AN ACT to amend the New York state urban development corporation act, in
  relation  to  blighted  property  and  blighted  areas;  and to repeal
  certain provisions of such act relating thereto


  Section 1.  Section 2 of section 1 of chapter 174 of the laws of 1968,
constituting  the  New York state urban development corporation act, the
ninth undesignated paragraph as added by chapter 280 of the laws of 1984
and the tenth undesignated paragraph as amended by chapter  747  of  the
laws of 2005, is amended to read as follows:
  S  2.  Statement  of  legislative  findings and purposes. It is hereby
found and declared that there exists in [urban] SOME areas of this state
a condition of substantial and persistent unemployment and  underemploy-
ment  which  causes  hardship  to  many individuals and families, wastes
vital human resources, increases the public assistance  burdens  of  the
state  and municipalities, impairs the security of family life, contrib-
utes to the growth of crime and delinquency, prevents many of our  youth
from  finishing  their  [educations] EDUCATION, impedes the economic and
physical development of municipalities and adversely affects the welfare
and prosperity of all the people of the  state.  [Many  existing  indus-
trial,  manufacturing  and commercial facilities in such urban areas are
obsolete and inefficient, dilapidated, and without adequate mass  trans-
portation  facilities  and  public services. Many of such facilities are
underutilized or in the process of being  vacated,  creating  additional
unemployment.  Technological advances and the provision of modern, effi-
cient facilities in other states will speed the obsolescence  and  aban-
donment  of existing facilities causing serious injury to the economy of
