AN ACT to amend  the  local  emergency  housing  rent  control  act,  in
  relation to rent regulation laws

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

  Section 1. Subdivision 5 of section 1 of chapter 21  of  the  laws  of
1962,  constituting  the  local  emergency  housing rent control act, as
amended by chapter 82 of the laws of 2003 and the closing  paragraph  as
amended  by  chapter  422  of  the  laws  of 2010, is amended to read as
follows:
  5. Authority for local rent control legislation. Each  city  having  a
population  of one million or more, acting through its local legislative
body, may adopt and amend local laws or ordinances  in  respect  of  the
establishment  or  designation  of  a  city housing rent agency. When it
deems such action to be desirable or necessitated by local conditions in
order to carry out the purposes of this section, such  city,  except  as
hereinafter  provided, acting through its local legislative body and not
otherwise, may adopt and amend local laws or ordinances  in  respect  of
the  regulation  and  control  of  residential  rents, including but not
limited to provision for the establishment  and  adjustment  of  maximum
rents,  the  classification of housing accommodations, the regulation of
evictions, and the enforcement of such local  laws  or  ordinances.  The
validity  of  any  such local laws or ordinances, and the rules or regu-
lations promulgated in accordance therewith, shall not  be  affected  by
and need not be consistent with the state emergency housing rent control
law  or  with rules and regulations of the state division of housing and
community renewal.
