AN ACT to amend the legislative law, in relation to requiring the legis-
  lature to convene daily if the legislative passage of  the  budget  is
  not timely

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

  Section 1. The legislative law is amended by adding a new section  5-b
to read as follows:
  S  5-B. ABSENT OF BUDGET BY THE NEW FISCAL YEAR, THE LEGISLATURE SHALL
CONVENE DAILY. IF LEGISLATIVE PASSAGE OF THE BUDGET AS DEFINED IN SUBDI-
VISION THREE OF SECTION FIVE OF THIS ARTICLE HAS NOT OCCURRED  PRIOR  TO
THE  FIRST  DAY  OF ANY FISCAL YEAR, EACH HOUSE OF THE LEGISLATURE SHALL
CONVENE ON A DAILY BASIS UNTIL SUCH LEGISLATIVE PASSAGE  OF  THE  BUDGET
HAS OCCURRED.
  S  2.  Subdivision  3 of section 5 of the legislative law, as added by
chapter 635 of the laws of 1998, is amended to read as follows:
  3. "Legislative passage of the budget", solely  for  the  purposes  of
this  section  and [section] SECTIONS five-a AND FIVE-B of this article,
shall mean that the appropriation bill or bills submitted by the  gover-
nor pursuant to section three of article seven of the state constitution
have  been finally acted on by both houses of the legislature in accord-
ance with article seven of the state constitution and  the  state  comp-
troller  has  determined that such appropriation bill or bills that have
been finally acted on by the legislature are sufficient for the  ongoing
operation  and  support of state government and local assistance for the
ensuing fiscal year. In addition, legislation submitted by the  governor
pursuant  to  section  three  of article seven of the state constitution
determined necessary by the legislature for the effective implementation
