NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A8374
 
SPONSOR: McDonald
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general municipal law, in relation to authorizing regional planning council's eligibility to apply for federal and/or state grants   PURPOSE: To allow for Regional Planning Councils the eligibility of state and federal grants.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends the general municipal law to allow Regional Planning Councils the eligibility of state and federal grants.   JUSTIFICATION: Regional Planning Commissions as a rule work with local governments in a coordinated and cooperative effort. They often coordinate local govern- ment projects yet are not able to directly secure funding which can be a barrier to or delay project completion.. Allowing RPCs to apply for grants and funding will streamline the process which can help expedite implementation of projects.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect 180 days after enacted into law.
