An act to amend chapter 105 of the laws of 2009 amending chapter 693 of
the laws of 1980 enabling the county of Albany to impose and collect
taxes on occupancy of hotel or motel rooms in Albany county relating to
revenues received from the collection of hotel or motel occupancy taxes,
in relation to the effectiveness thereof

sunset on December 31, 2012. In order for the county to continue gener-
