AN ACT to amend chapter 330 of the laws of 2011 amending the  town  law,
  relating  to  payments  for certain school, fire, fire protection, and
  ambulance districts for lands exempt from real property  taxation  for
  purposes  which implement the Peconic Bay community preservation fund,
  and permitting the town  of  Southampton  to  make  such  payments  in
  certain cases, in relation to payments to libraries

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

  Section 1. Section 2 of chapter 330 of the laws of 2011, amending  the
town   law,   relating  to  payments  for  certain  school,  fire,  fire
protection, and ambulance districts for lands exempt from real  property
taxation  for purposes which implement the Peconic Bay community preser-
vation fund, and  permitting  the  town  of  Southampton  to  make  such
payments in certain cases, is amended to read as follows:
  S 2. Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, the town of
Southampton  may  make  annual  payments from its community preservation
fund to certain high-tax school, fire, fire  protection,  and  ambulance
districts,  as  specified  in  this  section,  located  either wholly or
partially within the central Pine Barrens area as defined in subdivision
10 of section 57-0107 of  the  environmental  conservation  law.    Such
payments  may  be  made  to mitigate the impact of the lost tax revenues
from lands made wholly exempt as a result of their  acquisition  by  the
federal,  state,  or  local government for the preservation of community
character as defined in subdivision 4 of section 64-e of the  town  law.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets

DISTRICT LEVIES TAXES ON BEHALF OF SUCH LIBRARY.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately, provided that the  amend-
ments  to  section 2 of chapter 330 of the laws of 2011, made by section
