AN ACT to amend the public authorities law, in relation  to  authorizing
  the power authority of the state of New York and the Long Island power

finds and determines that:
  1. The state's vital electric transmission grid  is  aging,  congested

economic well-being of the people of the state of New York.
  2. The condition and operation of the  state's  electric  transmission
grid  is  a matter of state concern, and it is in the public interest to

also encourage investments  in  new  energy-related  infrastructure  and
technologies,  facilitate the development and integration into the power
grid of renewable energy resources, and stimulate and  support  economic
development in the state. Public-private transmission projects undertak-
