  Section  1.  The public service law is amended by adding a new section

NOTWITHSTANDING  ANY  LAW,  RULE,  REGULATION  OR ORDER TO THE CONTRARY,

EFFICIENCY PORTFOLIO STANDARD SHALL APPLY TO,  OR  BE  APPLIED  TO,  ANY
ELECTRIC  OR GAS BILL FOR A RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMER THAT IS AT LEAST SIXTY-
FIVE YEARS OF AGE WHOSE INCOME LEVEL WOULD QUALIFY SUCH CUSTOMER FOR THE
HOME ENERGY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM AS DESCRIBED IN PART 393 OF TITLE  18  OF
THE NEW YORK CODES, RULES AND REGULATIONS. NO REVENUES FOREGONE BY A GAS
CORPORATION  OR  AN ELECTRIC CORPORATION OR ANY STATE ENTITY AS A RESULT
OF THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS SECTION SHALL BE RECOVERED FROM ANY  OTHER
CUSTOMER  OR  CLASS  OF  CUSTOMERS. THE COMMISSION SHALL ADOPT RULES AND
REGULATIONS RELATING TO AGE AND INCOME VERIFICATION AND ANY OTHER  RULES
AND  REGULATIONS  AS  IT  DEEMS  NECESSARY  AND  PROPER TO IMPLEMENT THE
PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day  after  it  shall
have  become  a  law;  provided  however, that effective immediately the

any  rule,  regulation, order or policy necessary for the implementation
of this act on or before such effective date.
