BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivision 10 of section 60.27 of the penal law, as  added
by chapter 310 of the laws of 1996, is amended to read as follows:
  10.  If  the  offense  of  which  a  person is convicted is defined in
section [150.10, 150.15  or  150.20]  145.00,  145.05,  145.10,  145.12,
145.30,  145.60  OR  ARTICLE  ONE  HUNDRED FIFTY of this chapter, and no
other victim who is a person is seeking restitution  in  the  case,  the
term "victim" as used in this section, in addition to its ordinary mean-
ing, shall mean any municipality which has expended funds or will expend
funds  for the purpose of restoration, rehabilitation or clean-up of the
site of the [arson] OFFENSE.   WHERE THE VICTIM  IS  A  MUNICIPALITY  AS
DEFINED  IN  THIS  SECTION,  THE COURT SHALL DIRECT THE DEFENDANT TO PAY
RESTITUTION.  Any restitution which [may] SHALL be required to  be  made
to  a  municipality  pursuant  to  this  section shall be limited to the
amount of funds reasonably expended or to be expended for the purpose of
restoration, rehabilitation or clean-up  of  the  site  of  the  [arson]
OFFENSE,  less the amount of any funds which have been or will be recov-
ered from any other source, and shall not include a designated surcharge
pursuant to subdivision eight of this section. Any  municipality  [seek-
ing]  RECEIVING restitution pursuant to this section shall file with the
court, district attorney and defense counsel an affidavit  stating  that
the funds reasonably expended or to be expended for which restitution is
being  sought  have  not  been  and will not be recovered from any other
source or in any other civil or criminal proceeding.   FOR  PURPOSES  OF
THIS  SECTION, THE TERM "MUNICIPALITY" SHALL MEAN A STATE, COUNTY, CITY,
TOWN, VILLAGE, SCHOOL DISTRICT, LIBRARY DISTRICT, FIRE  DISTRICT,  WATER

                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
