AN  ACT  to  amend the not-for-profit corporation law, in relation to an
  exemption to the residency requirement for firefighters  of  the  fire
  departments in the town of Fleming in Cayuga County


  Section 1. Subparagraph 3 of paragraph (c)  of  section  1402  of  the
not-for-profit corporation law, as amended by chapter 276 of the laws of
2010, is amended to read as follows:
  (3)  In towns outside of villages and fire districts, the consent of a
majority of the members of the town board to the  formation  of  a  fire
corporation  shall constitute an appointment of the persons named in the
certificate of incorporation as  town  firefighters.  Thereafter,  other
eligible  persons  may  be elected as members pursuant to the by-laws of
the fire corporation, but the election of a member must be  approved  by
the town board of each town which consented to the formation of the fire
corporation.  Such  a person shall be a resident of the territory speci-
fied in the certificate of incorporation or of  territory  outside  such
boundaries  which  is  afforded  fire protection by the fire corporation
pursuant to a contract for fire protection under which a cash  consider-
ation  is  received  by  the  corporation  or for which negotiations for
renewal of such a contract are pending. The membership of any  volunteer
member  shall  terminate  when he or she ceases to be a resident of such
inside or outside territory, except that the corporation  may  authorize
his  or  her continued membership where he or she notifies the secretary
of the fire corporation (a) that he or she plans to change  his  or  her
residence to a territory which is not in such inside or outside territo-
ry,  and  (b)  that by reason of his or her residence in the vicinity or
his or her usual occupation he or she will be available to render active
service as a volunteer firefighter in either such inside or such outside
territory. Voting for  such  authorization  shall  be  pursuant  to  the
by-laws.  Such  authorization shall not become effective unless approved
