  Section  1.  Section  28  of  the  New York city charter is amended by
adding a new subdivision h to read as follows:
  H. (1) THE COUNCIL SHALL HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO ELECT TO REVIEW ANY NEW
YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH REGULATION BY VOTING TO TAKE JURISDICTION
WITHIN TWENTY DAYS AFTER THE CITY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH FILES ITS REPORT.
  (2) (A) AN APPLICATION WHICH IS SUBJECT  TO  ELECTIVE  REVIEW  BY  THE
COUNCIL,  SHALL  BE  REVIEWED IF SUCH APPLICATION WAS DISAPPROVED BY THE
COMMUNITY BOARD AND BOROUGH PRESIDENT, WAS  APPROVED  OR  APPROVED  WITH
MODIFICATIONS  BY  THE CITY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, AND THE BOROUGH PRESI-
DENT FILES AN OBJECTION TO THE CITY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH'S APPROVAL WITH
THE COUNCIL AND THE CITY  DEPARTMENT  OF  HEALTH  WITHIN  FIVE  DAYS  OF
RECEIPT OF THE CITY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH'S APPROVAL.
  (B)  WITHIN  FIFTY  DAYS OF RECEIPT OF THE CITY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH'S
REPORT ON AN APPLICATION THAT IS EITHER SUBJECT TO MANDATORY  REVIEW  OR
IS  "CALLED-UP" BY THE COUNCIL, THE COUNCIL SHALL HOLD A PUBLIC HEARING,
AND APPROVE, APPROVE WITH MODIFICATIONS OR DISAPPROVE  THE  DECISION  OF
THE CITY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH.
  (C)  IF, DURING THE COURSE OF ITS FIFTY-DAY REVIEW PERIOD, THE COUNCIL

MENT OF HEALTH. SUCH DEPARTMENT SHALL THEN DETERMINE IF THE MODIFICATION
IS OF SUCH SIGNIFICANCE THAT ADDITIONAL REVIEW  IS  NECESSARY.  IF  SUCH
DEPARTMENT  DETERMINES THAT ADDITIONAL REVIEW IS NEEDED, THE COUNCIL MAY
NOT ADOPT THE MODIFICATION. IF NO ADDITIONAL REVIEW IS NEEDED, THE COUN-
CIL CAN ADOPT THE APPLICATION WITH THE MODIFICATION.  WHEN  THE  COUNCIL
PROPOSES  A  MODIFICATION,  SUCH DEPARTMENT HAS FIFTEEN DAYS TO MAKE ITS
