  Section 1. Section 76 of the public service law, as amended by chapter
82 of the laws of 1998, is amended to read as follows:
  S  76.  Rates charged veteran organizations, VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANIES,
VOLUNTEER AMBULANCE COMPANIES,  religious  bodies  and  community  resi-
dences.  No gas corporation, electric corporation or municipality shall,
directly or indirectly, charge, demand, collect or receive from any post
or hall owned or leased by a not-for-profit corporation that is a veter-
ans' organization, VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANY, VOLUNTEER  AMBULANCE  COMPANY
or  corporation or association organized and conducted in good faith for
religious purposes, including the operation by such corporation or asso-
ciation of a school, notwithstanding that secular subjects are taught at
such school, or from a community residence  as  defined  in  subdivision
twenty-eight,  twenty-eight-a  or  twenty-eight-b of section 1.03 of the
mental hygiene law, provided, however,  that  such  residence  shall  be
operated  by a not-for-profit corporation and if supervisory staff is on
site on a twenty-four hour per day basis, that  the  residence  provides
living  accommodations  for fourteen or fewer residents, a rate, regard-
less of the type of service offered, for any  gas  or  electric  service
utilized  exclusively  in  connection  with  such  veteran organization,
VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANY, VOLUNTEER AMBULANCE COMPANY or  for  such  reli-
gious  purposes  or  utilized  exclusively  at  such community residence
greater than the  rates  or  charges  charged,  demanded,  collected  or
received  by  such gas corporation, electric corporation or municipality
