AN ACT authorizing logo signage on a portion of interstate  90  for  the
  "Harriet Tubman Home"


  Section 1.  Notwithstanding any other law, rule or regulation  to  the
contrary,  the  New  York  state  thruway  authority ("authority") shall
provide, upon approval of an application by the Harriet Tubman  Home  in
the  city  of  Auburn, county of Cayuga for a specific service or "logo"
sign on interstate 90, an option for the payment of permit fees and  any
other  authorized  fees associated with such logo sign in equal install-
ments during the period of time that  such  permit  is  valid.  If  such
permit  holder  chooses  such  payment  option,  the  authority also may
require a down payment not to exceed twenty percent of such fees.  Noth-
ing  contained  herein  shall  be deemed to prohibit the payment of such
fees in full, or of such installments in advance or in  amounts  greater
than  would  otherwise  be  due,  at  the  option of such permit holder.
Provided, further, that in the event that the  Harriet  Tubman  Home  is
designated  as  an  historic  site  on the national register of historic
places, nothing contained herein shall be deemed to prohibit the author-
ity from erecting and installing appropriate signage therefor.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the sixtieth  day  after  it  shall
have become a law.

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