Assembly Passes Kellner Bill to Democratize RIOC Board

The New York State Assembly voted today and passed A09321 amending Chapter 899 of the 1984 laws creating RIOC to "Reconstitutes the Roosevelt Island operating corporation board of directors;provides that the corporation shall be governed by an elected rather thanappointed board; makes numerous related provisions, including provisions foradditional duties."

The bill had been previously submitted by Peter Grannis during his terms in office. the bill has now been delivered to the Senate where it will come before the Rules Committee. Unfortunately as yesterday was the last session of this term the outcome of this bill will have to wait.
