  Section 1. Section 2985 of the public authorities law  is  amended  by

  15. IN ADDITION TO ANY MONETARY LIABILITY THAT MAY BE IMPOSED PURSUANT
TO THIS SECTION, A PUBLIC AUTHORITY THAT OPERATES A TOLL HIGHWAY, BRIDGE

ADMINISTRATIVE FEE OR FEES ON AN OWNER, AN OPERATOR OR AN ACCOUNT HOLDER
THAT HAS VIOLATED TOLL COLLECTION REGULATIONS.
  16. ANY NOTICE REQUIRED TO BE SENT PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION  BY  FIRST
CLASS  MAIL  MAY  INSTEAD  BE SENT, WITH CONSENT, BY ELECTRONIC MEANS OF
COMMUNICATION. A MANUAL OR AUTOMATIC RECORD OF ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS
PREPARED IN THIS ORDINARY COURSE OF BUSINESS SHALL BE ADEQUATE  EVIDENCE
OF ELECTRONIC NOTICE.
  17. THE NEW YORK STATE THRUWAY AUTHORITY AND THE NEW YORK STATE BRIDGE
AUTHORITY  ARE AUTHORIZED TO ADOPT RULES AND REGULATIONS TO ESTABLISH AN
ADMINISTRATIVE TRIBUNAL  TO  ADJUDICATE  THE  LIABILITY  OF  OWNERS  FOR
