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

  Section 1. Subdivision 1 of section 2827-a of the  public  authorities
law,  as added by chapter 506 of the laws of 2009, is amended to read as
follows:
  1. Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, no state  authority  shall
hereafter  have  the power to organize any subsidiary corporation unless
the legislature shall have enacted a law granting such  state  authority
such  power  for  the organization of a specific corporation[, provided,
however, that a state authority may organize  a  subsidiary  corporation
pursuant to the following requirements:
  a. the purpose for which the subsidiary corporation shall be organized
shall  be  for  a  project or projects which the state authority has the
power to pursue pursuant to its corporate purposes;
  b. the primary reason for which the subsidiary  corporation  shall  be
organized  shall  be  to  limit  the  potential  liability impact of the
subsidiary's project or projects on the authority or  because  state  or
federal  law  requires  that  the  purpose of a subsidiary be undertaken
through a specific corporate structure; and
  c. the]. ANY subsidiary corporation shall make the reports  and  other
disclosures  as are required of state authorities, unless the subsidiary
corporation's operations and finances are consolidated with those of the
authority of which it is a subsidiary.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
