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

  Section  1.  Section  2855  of the public authorities law, as added by
section 1 of part KK of chapter 59 of the laws of 2006,  is  amended  to
read as follows:
  S  2855.  Electronic method of payment; periodic charges.  1. Notwith-
standing the provisions of any law to the  contrary,  if  any  authority
shall  offer  any  electronic  method of payment for tolls, fares, fees,
rentals, or other charges, including but not limited to a system  called
E-ZPass,  such authority shall not impose any periodic administrative or
other charge for the  privilege  of  using  such  electronic  method  of
payment  for such charges. Nothing in this section shall be construed to
prohibit any  authority  from  making  any  charge  for  extra  services
requested  by  a holder of such electronic method of payment, any charge
for lost or damaged equipment, or for  defaults,  such  as  charges  for
dishonored  checks.  The  authority  shall  not enter any agreement with
bondholders that would require the imposition of administrative or other
periodic charges relating to electronic methods of payment prohibited by
this section.
  2. NO AUTHORITY OFFERING ANY ELECTRONIC METHOD OF PAYMENT SHALL IMPOSE
ANY PERIODIC ADMINISTRATIVE OR OTHER CHARGE  FOR  FAILURE  TO  USE  SUCH
METHOD OF PAYMENT OR OTHERWISE IMPOSE ADDITIONAL ADMINISTRATIVE OR OTHER
CHARGES  FOR  DELIVERING PAYMENT THROUGH NON-ELECTRONIC MEANS.  NOTWITH-
STANDING ANY PROVISIONS OF LAW TO THE  CONTRARY,  AUTHORITIES  SHALL  BE
PROHIBITED  FROM  IMPOSING  ANY PERIODIC ADMINISTRATIVE OR OTHER CHARGE,
