provides for the elimination of mute swans from New York state.
  S  2.  a.  There  is  hereby established a committee to study the mute

legislature no later than one year after the effective date of this act.
  b. Such committee shall consist of seven members as  follows:    three
members who shall be appointed by the governor; two members who shall be
appointed  by the temporary president of the senate; and two members who
shall be appointed by the speaker of the assembly.  There  shall  be  no
