AN ACT to enact chapter  11-D  of  the  consolidated  laws,  to  be  the
  cultural  and heritage resources law, in relation to the preservation,
  enhancement and promotion of the state's cultural and heritage assets

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings and declaration of purpose. The legis-
lature  determines  that  the  state's  cultural and heritage assets are
major educational, inspirational and economic resources that  should  be
preserved,  enhanced and fully promoted. The state's cultural and herit-
age assets are world class destinations for  visitors  from  around  the
world  and  should be promoted as such. Having the cultural and heritage
assets spread among several state  agencies  and  departments  has  been
detrimental  to  the  full  utilization  of these assets. Therefore, the
legislature finds that streamlining and combining these assets into  one
agency  will  help each of the entities achieve its full mission for the
people of the state in a more productive manner.
  It is important that an integration  to  a  single  coordinated  state
office  be  effected  at once. It is recognized that this change must be
progressive, but expeditious.   The first step is  the  creation  of  an
office  of cultural and heritage resources. This act presumes that addi-
tional well-considered  steps  will  be  taken  to  affect  the  overall
cultural and heritage resources program envisioned.
  S  2. Chapter 11-D of the consolidated laws, constituting the cultural
and heritage resources law, is enacted to read as follows:
                  CHAPTER 11-D OF THE CONSOLIDATED LAWS
                   CULTURAL AND HERITAGE RESOURCES LAW
Article 1. Short title; definitions.                              SS 1-2
        2. Powers, duties and jurisdiction of the office of cultural

BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1.  The executive law is amended by adding a new article 28 to
