AN ACT authorizing the reinstatement of prior approved work permits  and
  waiving the requirements of section 35 and subdivision 2 of section 36
  of  the  general  city law as such provisions relate to rebuilding and
  repairing homes devastated by Hurricane Sandy in the city of New York;

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

  Section  1. Legislative intent. The storms, rains and floods of Hurri-
cane Sandy beginning on October 29, 2012 and  ending  November  3,  2012
catastrophically  impacted  real  property  situated  in the city of New
York. Storm surge in the Breezy Point neighborhood  in  the  borough  of
Queens  severely  damaged or destroyed approximately 167 homes, followed
by a major fire which destroyed approximately 127 homes.  Other areas of
the city of New York were similarly impacted.  Homeowners in the city of
New York have long been required to submit applications with the depart-
ment of buildings and board of standards  and  appeals  for  permits  to
improve and upgrade their residences pursuant to the requirements of the
general  city  law. The process of review of such applications and ulti-
mate grant of the appeal to the general city law  can  last  nearly  one
year  or more. The legislature finds that it is in the best interests of
homeowners in the city of New York to expedite the rebuilding and repair
of homes devastated in the wake of Hurricane Sandy through waiver of the
requirements of sections 35 and 36 of the general city law for a  period
of 12 months.
  S  2.  Definitions.  For the purposes of this act, the following terms
shall have the following meanings:

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

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

  Section  1.  Legislative  findings  and  intent. The storms, rains and
floods of Hurricane Sandy beginning  on  October  29,  2012  and  ending
November 3, 2012 catastrophically impacted real property situated in the
city  of  New York. Storm surges in the Breezy Point neighborhood in the
borough of Queens severely damaged or destroyed many buildings, followed
by a major fire which destroyed additional buildings.  Pursuant  to  the
requirements  of sections 35 and 36 of the general city law, owners must
submit  applications  to  the  board  of  standards  and   appeals   for
construction  subject  to the requirements of these provisions. However,
the unprecedented number of applications that  could  result  from  this
storm  might  hinder the expeditious repair and reconstruction of build-
ings in the area.
  The legislature finds that it is in the best interests  of  owners  of
homes and other buildings in Breezy Point to expedite the rebuilding and
repair  of  such  buildings  devastated  in  the wake of Hurricane Sandy
through waiver of the requirements of sections 35 and 36 of the  general
city law.
