first,  nineteen  hundred  ninety-one,  shall  consist  of  forty-seven]
FIFTY-SIX judges, EFFECTIVE JANUARY FIRST,  TWO  THOUSAND  FIFTEEN.  [At
least  one of the persons appointed to the office of judge of the family
court created by this section, shall be a  resident  of  the  county  of
Richmond  and  hereafter there] THERE shall be at least one family court
judge resident in each county of the city of New York.  [The  amount  of
