mined  that  the development of the village of Canastota's underutilized
property, uniquely located near the New York state thruway, may  provide

and  recreational  related  industry, and increase municipal revenue 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.   A  parcel
of  such  certain  land  has been identified, which is under its present
jurisdiction and owned by the people of the state of New York, that  may
be  utilized  by the International Boxing Hall of Fame to allow realiza-
tion 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 maintaining job opportunities, and such other  purposes  as  may  be
authorized by section 893 of the general municipal law.
  S  2.    Notwithstanding  any  other law to the contrary, the New York
state thruway authority shall transfer and convey to the Madison  county
