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

  Section 1. Legislative findings.  The  legislature  hereby  finds  and
declares  that the power of the people of this state to call a constitu-
tional convention to periodically reevaluate their  social  contract  is
one  of  the great democratic mechanisms in existence.  It is important,
however, to ensure that the people of this state are  fully  represented
and have fair access to this important process.
  S  2.  Subdivision  1  and  the opening paragraph and paragraph (h) of
subdivision 2 of section 6-136 of the election  law,  subdivision  1  as
amended  by  chapter  200  of the laws of 1996, the opening paragraph of
subdivision 2 as amended by chapter 659 of the laws of  1994  and  para-
graph (h) of subdivision 2 as amended by chapter 79 of the laws of 1992,
are amended and three new subdivisions 2-a, 4 and 5 are added to read as
follows:
  1.  Petitions  for any office to be filled by the voters of the entire
state, EXCEPT THE OFFICE OF DELEGATE-AT-LARGE TO A CONVENTION TO  REVISE
AND  AMEND  THE  STATE  CONSTITUTION,  must  be  signed by not less than
fifteen thousand or five per centum, whichever  is  less,  of  the  then
enrolled  voters of the party in the state (excluding voters in inactive
status), of whom not less than one hundred or five per centum, whichever
is less, of such enrolled voters shall reside in each of one-half of the
congressional districts of the state.  PETITIONS FOR THE OFFICE OF DELE-
GATE-AT-LARGE TO A CONVENTION TO REVISE AND AMEND THE STATE CONSTITUTION
