                STATE OF NEW YORK
                    IN SENATE
                                     January 4, 2018
        Introduced  by  Sen. LAVALLE -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
          printed to be committed to the Committee on Finance
        AN ACT to amend the state finance law, in relation to five-year  capital
          plans  for the state university of New York and the city university of
          New York
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
     1    Section  1. Section 22-c of the state finance law is amended by adding
     2  a new subdivision 7 to read as follows:
     3    7. For the fiscal year beginning on April first, two thousand nineteen
     4  and every fifth fiscal year thereafter, the governor shall submit to the
     5  legislature as part of the annual executive  budget,  five-year  capital
     6  plans  for  the state university of New York state-operated campuses and
     7  city university of New York senior colleges.  Such plans  shall  provide
     8  for  the  annual  appropriation  of  capital  funds to cover one hundred
     9  percent of the annual critical  maintenance  needs  identified  by  each
    10  university system, and may include funds for new infrastructure or other
    11  major  capital  initiatives,  provided that such funding for new infras-
    12  tructure or other major capital  initiatives  shall  not  count  towards
    13  meeting the overall critical maintenance requirement.  In the event that
    14  such  plan is unable to fund one hundred percent of the critical mainte-
    15  nance needs due to the limitation imposed  by  article  five-B  of  this
    16  chapter,  the  director  of  the  budget shall develop five-year capital
    17  plans whereby the implementation of each  capital  plan  would  annually
    18  reduce  the  overall  facility condition index (FCI) for each university
    19  system. For the purposes of this subdivision, "facility condition index"
    20  shall mean an industry benchmark that measures  the  ratio  of  deferred
    21  maintenance dollars to replacement dollars for the purposes of analyzing
    22  the  effect of investing in facility improvements.  The apportionment of
    23  capital appropriations to each state-operated campus or  senior  college
    24  shall  be  based on a methodology to be developed by the director of the
    25  budget, in consultation with the state university of New York  and  city
    26  university of New York.
    27    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
