  Section 1. Subdivisions 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of section  27-1012  of  the
environmental  conservation  law,  as  added  by section 8 of part SS of
chapter 59 of the laws of 2009, are amended and a new subdivision 5-a is

into  the  refund  value  account shall be made not less frequently than
every five business days. All interest, dividends and returns earned  on
the  refund  value account shall be paid directly into said account. The
monies in such accounts shall be kept separate and apart from all  other
monies  in  the possession of the deposit initiator. The commissioner of
taxation and finance may specify a system of accounts and records to  be
maintained with respect to accounts established under this subdivision.
  2.  Payments  of  refund  values  pursuant  to section 27-1007 of this
