AN ACT to amend the New York state urban development corporation act, in
  relation to creating the New York state innovative energy and environ-
  mental technology program

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

  Section 1.  Legislative  intent.  The  legislature  hereby  finds  and
declares  that  the success of innovative energy and environmental tech-
nology-oriented businesses with growth potential  is  essential  to  the
continued  economic health and security of New York state. It is further
found that the development of new products to assist  mature  industries
undergoing  dramatic changes or facing increasing international competi-
tion with reducing energy costs and complying with  environmental  regu-
lations,  can  serve to retain, and even increase, employment.  However,
commercialization of these products  is  restrained  as  numerous  small
businesses are limited by lack of early stage financing.
  Therefore,  the  legislature seeks to provide early stage funds, via a
grants program, to stimulate the creation of a substantial number of new
businesses and jobs in the energy and environmental sector.
  S 2. Section 1 of chapter 174 of the laws of  1968,  constituting  the
New York state urban development corporation act, is amended by adding a
new section 16-v to read as follows:
  S  16-V. NEW YORK STATE INNOVATIVE ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY
PROGRAM. 1. DEFINITIONS. AS USED IN THIS SUBSECTION, THE FOLLOWING WORDS
AND TERMS SHALL HAVE THE FOLLOWING MEANINGS:
  (A) "INNOVATIVE ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES" SHALL MEAN ALL  METHODS  USED  TO
PRODUCE,  DISTRIBUTE,  CONSERVE  AND  STORE ENERGY BY METHODS WHICH HAVE
SIGNIFICANT POTENTIAL FOR COMMERCIALIZATION, WITH EMPHASIS ON  RENEWABLE

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