AN ACT to amend the tax law, in relation to the definition of the metro-
  politan  commuter  transportation  district  for  the  purposes of the
  metropolitan commuter transportation mobility tax; and  to  amend  the
  public  authorities  law,  in  relation  to requiring the metropolitan
  transportation authority to renegotiate the  joint  service  operating
  agreement with the state of Connecticut

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings. Pursuant to chapter 25 of the laws of
2009, the legislature did enact the metropolitan mobility tax within the
twelve  county  region  constituting  the  metropolitan   transportation
district.  The  legislature hereby finds that the residents of the towns
of Brookhaven, East Hampton, Riverhead,  Shelter  Island,  Southold  and
Southampton  in  the  county  of  Suffolk  receive  minimal mass transit
services from the metropolitan transportation authority. Further,  these
towns  already  pay  substantial  taxes  to  the  MTA  for these minimal
services, including increased sales taxes and mortgage recording  taxes.
It  has  been estimated these six towns contribute more than $60 million
annually to the MTA than they receive back in service.
  In the interest of tax fairness and to avoid such additional inequita-
ble taxation on these towns, it is the purpose of  this  act  to  exempt
such  towns  from the newly adopted metropolitan commuter transportation
mobility tax.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
