  Section  1.  On or after July 1, 2014, any corporation formed pursuant
to chapter 880 of the laws of 1937 or chapter 124 of the  laws  of  1952
may elect, notwithstanding that it may have both charitable and business
purposes  and notwithstanding subdivision (c) of section 201 of the not-
for-profit corporation law, to be a  non-charitable  corporation  under,
and  as defined in section 102 of the not-for-profit corporation law, by
providing written notice of such election to the  attorney  general  and

7-A  of  the  executive law and section 8-1.4 of the estates, powers and
trusts law, and regulations adopted thereunder. Every such notice  shall

the not-for-profit corporation law unless  (a)  the  supreme  court  has
granted  an  order  approving  the  plan  of merger or consolidation and
authorizing the filing of the certificate as provided in  section  907-a
of  the  not-for-profit  corporation  law  as if such section applied to
