AN  ACT  to  amend  the  local  emergency  housing  rent control act, in
  relation to rent regulation laws

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

  Section  1.  Subdivision  5  of section 1 of chapter 21 of the laws of
1962, constituting the local emergency  housing  rent  control  act,  as
amended  by  chapter 82 of the laws of 2003 and the closing paragraph as
amended by chapter 422 of the laws  of  2010,  is  amended  to  read  as
follows:
  5.  Authority  for local rent control legislation.  Each city having a
population of one million or more, acting through its local  legislative
body,  may  adopt  and  amend local laws or ordinances in respect of the
establishment or designation of a city  housing  rent  agency.  When  it
deems such action to be desirable or necessitated by local conditions in
order  to  carry  out the purposes of this section, such city, except as
hereinafter provided, acting through its local legislative body and  not
otherwise,  may  adopt  and amend local laws or ordinances in respect of
the regulation and control  of  residential  rents,  including  but  not
limited  to  provision  for  the establishment and adjustment of maximum
rents, the classification of housing accommodations, the  regulation  of
evictions,  and  the  enforcement  of such local laws or ordinances. The
validity of any such local laws or ordinances, and the  rules  or  regu-
lations  promulgated  in  accordance therewith, shall not be affected by
and need not be consistent with the state emergency housing rent control

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