  tion thereof

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

  Section 1. Prior to the adoption of any management plan for mute swans
(cygnus  olor), a bird species for which the Atlantic flyway council has
issued a draft management plan, the department of environmental  conser-
vation  shall,  after the effective date of this act, at a minimum, hold
not less than two public hearings in areas with mute  swan  populations,
following  adequate  public  notice,  and, after the last of such public
hearings, include a public comment period of not  less  than  forty-five
days. Any such management plan shall at a minimum:
  (a) give priority to non-lethal management techniques;
  (b)  fully document the scientific basis for future population projec-
tions;
  (c) fully document the scientific  basis  for  current  and  projected
environmental damage;
  (d) include a public education component; and
  (e) include responses to all substantive public comments.
  S  2.  This  act shall take effect immediately and shall expire and be
deemed repealed two years after such effective date.
