TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 929 of the laws of 1986
amending the tax law and other laws relating to the metropolitan
transportation authority, in relation to extending certain provisions
thereof applicable to the resolution of labor disputes

PURPOSE: Extends to July 1, 2011, the provisions relating to
compulsory arbitration to resolve impasses in collective negotiations
between the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), MTA New York
