AN ACT to repeal certain provisions of the general municipal law  relat-
  ing  to  urban  renewal  agencies; to repeal certain provisions of the
  general municipal law relating to industrial development agencies;  to
  repeal  certain  provisions  of the public authorities law relating to
  certain authorities; to repeal article 2-D of the  transportation  law
  relating  to  the  Utica transit authority; and to transfer any books,
  records and remaining rights of any dissolved authority  to  an  iden-
  tifiable location

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

  Section 1. Legislative intent. It is hereby declared to be a  substan-
tial  interest  of this state that residents, governments and businesses
have certainty in the corporate status and orderly dissolution of public
authorities, urban renewal agencies,  industrial  development  agencies,
and parking authorities, and that upon dissolution, their enabling stat-
utes  will be repealed and their books, records and remaining rights, if
any, will be transferred to an identifiable location. The welfare of the
state necessitates ensuring that the proliferation  of  moribund  public
benefit  corporations,  such  as  those included in this act found to be
defunct by the comptroller, the authorities budget office  and  the  New
York  state  commission  on  public  authority reform, does not continue
unchecked.
  S 2. Title 2 of article 15-B of the general municipal law is REPEALED.
  S 2-a. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, any
existing records, property, rights, titles and interest of  the  Sloats-
burg  urban renewal agency shall vest in and be possessed by the village
of Sloatsburg and its successors or assigns.

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