  Section  1.  Paragraph  (g)  of  subdivision 3 of section 461-l of the
social services law, as amended by chapter 593 of the laws of  2005,  is
amended to read as follows:
  (g)  Notwithstanding  any  other provision of law to the contrary, any
assisted living program having less  than  seventy-five  authorized  bed
slots,  located  in  a county with a population of more than one hundred
ten thousand and less than one hundred fifty thousand persons BASED UPON

living beds available as part of this demonstration  program  by  up  to
twenty-five  percent  of  its  bed  level as of July first, two thousand
five; provided, however, that such program shall otherwise  satisfy  all
