BILL NUMBER:S1737B

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend chapter 616 of the laws of 1992, relating to authorizing the
conveyance of state land in the city of Buffalo, to Women for Human
Rights and Dignity Development Corporation Inc. for charitable purposes,
in relation to authorizing the commissioner of general services to
release a right of reverter in letters patent conveying certain land
located in the city of Buffalo, county of Erie

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Authorizes the Commissioner of
General Services to release a right of reverter in letters patent
conveying certain land.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 amends chapter 616 of laws
of 1992 to allow the commissioner of general services to cancel any
condition or right of reverter upon the application by the successor
in interest of the original grantee. Also provides for the
commissioner to determine a payment of fair and equitable
consideration.

Section 2 provides for specifications of the parcel of land as
identified as part of subdivision lot 12 in block "F" as shown on a

longer need to acquire this property and have requested that the
right of conveyance be reversed.
