AN ACT to amend the New York state urban development corporation act, in
  relation to the small business regional revolving loan trust fund  and
  the small business regional revolving loan program

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

  Section 1. Statement of legislative  intent.  The  legislature  hereby
finds  and  declares  that small businesses are the economic backbone of
the state and the source of a majority  of  new  jobs.  The  legislature
further finds that such businesses often have difficulty obtaining small
amounts of capital from traditional banking organizations that is neces-

job  opportunities  in  the  state by revitalizing the urban development
corporation's regional revolving loan program and re-naming it the small
business regional revolving loan program.
  S 2. The New York state urban development corporation created by chap-

corporation act, each  existing  regional  corporation  administering  a
small business regional revolving loan fund and to either recertify such
regional corporation or decertify such regional corporation and competi-
tively  select  a successor corporation to administer the small business
regional revolving loan fund.  In the case of regions that do not have a
