AN ACT to amend the general municipal law, in relation  to  restrictions
  on funds of industrial development agencies


  Section 1. Subdivision 2 of section 862 of the general municipal  law,
as  added  by  section 1 of part J of chapter 59 of the laws of 2013, is
amended to read as follows:
  (2) (a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of  this  subdivision,  no
financial  assistance  of the agency shall be provided in respect of any
project where facilities or property that are primarily used  in  making
retail  sales  to customers who personally visit such facilities consti-
tute more than one-third of the total project cost. For the purposes  of
this  article,  "retail  sales"  shall  mean:  (i) sales by a registered
vendor under article twenty-eight of the tax law  primarily  engaged  in
the  retail  sale  of tangible personal property, as defined in subpara-
graph (i) of paragraph four of subdivision (b) of section eleven hundred
one of the tax law; or (ii)  sales  of  a  service  to  such  customers.
Except,  however, that tourism destination projects shall not be prohib-
ited by this subdivision. For the purpose of  this  paragraph,  "tourism
destination"  shall  mean  a  location  or  facility  which is likely to
attract a significant number  of  visitors  from  outside  the  economic
development  region  as established by section two hundred thirty of the
economic development law, in which the project is located.
  (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (a) of  this  subdivi-
sion,  financial assistance may, however, be provided to a project where
facilities or property that are primarily used in making retail sales of
goods or services to customers who personally visit such  facilities  to
obtain  such  goods  or  services  constitute more than one-third of the
total project cost, where: (i) the predominant purpose  of  the  project
