  effectiveness thereof

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

  Section 1. Section 8 of chapter 138 of the laws of 1998, amending  the
navigation  law  and  the state finance law relating to the operation of
personal watercraft and specialty prop-craft, as amended by chapter  188
of the laws of 2009, is amended to read as follows:
  S 8. This act shall take effect immediately; provided that section two
of  this  act  shall  take effect January 1, 2000 and shall apply to all
operators born on or after January 1, 2000 and shall apply to all opera-
tors born on or after January 1, 1981, provided  further  on  and  after
January  1,  2001 and before January 1, 2002 such section shall apply to
all operators born on or after January 1, 1978; provided further that on
and after January 1, 2002 and before January 1, 2003 such section  shall
apply  to  all  operators  born  on  or  after January 1, 1975; provided
further that on and after January 1, 2003 and  before  January  1,  2004

navigation law, as added by section two of this act, the commissioner of
parks, recreation and historic preservation is  authorized  by  rule  or
