AN  ACT to amend the public housing law, in relation to low income hous-
  ing tax credit eligibility


  Section 1. Paragraph (b) of subdivision 5 and subdivision 6 of section
21  of the public housing law, as added by section 1 of part CC of chap-
ter 63 of the laws of 2000, are amended to read as follows:
  (b) would be a qualified low-income building under such section if the
20-50 test specified in subsection (g)(1) of such  section  were  disre-
garded  and  the 40-60 test specified in such subsection (requiring that
at least forty percent of residential units be both rent-restricted  and
occupied  by  individuals  whose income is sixty percent or less of area
median gross income) were a [40-90] 60-125 test.
  6. "Qualified basis" of an  eligible  low-income  building  means  the
qualified  basis  of such building determined under section 42(c) of the
internal revenue code, or which would be determined under  such  section
if  the  [40-90]  60-125  test specified in paragraph (b) of subdivision
five of this section applied under such section 42 to determine if  such
building were part of a qualified low-income housing project.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
