Section of Urban, State and
  Local Government Law
American Bar Association
Vol. 7, No. 1, Summer 1983


Patrick J. Falvey to Become
Section Chairman

Patrick J. Falvey, general counsel
and assistant executive director of
the Port Authority of New York &
New Jersey will become Chairman
of the Section with the expiration
of Manly M. Mumford's term at the   v
conclusion of the ABA's upcoming  A 0
Atlanta meeting in August. Under  __
the Section's Bylaws, Pat, who is
currently Chairman-Elect, auto-
matically assumes the Chairman-
ship at the end of his predeces-
sor's term.
  Pat has long been active in Section affairs, serving as a
member of the Council and holding various Section offices. One
of his most noteworthy contributions to both the Section and
the ABA has been his work on the model procurement code for
state and local governments. Together with representatives of
the Public Contract Law Section and with Sherwin Birnkrant
and Lou Del Duca of our Section, Pat worked on innumerable
drafts of what ultimately became the Model Procurement Code,
which the ABA House of Delegates unanimously approved in
1979. Following this approval, Pat and his colleagues continued
to work on drafting regulations for the Code as well as finalizing
a model procurement ordinance for local government. Many
states, countries, cities and other units of local government
have already adopted the Code and its accompanying regula-
tions, and a great many more are expected to do so in the next
few years. The Code represents one of the major accomplish-
ments of our Section in recent years and its successful comple-
tion is due in no small part to Pat Falvey. In Lou Del Duca's
words, Pat brought to his work on the Code a wealth of prac-
tical experience and knowledge in the public procurement field
and a genius for developing viable solutions out of conflicting
and even hostile positions, which, Lou added, saved the day
on many occasions.
  As Port Authority general counsel, Pat is the legal advisor to
the Authority's twelve Commissioners and directs a law depart-
ment of 57 lawyers. The Port Authority's facilities include Ken-
nedy, LaGuardia and Newark Airports, the George Washington
Bridge and the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels, an interstate com-
muter railroad (PATH), the World Trade Center, two bus ter-
minals and various marine terminals in both States. Pat has
spent his professional career in the Port Authority Law Depart-
ment, joining it in 1951. Only last year he received the Port
Authority's highest honor, its Howard S. Cullman Distinguished
Service Medal. In conferring this award on Pat, the Authority's
                                 (continued on next page)


Annual Meeting
Program Highlights

Vice-Chairman Gene Corrigan has put together an outstanding
program for the Section's 1983 Annual Meeting this August in
Atlanta. There are timely up-dates on tax-exempt financing, air-
port law, civil rights, secondary mortgages, human resources,
public sector labor law issues, state and federal roles in land
use matters, school law, as well as a discussion on the legal
resources available to government lawyers. The meeting con-
cludes with Bob Freilich's always stimulating annual view of
municipal law. Three of the programs are showcase presenta-
tions. In addition, Gene has organized various social events, in-
cluding a reception and dinner-dance featuring the Mary Sue
Taylor quartet. With unbounded enthusiasm Gene writes that
Mary Sue Taylor is absolutely the finest jazz pianist ... I have
ever heard. I know that everyone will enjoy her music, whether
she be playing various types of jazz, or swing .... She can and
will play the kind of music that our group wants her to play, in-
cluding dance music, background music, showcase music, loud
or soft music .... By choice, she seldom plays outside the
Atlanta area. We are really fortunate to have gotten her for our
function. The full program can be found on page 3 of this
Newsletter.
