AN  ACT  to  authorize  the  New  York state thruway authority to convey
  certain land located in the village of Canastota, county of Madison

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Declaration of purpose. The state of New York, the village
of Canastota and the county of Madison have determined that the develop-
ment of the village  of  Canastota's  underutilized  property,  uniquely
located  near  the  New  York  state thruway, is vital to the growth and
prosperity of the state of New York, the village of  Canastota  and  the
county  of Madison. Development of this area offers an historic opportu-
nity to expand the local  economy,  provide  job  opportunities,  expand
tourism and recreational related industry, and increase municipal reven-
ue for the residents of the village of Canastota and the overall Central
New  York region.   In general, the state of New York desires to improve
this corridor to create opportunities for tourism and recreation.    The
New York state thruway authority has identified a parcel of such certain
land, which is under its present jurisdiction and owned by the people of
the state of New York, that may be utilized to allow realization of such
opportunities  for  tourism  and recreation.   The county of Madison has
established an industrial development agency pursuant to section 893  of
the  general  municipal  law with the intention of using such agency for
the purposes of  relieving  and  reducing  unemployment,  promoting  and
providing for additional and maximum employment, bettering and maintain-
ing  job  opportunities, and such other purposes as may be authorized by
section 893 of the general municipal law.
  S 2. Notwithstanding any other law, the New York state thruway author-
ity shall transfer and convey to the Madison county industrial  develop-
ment  agency,  created  pursuant to section 893 of the general municipal
law, the parcel of certain land referenced in section one  of  this  act
and  described in section four of this act for the purposes described in
this act, sole consideration of redevelopment activities and site owner-
