  NYC transit authority to create annual reports concerning  actions  to
  reduce noise


  Section 1. Subdivision 4 of section 1204-a of the  public  authorities
law,  as added by chapter 736 of the laws of 1982, is amended to read as
  4. [Within twelve months of the  completion  of  the  study  conducted
pursuant  to subdivision two of this section, and at twelve month inter-
vals thereafter, the] THE authority shall submit to the governor and the
legislature [comprehensive] ANNUAL  reports  detailing  the  authority's
progress  to date in abating subway noise. The report shall include, but
not be limited  to  an  itemized  summary  of  all  monies  spent,  bids
requested  and  received,  contracts  let, and actual work done on noise
abatement programs during the previous period. Any and all subway  noise
measurements  made  during  the previous period shall be included, with,
whenever possible, analyses of such measurements.
  Such ANNUAL report shall also  include  a  detailed  analysis  of  all
FUTURE noise abatement activities planned for the [next] UPCOMING twelve
months.  [Following the first twelve month interval these] THESE reports
shall also include comprehensive statements  of  progress  made  on  all
planned  noise  abatement  activities  included  in  the previous annual
  Nothing herein shall preclude such report from being  incorporated  in
the authority's annual capital report submitted pursuant to the "capital
financing  and  services  system act of nineteen hundred eighty-one," so
long as it is maintained as a separate, distinct and identifiable compo-
nent in such report.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
