exceed  aggregate  disbursements  made in the immediately preceding
    21  fiscal year, provided further that disbursements authorized by  individ-
    22  ual items of appropriation and reappropriation in the contingency budget
    23  shall  not exceed disbursements made for such individual items of appro-
    24  priation and reappropriation in the immediately preceding  fiscal  year,
    25  with the following exceptions:

    26    (i)  payments  related  to  public  assistance grants under the family
    27  assistance, safety net and disability  assistance  programs  established
    28  pursuant  to  chapter  four  hundred  thirty-six of the laws of nineteen
    29  hundred ninety-seven, and for  emergency  assistance  for  families  and
    30  payments  for  eligible  aged,  blind  and  disabled  persons related to
    31  supplemental security income;
    32    (ii) federal funds for which receipt would be jeopardized  or  federal
    33  law would be violated if subject to such disbursement limitation; and
    34    (b)  The  contingency budget shall not authorize disbursements for the
    35  contingency period for any:
    36    (i) spending related to prior year appropriations or  reappropriations

    37  for items which were one-time or non-recurring in nature; or
    38    (ii)  new  contracts  that  are  not  for  the continuation of ongoing
    39  services or capital projects; or
    40    (iii) trend factors, cost of living adjustments or other rate  adjust-
    41  ments  that would otherwise automatically become effective, except those
    42  required by federal law.
    43    (c) No law changing the exceptions contained in paragraph (a)  or  (b)
    44  of this subdivision may become effective until three years from the date
    45  of its enactment.
    46    4.  If,  after a contingency budget becomes effective, the independent
    47  budget office projects that annual receipts  are  insufficient  to  meet
    48  annual  disbursements  under  the contingency budget, uniform reductions

    49  shall be applied to all disbursements other than those included in para-
    50  graph (a) of subdivision three of this section in  order  to  achieve  a
    51  balanced  plan  of  receipts and disbursements. Such reductions shall be
    52  applied not later than the thirtieth day that the contingency budget  is
    53  in  effect,  except  where  federal or other notification is required to
    54  effectuate a reduction, in which case such notification shall be made no
    55  later than the thirtieth day after the contingency budget is  in  effect
    56  and  the  related  reduction  shall  take  effect  as soon thereafter as

        S. 7615                             3                           A. 11702
 
     1  allowed. No reduction implemented under this subdivision shall alter any

     2  eligibility provision for any program.

    15    § 30. Subdivision a of section 316 of the retirement and social  secu-
    16  rity  law,  as  amended by chapter 33 of the laws of 1986, is amended to
    17  read as follows:
    18    a. Upon the basis of each annual  actuarial  valuation  and  appraisal
    19  provided  for  in  this  article,  the  comptroller,  on  or  before the
    20  fifteenth day of October of each year, shall prepare and file  with  the
    21  director  of the budget an itemized estimate of the amounts necessary to
    22  be appropriated by the state to the pension accumulation  fund  and  the

    26  payment  in  full  for  (i)  the succeeding fiscal year of all estimated
    27  obligations of the state to the [policemen's  and  firemen's]  New  York
    28  state  and  local police and fire retirement system; and (ii) any actual

    35  required to be made pursuant to clause (i) of  the  preceding  sentence,
    36  the state overpaid its actual obligation to the retirement system in any
    37  year,  the  amount  estimated in the filing required by this subdivision
    38  next succeeding such overpayment shall reflect the amount of such  over-
    39  payment,  plus  interest  on such amount, as a reduction in amounts that
    40  would otherwise be estimated to be due the retirement  system  from  the
    41  state. An item of appropriation which shall be sufficient to provide for
    42  such obligations shall be included in the next annual appropriation bill
    43  when  it  is  presented  to  the legislature for passage. The amounts so
    44  appropriated or so much thereof as may be required shall  be  paid  from

    46  mulation fund and the New York state public employees group life  insur-

     8    § 35. Section 23 of the state finance law is amended by adding  a  new

    10    7.  Revision of information. Information required by subdivisions one,

    12  this article shall be revised to reflect legislative action on the exec-
    13  utive budget and on the contingency budget and shall be presented to the
    14  legislature and the public  within  thirty  days  of  final  legislative
    15  action on appropriation bills, not including any deficiency bill.
    16    §  36. Subdivisions 3 and 4 of section 92 of the state finance law, as
    17  separately amended by chapters 405 and 957 of  the  laws  of  1981,  are
    18  amended to read as follows:
    19    3.  At the close of each fiscal year any cash surplus remaining in the
    20  general fund over and above the norm  for  such  fiscal  year  shall  be

    21  transferred  from or retained in such fund as hereinafter in this subdi-
    22  vision provided. There shall be transferred  to  the  tax  stabilization
    23  reserve  fund  all of such surplus moneys, up to and including an amount
    24  equivalent to two-tenths of one per centum of  such  norm,  unless  such
    25  transfer  would  increase  such  reserve  fund to an amount in excess of
    26  [two] three per centum of the amount of the norm for such  fiscal  year,
    27  in  which  event  such  transfer shall be limited to such amount as will
    28  increase such reserve fund to such [two] three  per  centum  limitation.
    29  Any  balance of such surplus moneys, thereafter remaining in the general
    30  fund, shall be retained in such fund and be available for the  reduction
    31  of state taxes.
    32    4.  In  the  event  that  at the close of any fiscal year the receipts

    33  derived from the taxes, fees and other  sources,  required  to  be  paid
    34  during  such  fiscal  year into the general fund of the state shall fall
    35  below the norm for such fiscal year, there shall be transferred from the
    36  tax stabilization reserve fund to the general fund to  the  extent  that
    37  there  are  sufficient  moneys in the tax stabilization reserve fund, an
    38  amount equal to the difference between the norm and the amount  of  such
    39  receipts. If such transfer reduces the tax stabilization reserve fund to
    40  an  amount  less than [two] three per centum of the norm for such fiscal
    41  year, the amount so transferred shall be repaid in  cash  prior  to  the
    42  computation and payment of any transfer to the fund pursuant to subdivi-
    43  sion  three of this section in not less than three equal annual install-
    44  ments within the period of six years or less next succeeding the date of

    45  such transfer; provided, however, that if any  such  annual  installment
    46  shall  increase  such reserve fund to an amount in excess of [two] three
    47  per centum of the amount of the norm for the then current  fiscal  year,
    48  such  installment  shall be limited to such amount as will increase such
    49  reserve fund to such [two] three per centum limitation  and  no  further
    50  repayment of the whole or any part of such transfer shall be required in
    51  any  subsequent fiscal year. Repayments to the tax stabilization reserve
    52  fund shall be stipulated in annual budget bills.
    53    § 37. The state finance law is amended by adding a new  section  92-dd
    54  to read as follows:
    55    §  92-dd. Fiscal stabilization reserve fund. 1. There is hereby estab-
    56  lished in the state treasury a fund to be known as the fiscal stabiliza-

        S. 7615                            20                           A. 11702
 
     1  tion reserve fund. Such fund shall consist of moneys  deposited  therein
     2  and  monies  shall  be withdrawn from such fund only for the purposes as
     3  provided therein.
     4    2.  For each fiscal year commencing on or after April first, two thou-
     5  sand six, an amount shall be  transferred  from  the  general  fund  and
     6  deposited in the fiscal stabilization reserve fund which shall be calcu-
     7  lated  as  two-tenths of one per centum of all moneys deposited into the
     8  state  treasury  excluding  federal  funds,  fiduciary  funds  and  bond
     9  proceeds,  during  the  immediately preceding fiscal year reduced by the

    10  amount that the sum of the balance of the fund at the beginning  of  the
    11  fiscal year and two-tenths of one per centum of all the moneys deposited
    12  into  the  state  treasury  during the immediately preceding fiscal year
    13  exceeds three per centum of the moneys deposited in the  state  treasury
    14  excluding  federal  funds,  fiduciary  funds and bond proceeds deposited
    15  into the state treasury during the immediately preceding fiscal year.
    16    3. Moneys available in the fiscal stabilization reserve fund shall  be
    17  withdrawn  from  the  fund  and  transferred  to the general fund in any
    18  subsequent fiscal year for  the  payment  of  education  aid  to  school
    19  districts  and  boards  of  cooperative  educational services during the

    20  first two months of the state fiscal year for each year beginning on  or
    21  after May first, two thousand seven and for other purposes in the amount
    22  jointly  certified as necessary by the governor, the temporary president
    23  of the senate and speaker of the  assembly,  provided  that  the  amount
    24  transferred  shall  not  exceed  the  amount  of moneys available in the
    25  fiscal stabilization reserve fund. Any transfers from the fund  for  the
    26  payment  of  education aid to school districts and boards of cooperative
    27  education shall be repaid in the subsequent fiscal  year.  If  an  addi-
    28  tional  transfer  reduces  the  fiscal  stabilization reserve fund to an
    29  amount less than three per centum of the moneys deposited in  the  state

    30  treasury excluding  federal funds, fiduciary funds and bond proceeds for
    31  such  fiscal  year,  the  amount  so transferred shall be repaid in cash
    32  prior to the computation and payment of any transfer to the fund in  not
    33  less than three equal annual installments within the period of six years
    34  or  less  next  succeeding the date of such transfer; provided, however,
    35  that if any such annual installment shall increase such reserve fund  to
    36  an  amount  in  excess  of  three per centum of the amount of the moneys
    37  deposited in the state treasury excluding federal funds, fiduciary funds
    38  and bond proceeds for the then current  fiscal  year,  such  installment
    39  shall  be  limited  to such amount as will increase such reserve fund to

    40  such three per centum limitation and no further repayment of  the  whole
    41  or  any part of such transfer shall be required in any subsequent fiscal
    42  year.
    43    § 38. Section 22 of the state finance law is amended by adding two new
    44  subdivisions 14 and 15 to read as follows:

     9  tabular format showing a comparison with  current  year  appropriations,
