  (i)  causes  death  or  injury  to another by discharging a firearm or
longbow, or
  (ii) so negligently discharges a firearm or longbow as to endanger the

  b.  Action  by  the  department  resulting  in  the revocation of such
license or denial of the privilege to hunt and trap as provided in  this
subdivision  shall  be  only after a hearing held by the department upon
notice to the offender, at which proof of facts indicating the violation
is established to the satisfaction of the commissioner or of the hearing
officer designated by him and concurred in by the commissioner. Provided
that where a person, while hunting, causes death or injury to any person
by discharge of a firearm or  longbow,  the  commissioner  may,  in  his
discretion,  suspend  such  person's  license  or  licenses  to hunt and
suspend such person's right to hunt without a license for a period of up
to sixty days pending a hearing as provided for in this subdivision.

injury  to  another,  the license or licenses, BOWHUNTING PRIVILEGE, AND
MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGE shall be revoked and the [privilege of  obtain-
ing]  ABILITY  TO  OBTAIN any such license and of hunting or of trapping
anywhere in the state with or without a license denied, for a period not
exceeding ten years, except that no revocation shall be made in cases in
which facts established at the hearing indicate to the  satisfaction  of
the commissioner that there was no negligence on the part of the shooter
or bowman. In all other cases the license or licenses, BOWHUNTING PRIVI-
LEGE, OR MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGE, shall be revoked and the privilege of
obtaining  such  license, BOWHUNTING PRIVILEGE, OR MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVI-
LEGE, and of hunting or of trapping anywhere in the state with or  with-
out  a license denied for a period not exceeding five years. The depart-

successfully complete a department-sponsored course and obtain a certif-
icate  of  qualification  in responsible hunting or bowhunting practices

within ten days from the occurrence of such accident file  a  report  of
the  accident  in  writing with the department. Every such person or law
enforcement officer shall make such other and additional reports as  the
department  shall  require.    Failure to report such accident as herein
provided by the person causing injury or to furnish relevant information
required by the department shall be a  violation  and  shall  constitute

lege  of  obtaining]  ABILITY  TO OBTAIN any such license and of hunting
with  or  without  a  license  following  a hearing or opportunity to be
heard. In addition, the department may temporarily suspend  the  license
of  the  person  failing  to report a hunting accident within the period
prescribed herein until such report has been filed. In  the  case  of  a
non-resident, the failure to report an accident as herein provided shall
constitute grounds for suspension or revocation of his or her privileges
of  hunting within this state. The report required by this section shall
be made in such form and number as the department may prescribe.
  S 28. Subdivisions 3 and 5 of section  11-0719  of  the  environmental
conservation  law, subdivision 3 as amended by chapter 25 of the laws of
2011, are amended to read as follows:

twelve  and less than sixteen years of age or a [junior archery license]
HUNTING LICENSE WITH BOWHUNTING PRIVILEGE issued  to  a  person  who  is
between  the  ages  of  twelve  and  sixteen years may be revoked by the
department upon proof satisfactory to the department that  such  person,
while  under  the age of sixteen, has engaged in hunting wildlife with a
gun or longbow, in circumstances in which a license AND/OR BOWHUNTING OR
MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGE is required, while not accompanied  by  his  or
her  parent,  guardian  or other adult as provided in section 11-0929 of
this article. If such license or privilege  is  revoked  the  department
shall  fix  the  period  of  such revocation, which is not to exceed six
years. The department may require that such person successfully complete
a department sponsored course and obtain a certificate of  qualification
in  responsible hunting or responsible bowhunting practices before being
issued another hunting or bowhunting license.

person  the  [privilege of obtaining] ABILITY TO OBTAIN a license, or of
hunting, trapping or fishing without a license, it shall cause the  fact
of such revocation or denial, or both, as the case may be, and the terms
and  extent thereof, to be entered in the minutes of the department, and
shall forthwith send a written notice of its action as so entered in the
minutes to the person affected, at his last  known  address,  either  by
registered  or  certified  mail or by delivery personally by a represen-
tative of the department. Within five days after service of such notice,
such person shall deliver to the  department  the  license  or  licenses
revoked,  together  with any [buttons or] tags issued in connection with
them. If the license was one entitling the holder to [the  privilege  of
several  licenses,]  A  BOWHUNTING  OR  MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGE and the
revocation concerned some but not all of such privileges,  any  license,
[button]  or tag so delivered shall be returned by the department to the
person to whom it was issued, appropriately marked or  stamped  to  show
the extent to which it is revoked.

test  indicates  the presence of alcohol in his system and having there-
after been requested to submit to chemical test, refuses  to  submit  to
such  chemical  test,  the test shall not be given, and a report of such
refusal shall be forwarded by the officer under whose direction the test
was requested to the department  of  environmental  conservation  within
seventy-two hours and the department shall revoke all licenses, [stamps]

S. 2608--D                         39                         A. 3008--D

BOWHUNTING  PRIVILEGES,  MUZZLE-LOADING  PRIVILEGES, and permits to hunt
which such person may possess; provided, however, that  such  revocation
shall  become effective only after a hearing held by the department upon
notice to such person, unless such hearing is waived by such person.
  4.  A license, [stamp] BOWHUNTING PRIVILEGE, MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGE,
or permit to hunt may, upon the basis of a report, verified  as  herein-
after  provided,  of  the  administering  officer that he had reasonable
grounds to believe such person  to  have  been  engaged  in  conduct  in
violation  of  any subdivision of section 11-1203 of this title and that
said person had refused to submit to such test, be temporarily suspended
without notice pending the determination upon  any  such  hearing.  Such
report  may be verified by having the report sworn to, or by affixing to
such report a form notice that false statements made therein are punish-
able as a class A misdemeanor pursuant to section 210.45  of  the  penal
law  and  such  form  notice together with the signature of the deponent
shall constitute a verification of the report.
  5. No license, [stamp] BOWHUNTING PRIVILEGE, MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGE,
or permit to hunt shall be revoked because of a  refusal  to  submit  to
such  chemical  test if the hearing officer is satisfied that the person
requested to submit to such chemical test had not been warned  prior  to
such  refusal  to  the  effect that a refusal to submit to such chemical
test may result in the revocation of such  license,  [stamp]  BOWHUNTING
PRIVILEGE, MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGE, or permit to hunt whether or not he
is found guilty of the charge for which he has been arrested.
  S  30. Subdivision 3 of section 11-1209 if the environmental conserva-
tion law, as added by chapter 726 of the laws of  1977,  is  amended  to
read as follows:
  3. Notwithstanding any provision in section 11-1205 of this title, the

exceeding two years, any or all  licenses,  [stamps]  BOWHUNTING  PRIVI-
LEGES,  MUZZLE-LOADING  PRIVILEGES, or permits to hunt of any person who
violates any subdivision of section 11-1203 of this title. Action by the
department resulting in such  revocation  shall  become  effective  only
after  a  hearing  held by the department upon notice to such person, at
which proof of facts indicating the  violation  is  established  to  the
satisfaction  of  the  commissioner,  or  of  the  hearing  officer  and
concurred in by the commissioner. A person whose  license  to  hunt  has
been  revoked  as  provided  in  this subdivision is ineligible for such
license during the period determined by the department  as  provided  in
this  section.  No  such  person  shall, during such period, procure any
license for which he is ineligible. No person shall without license hunt
or trap during any period in which the  privilege  to  do  so  has  been
denied  him  by  the  department  as  provided in this section. When the
department has revoked a license, or has denied to any person the [priv-
ilege of obtaining] ABILITY TO OBTAIN a license, it shall cause the fact
of such revocation or denial, or both, as the case may be, and the terms
and extent thereof, to be entered in the minutes of the department,  and
shall forthwith send a written notice of its action as so entered in the
minutes  to  the  person  affected, at his last known address, either by
registered or certified mail or by delivery personally  by  a  represen-
tative of the department. Within five days after service of such notice,
such  person  shall  deliver  to  the department the license or licenses
revoked, together with any [buttons] BOWHUNTING PRIVILEGES, MUZZLE-LOAD-
ING PRIVILEGES or tags issued in connection with them.  If  the  license
was  one  entitling the holder to the privilege of several licenses, and
the revocation concerned some  but  not  all  of  such  privileges,  any

license,  [button] BOWHUNTING PRIVILEGE, MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGE or tag
so delivered shall be returned by the department to the person  to  whom
it  was  issued,  appropriately  marked or stamped to show the extent to
which it is revoked.
  S  31. Paragraph d of subdivision 1 of section 71-0919 of the environ-

sections  eight  and  ten  of  this  act shall take effect, and provided
further, that the amendments to section 9 of part AA of  chapter  60  of
the  laws  of 2011 made by section fifteen of this act shall take effect

                                 PART S

  Section 1. Legislative findings.  The  legislature  hereby  finds  and
determines:
  1.  In  2011  and 2012, three storms of enormous magnitude - Hurricane
Irene, Tropical Storm Lee and Superstorm Sandy - each battered New York,
causing billions of dollars of damage  to  roads,  buildings  and  other
infrastructure.  The  three  storms collectively resulted in millions of
residential, business and industrial  customers  of  electric  utilities
losing electricity for extended periods of time.
  2.  Each  of  these storms caused, among other things, a disruption in
the distribution and supply of motor fuels, and in the  case  of  Super-
storm  Sandy, downstate motorists were unable to obtain routine supplies
of fuel for several weeks.
  3. In addition, temporary  fuel  distribution  disruptions  associated
with  the  aftermath  of  a  storm  can result in emergency vehicles and
responders unable to adequately address ongoing public safety and health
emergencies, delay an appropriate  response  to  infrastructure  damages
caused  by  a  storm, and otherwise disrupt commerce in the state due to
difficulty to obtain readily available motor fuels.
  4. On November 15, 2012, in response  to  Superstorm  Sandy,  Governor
Andrew  M.  Cuomo announced the creation of the NYS Ready Commission and
tasked it with finding ways to ensure critical systems and services  are
prepared  for future natural disasters and other emergencies. As related
to this act, the Commission was tasked with  addressing  vulnerabilities
in the state's energy systems.
  5.  The  NYS  Ready  Commission  recommended,  among  other things, to
require that retail gasoline outlets located in strategic locations have
on-site back-up power capacity to ensure that such outlets can  continue
fuel sales operations during a long-term electric outage. The purpose of

S. 2608--D                         41                         A. 3008--D

this act is to ensure that the state is better situated in the future to
address the temporary disruption of retail fuel supplies.

ity, in consultation with the department of public service and the divi-
sion  of  homeland security and emergency services, shall develop recom-
mendations regarding the establishment of microgrids in the state of New
York. For purposes of this act, the term "microgrid" shall mean a  group
of  interconnected loads and distributed energy resources within clearly
defined electrical boundaries that acts as a single controllable  entity
with respect to the grid and can connect and disconnect from the grid to
enable  it  to  operate  in both grid-connected or island-mode.  Specif-
ically, the authority shall develop recommendations which  include,  but
are not limited to, the following:
  (a)  Whether  hospitals,  first responder headquarters, such as police
and fire stations, emergency shelters, schools, water filtration plants,
sewage treatment plants, municipalities, commercial entities, and  other
locations in the state of New York may desire to collaborate on success-
ful microgrids;
  (b) The geographic areas in the state of New York where the establish-
ment  of  such  microgrids should be a priority, based upon severe storm
damage during the two years prior to the effective date of this act;
  (c) the regulatory structure under which microgrid systems would oper-
ate;
  (d) how the operation of microgrids would  conform  with  the  current
requirements  of utilities to provide safe and adequate service to rate-
payers;
  (e) the type of microgrid projects that may be implemented, including,
but not limited to, distributed generation, combined heat and power;  or
utilizing renewable technologies such as fuel cells, wind, solar, energy
storage, or other energy systems;
  (f)  the  technical  and  regulatory aspect of how a microgrid will be
interconnected to the power grid;
  (g) the adequacy of a microgrid system to operate in  emergency  situ-
ations  and  that proper protections are in place to ensure operation in
the event of an emergency situation; and
  (h) funding mechanisms that should be considered in order to  pay  for
the establishment, operation and maintenance of such microgrids, includ-
ing  a  cost  benefit analysis for the development and implementation of
microgrids.
  S 2. The authority shall submit a final report of  recommendations  to
the  governor,  the temporary president of the senate and the speaker of
the assembly within one year after the effective date of this act.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.

  S 2. Severability clause. If any clause, sentence, paragraph, subdivi-
sion,  section  or  part  of  this act shall be adjudged by any court of
