AN  ACT  to  amend  the  real  property tax law, in relation to allowing
  certain special assessing units other  than  cities  to  adjust  their
  current base proportions

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivision 1 of section 1803-a of the  real  property  tax
law is amended by adding a new paragraph (aa) to read as follows:
  (AA)  NOTWITHSTANDING THE PROVISIONS OF PARAGRAPH (C) OF THIS SUBDIVI-
SION TO THE CONTRARY, IN A SPECIAL ASSESSING UNIT THAT IS NOT A CITY AND
FOR CURRENT BASE PROPORTIONS TO BE DETERMINED BY  TAXES  BASED  ON  SUCH
SPECIAL  ASSESSING  UNIT'S  TWO  THOUSAND  FIFTEEN  ASSESSMENT ROLL, THE
CURRENT BASE PROPORTION OF ANY CLASS SHALL NOT EXCEED THE ADJUSTED  BASE
PROPORTION  OR  ADJUSTED  PROPORTION,  WHICHEVER  IS APPROPRIATE, OF THE
IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING YEAR BY MORE THAN ONE PERCENT. WHERE THE  COMPUTA-
TION  PERFORMED  PURSUANT  TO  PARAGRAPH  (B)  OF THIS SUBDIVISION WOULD
OTHERWISE PRODUCE SUCH RESULT, THE CURRENT BASE PROPORTION OF SUCH CLASS
OR CLASSES SHALL BE LIMITED TO SUCH ONE PERCENT INCREASE AND THE  LEGIS-
LATIVE  BODY OF SUCH SPECIAL ASSESSING UNIT SHALL ALTER THE CURRENT BASE
PROPORTION OF ANY OR ALL REMAINING  CLASSES  SO  THAT  THE  SUM  OF  THE
CURRENT BASE PROPORTIONS EQUALS ONE.
  S  2.  This  act  shall take effect immediately and shall apply to the
levy of taxes based on the 2015 assessment roll in a  special  assessing
unit that is not a city.
