the  MTA  is  scheduled  to  increase  fares and tolls again another 7.5
percent in both January 2013 and January 2015. In addition, the MTA  has
cut services that have adversely impacted mass transit riders. It is the
intent  of the legislature that the MTA use the savings that accrue from
this act for maintenance and operations and to ensure that mass  transit
riders do not face any further service cuts.
  S  2.  Subdivision 4 of section 2976 of the public authorities law, as
added by section 12 of part E of chapter 494 of the  laws  of  2009,  is
amended to read as follows:
  4.  The  provisions  of subdivisions one and two of this section shall
not apply TO BONDS ISSUED BY THE METROPOLITAN  TRANSPORTATION  AUTHORITY
AND to recovery act bonds issued by the state of New York municipal bond
bank  agency in connection with local American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act pursuant to section two thousand four hundred thirty-six-b  of  this
chapter.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.



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