gross operating revenues derived from intrastate utility  operations  in
the last preceding calendar year, or other twelve month period as deter-
mined  by the chairman; provided, however, that no corporation or person
that is subject to the jurisdiction of the commission only with  respect
to  safety,  or  the  power authority of the state of New York, shall be
subject to the general assessment provided for under this subdivision.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
