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

  Section 1. This act shall be known and may be cited as  the  "UB  2020
flexibility and economic growth act".
  S  2.  Legislative  findings and intent.   The State University of New
York at Buffalo ranks as one of the foremost  research  academic  insti-
tutions in New York, and has the potential to become a regional economic
engine.  The  University's UB 2020 initiative, through which it seeks to
increase enrollment, expand its research capabilities and revitalize its
campuses, can serve as the catalyst for re-energizing  the  western  New
York economy and workforce development.
  In  light of the current condition of the western New York economy and
the State University of New York at  Buffalo's  desire  to  enhance  its
academic research capabilities, the University is the ideal candidate to
pilot  a  number  of  reforms  recently  proposed  by the New York State
