AN  ACT  authorizing  the state university of New York at Stony Brook to
  lease certain lands

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  findings.  Chapter  629  of the Laws of 2008
provided the state university of New York at Stony Brook with the oppor-
tunity through the generosity of a private donor to  create  a  facility
dedicated  to advancing knowledge in the fields of geometry and physics.
In furtherance thereof, the legislature determined that  the  university
foundation  of  the  state university of New York at Stony Brook was the
appropriate body to design and construct a Center for Geometry and Phys-
ics adjacent to existing  campus  facilities,  which  has  enhanced  the
academic mission of the university and provides a unique opportunity for
education,  research  and economic benefit to the region, nation and the
world.
  The Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, which opened in  2010,  is
poised  for  enhancement and expansion of programmatic use. The building
as well as the program is divided into two  distinct  areas:  the  lower
floors, which are public areas, including a dining facility; and the top
three  floors,  which  are  secure  areas and house faculty and research
areas. The project addition envisioned will  increase  functionality  of
the  facility and expand programmatic use by adding a second elevator at
the north side of the building to serve the public areas as well as  the
dining  facility.  The  project also will add office space and provide a
modest increase to the dining area.
  The legislature further finds that the state university  of  New  York
and  the state university of New York at Stony Brook will benefit if the
design and construction of  the  project  addition  is  assumed  by  the
university  foundation  only  until such time as the project addition is
completed. The legislature determines that the academic mission and  the
goals  of  the  state  university of New York at Stony Brook in the full
utilization of the properties in furtherance of its mission, can be best
