AN ACT enacting the "Rockland Bergen Bi-state watershed flood prevention
  and protection act" and creating the Rockland  Bergen  Bi-state  River
  Commission

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

  Section 1. This act shall be known and may be cited as  the  "Rockland
Bergen Bi-state watershed flood prevention and protection act".
  S  2.   The legislature finds and declares that the states of New York
and New Jersey and their respective citizens share a common  concern  to
protect  their  personal  safety and property through the identification
and remediation of potential flood hazards  along  the  tributaries  and
watersheds  of  the Hackensack River, Mahwah River, Ramapo River, Saddle
River, and Sparkill Brook/Creek that cross the interstate border region.
The identification and remediation of potential flood hazards requires a
bi-state  comprehensive  approach.  A   bi-state   comprehensive   flood
prevention  approach  will also help ensure the preservation and mainte-
nance of the environmentally beneficial impacts of the  tributaries  and
watersheds  of  the Hackensack River, Mahwah River, Ramapo River, Saddle
River, and Sparkill Brook/Creek.   A bi-state  approach  will  encourage
open  space  and  recreational  opportunities  along the tributaries and
watersheds of the Hackensack River, Mahwah River, Ramapo  River,  Saddle
River,  and  Sparkill  Brook/Creek.  The  legislature further finds that
there has been a long history  of  cooperation  among  state  and  local
governmental  entities and various private organizations and individuals
in the vicinity of the tributaries  and  watersheds  of  the  Hackensack
River,   Mahwah   River,   Ramapo  River,  Saddle  River,  and  Sparkill
Brook/Creek.

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