To the Governor of the State of New York:
SIR-The Commission appointed under chapter 465 of the Laws of 1900, " to examine into the local government of The City of New York and the counties contained therein, and the effect and working of the Charter of Greater New York and the various acts amendatory thereof and the several acts relating thereto, and to suggest such legislation as it may deem advisable relating thereto," respectfully reports as follows:
In preparing its recommendations for legislation it became necessary for the Commission to determine in the first place whether it would undertake the preparation of a charter different in form from the existing Charter or whether it would embody its recommendations in the form of amendments to that Charter. But the limited amount of time at the command of the Commission has rendered it impossible to do more than to deal with questions of substance ; and it has seemed to the Commission that by presenting its views in the form of amendments to the Charter as existing, the Legislature and the public generally would perceive more clearly what changes are proposed.
The Commission has, therefore, prepared and herewith submits a bill to be transmitted to the Legislature, providing for certain amendments to the Greater New York Charter. In accordance with the rules of the Legislature, new matter in this bill is underscored and matter proposed to be omitted is inclosed in brackets-except that in the case of sections which are to be repealed, it has been thought sufficient to refer to them simply by their number and title in the schedules that will be found at the end of the bill.
