  Section  1.  Subdivision  2  of section 1744 of the public authorities
law, as added by chapter 738 of the laws of 1988, is amended to read  as
  2.  No action or proceeding for any cause whatever, other than the one
for personal injury, death, property damage  or  tort,  which  shall  be
governed  by  subdivision  one  of this section, relating to the design,
construction,  reconstruction,  improvement,   rehabilitation,   repair,
furnishing  or  equipping of educational facilities, shall be prosecuted
or maintained against the authority or any member,  officer,  agent,  or
employee  thereof, unless (i) it shall appear by and as an allegation in
the complaint or moving  papers,  that  a  detailed,  written,  verified
notice of each claim upon which any part of such action or proceeding is
founded was presented to the board within three months after the accrual
of  such claim, that at least thirty days have elapsed since such notice
was so presented and that the authority or the officer  or  body  having
the  power  to adjust or pay said claim has neglected or refused to make
an adjustment or payment thereof, and  (ii)  the  action  or  proceeding
shall  have  been  commenced  within one year after the happening of the
event upon which the claim is based;  provided,  however,  that  nothing
contained in this subdivision shall be deemed to modify or supersede any
provision  of  law  or  contract  specifying a shorter period of time in
which to commence such action or proceeding,  or  to  excuse  compliance
with  any other conditions required by contract to be satisfied prior to
the commencement of such action or proceeding.  IN THE CASE OF AN ACTION

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
