Introduced  by  Sen.  LITTLE -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules

AN ACT to amend the  environmental  conservation  law,  in  relation  to
  providing  for  the settlement of a land dispute between the state and
  private parties with regard to parcels  in  township  40,  Totten  and
  Crossfield Purchase, in the town of Long Lake, county of Hamilton

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Article 9 of the environmental conservation law is  amended
by adding a new title 19 to read as follows:
                                 TITLE 19
                      TOWNSHIP FORTY SETTLEMENT ACT
SECTION 9-1901. LEGISLATIVE PURPOSE AND INTENT.
        9-1903. DEFINITIONS.
        9-1905. LIST OF DISPUTED PARCELS.
        9-1907. PROCESS FOR CLEARING TITLE.
        9-1909. ATTORNEY GENERAL TO FILE SUIT.
        9-1911. CONVEYANCES TO THE STATE.
        9-1913. ADIRONDACK PARK AGENCY JURISDICTION.
        9-1915. NOTICE OF NONPARTICIPATION FORMAT.
S 9-1901. LEGISLATIVE PURPOSE AND INTENT.
  1.  DURING  THE  LAST  ONE  HUNDRED  YEARS, BOTH THE STATE AND PRIVATE
PARTIES HAVE CLAIMED TITLE TO  IDENTICAL  PORTIONS  OF  TOWNSHIP  FORTY,
TOTTEN  AND  CROSSFIELD  PURCHASE,  IN  THE TOWN OF LONG LAKE, COUNTY OF
HAMILTON.  INDEED, SOME PRIVATE PARTIES HAVE  OCCUPIED  AND  IMPROVED  A
NUMBER  OF  SUCH  PARCELS  TO  WHICH THE STATE CLAIMS TITLE AND, IN MANY
CASES, BOTH THE STATE AND  PRIVATE  PARTIES  HAVE  PAID  TAXES  ON  SUCH
PARCELS. IN THE LAST SEVERAL DECADES, THE STATE AND SOME PRIVATE PARTIES
HAVE  COMMENCED  LITIGATION,  AT  SIGNIFICANT  EXPENSE  AND WITH LIMITED
SUCCESS, TO ESTABLISH THEIR RESPECTIVE CLAIMS OVER DISPUTED PARCELS.  AS
A  RESULT  OF LONGSTANDING CLAIMS TO DISPUTED PARCELS, THE FREE TRANSFER
OF THE PARCELS HAS BEEN INHIBITED, THEREBY CREATING ECONOMIC AND  SOCIAL
HARDSHIP  IN TOWNSHIP FORTY WHICH, IN TURN, HAS PREVENTED BOTH STATE AND
PRIVATE PARTIES FROM THE FULL USE AND  ENJOYMENT  OF  THE  PARCELS.  THE

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