AN ACT to amend the administrative code of the city  of  New  York,  the

ing accommodation because of immediate and compelling necessity for  his
or her own personal use and occupancy AS HIS OR HER PRIMARY RESIDENCE or
for the use and occupancy of his or her immediate family AS THEIR PRIMA-
RY  RESIDENCE  provided,  however,  that  this  subdivision shall PERMIT
RECOVERY OF ONLY ONE HOUSING ACCOMMODATION AND SHALL not apply  where  a
member  of the household lawfully occupying the housing accommodation is
sixty-two years of age or older, has been a tenant in a housing accommo-
dation in that building for twenty years or more, or has  an  impairment
which  results  from  anatomical,  physiological or psychological condi-
tions, other than addiction to  alcohol,  gambling,  or  any  controlled
substance,  which  are demonstrable by medically acceptable clinical and
laboratory diagnostic techniques, and which are expected to be permanent
and which prevent the tenant from engaging in  any  substantial  gainful
employment; or

                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
