AN ACT to amend the general municipal law, in relation to  creating  the
  Peconic  Bay  regional  transportation  council; and providing for the
  repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

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

  Section  1.  Legislative  findings.  The legislature hereby finds that
over the past thirty years, rapid growth and development in the  Peconic
Bay region of Long Island, while providing for a successful economy, has
also  resulted  in  some  unavoidable, adverse impacts that threaten the
region's future quality of life and future economic prosperity.  Traffic
congestion  has  been one of the primary adverse impacts from such rapid
development.
  Expanding traffic congestion has  resulted  in  deteriorating  traffic
safety  with  increased  traffic  accidents and fatalities. In addition,
traffic congestion has resulted in increased trip delays, declining  air
quality, adverse impacts to historic and rural resources in the region's
villages  and  hamlets, parking problems, adverse impacts to residential
communities and neighborhoods resulting from the  diversion  of  traffic
from major highways and arteries to rural residential streets and roads.
  The  region's  tourist  and second home industries, the cornerstone of
its prosperity, are threatened if the adverse  consequences  of  traffic
congestion  are  not promptly and adequately addressed. Further, projec-
tions from the state department of transportation and local  governments
indicate that there will be a continued growth in year-round population,
