AN ACT to amend the general business law, in relation to filing require-
  ments  relating  to the sale of certain non-public real estate securi-
  ties offerings


  Section  1.  Paragraph  (a)  of  subdivision 1 of section 352-e of the
general business law, as amended by chapter 1085 of the laws of 1968, is
amended to read as follows:
  (a) It shall be illegal and prohibited for  any  person,  partnership,
corporation,  company,  trust  or  association, or any agent or employee
thereof, to make or take part in a public OR NON-PUBLIC offering or sale
in or from the state of New York of securities  constituted  of  partic-
ipation  interests  or  investments in real estate, mortgages or leases,
including stocks, bonds, debentures, evidences of  interest  or  indebt-
edness, limited partnership interests or other security or securities as
defined  in  section  three hundred fifty-two of this article, when such
securities consist primarily of participation interests  or  investments
in  one or more real estate ventures, including cooperative interests in
realty, unless and until there shall have been filed with the department
of law, prior to such offering, a written statement or statements, to be
known as an "offering statement" or "prospectus" concerning the  contem-
plated  offering which shall contain the information and representations
required by paragraph (b) of this subdivision unless the security offer-
ing is exempted hereunder or under  SUBDIVISION  TWO  OF  section  three
hundred  fifty-nine-f[,  subdivision  two,]  of  this article by rule or
action of the attorney general. The term "real estate" as used in  [the]
THIS  paragraph shall not include mineral, oil or timber leases or prop-
erties, or buildings,  structures,  land  or  other  realty  housing  or
containing  business offices or industry, owned or leased by the issuer,
where the issuer is not primarily engaged in the business of buying  and
selling  such  building  or other realty or leases or interests therein.
