AN ACT to amend  the  economic  development  law,  in  relation  to  the
  provision  of matching funds to tourist promotion agencies for encour-
  aging visitation to state parks and historic sites


  Section  1.  Subdivisions  (a)  and (e) of section 164 of the economic
development law, as amended by chapter 563 of  the  laws  of  1985,  are
amended to read as follows:
  (a)  The  commissioner is hereby authorized to match funds expended by
recognized tourist promotion agencies and to  set  reasonable  deadlines
for  the  submission  of  applications  for  each fiscal year covered by
appropriations in order to assist such  agencies  in  the  financing  of
their  recognized  advertising  programs.  Before  any such funds may be
expended, the tourist promotion agency shall have  made  application  to
the  department  for  such  funds,  and shall have therein set forth the
schedule, budget, scope, and theme of the proposed  advertising  program
to  be undertaken for the purpose of encouraging and stimulating tourist
culture  and  convention activities in the county or counties within its
area. Said application shall further state, under oath  or  affirmation,
with  evidence  thereof  satisfactory  to  the department, the amount of
funds held by, or committed or  subscribed  to,  the  tourist  promotion
agency  for  the  purposes  herein  described and the amount of matching
funds for which application is made, and provided that  all  advertising
purchased  with  funds  appropriated under this act shall follow central
conceptual themes used by the department in its  advertising  for  state
tourism  promotion  including  using any logotype or similar advertising
construct in use by the department.

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