AN  ACT  to amend the emergency tenant protection act of nineteen seven-
  ty-four, in relation to limited-profit  housing  companies  and  other
  buildings or structures which received project-based rental assistance

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

  Section 1.   Legislative findings and declaration  of  emergency.  The
legislature  hereby finds and declares that the serious public emergency
which led to the enactment of the existing laws  regulating  residential
rents  and  evictions  continues  to  exist; that such laws would better
serve the public interest if certain changes were made thereto,  includ-
ing  extending  to  certain  cities, towns and villages the authority to
provide for the regulation of rents and evictions with regard to housing
accommodations that cease or have ceased to  be  regulated  pursuant  to
article 2 of the private housing finance law, known as the Mitchell-Lama
law,  or  pursuant to project-based section eight contracts entered into
with the federal government.
  The legislature further  recognizes  that  severe  disruption  of  the
rental  housing market has occurred and threatens to be exacerbated as a
result of the abrupt termination of rent and  eviction  regulation  when
buildings  exit  the Mitchell-Lama program or when buildings cease to be
subject to project-based section  eight  contracts.  The  situation  had
permitted  speculative  and profiteering practices and has brought about
the loss of vital  and  irreplaceable  affordable  housing  for  working
persons and families.

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