BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
Section 1. Legislative intent. It is hereby declared to be a substan-

have certainty in the corporate status and orderly dissolution of public
authorities, and that upon dissolution, their enabling statutes will be
repealed and their books, records and remaining rights, if any, will be
transferred to the municipality for whose purpose the public benefit
corporation was created. The welfare of the state necessitates ensuring
that the proliferation of moribund public benefit corporations, such as
those included in this act found to be defunct by the comptroller, the
authorities budget office and the New York state commission on public
authority reform, does not continue unchecked.

S 3. Title 30 of article 8 of the public authorities law is REPEALED.
S 3-a. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, any

solid waste management authority shall be disposed of as shall be agreed
upon by all participating counties of the authority.
