To thi Grernor of ihe State of New York:
Sir, The Commission appointed under chapter 465 of the Laws of 1900, "to examine into the local government of The
Igoo City of New York and the counties contained therein, and the erfect and working of the Charter of Greater New York and +Tic various acts amendatory thereof and the several acts relating thereto, and to siggest such legislation as it may deem advisable relating thereto,” respectfully reports as follows :
In preparing its recommendations for legislation it became Bekessary 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 vould cm body its recommendations in the form of amendments to tiiat Charter. But the limited amount of time at the ümmand 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 xisting, the Legislature and the public generally would percere 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 bi'l 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and matter proposed to be omitted is inclosed in brackets-except that in the case of sections which are to be repealed, it has been thought sufficient to refer to then simply by their number and title in the schedules that will be found at the end of the bill.
