AN ACT authorizing the New York state division of housing and  community
  renewal  to  study  state  and locally aided housing programs and make
  recommendations for the preservation, modernization, and  increase  in
  the  supply of such housing; to amend the private housing finance law,
  in relation to providing a moratorium on the voluntary dissolution  of
  limited  profit, limited dividend and redevelopment housing companies;
  and providing for the repeal of certain provisions upon the expiration
  thereof

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

  Section  1.  New  York state and its localities have invested for more
than a half century in the creation of low and middle income housing  to
benefit those most in need and to the general benefit of state and local
economies.  In  many  cases such housing has fallen into disrepair or is
being lost as affordable housing due to  statutory  provisions  allowing
owners  to  dissolve  housing  companies.  The unmet need for affordable
housing is presently greater than at any time in the state's history.  A
temporary moratorium on the dissolution of any housing company is neces-
sary for the New York state division of housing and community renewal to
complete its work and make recommendations.
  S  2.  The division of housing and community renewal shall undertake a
comprehensive study of the present status of state and locally aided low
and middle income housing programs and make recommendations with respect
to the preservation, modernization, and expansion of the number of hous-
ing units provided by such programs. Such recommendations shall include,
but not be limited to, methods that may be employed by state  and  local
governments  to  retain  and  expand the existing inventory of state and
locally aided low and middle income  housing  so  as  to  preserve  such

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
