AN ACT authorizing the New York state division of housing and  community
  renewal  to  study  state  and locally aided housing programs and make
  recommendations for the preservation, modernization, and  increase  in
  the  supply of such housing; to amend the private housing finance law,
  in relation to providing a moratorium on the voluntary dissolution  of
  limited  profit, limited dividend and redevelopment housing companies;
  and providing for the repeal of  certain  provisions  upon  expiration
  thereof

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

  Section 1. New York state and its localities have  invested  for  more
than  a half century in the creation of low and middle income housing to
benefit those most in need and to the general benefit of state and local
economies. In many cases such housing has fallen into  disrepair  or  is
being  lost  as  affordable housing due to statutory provisions allowing
owners to dissolve housing companies.  The  unmet  need  for  affordable
housing  is presently greater than at any time in the state's history. A
temporary moratorium on the dissolution of any housing company is neces-
sary for the New York state division of housing and community renewal to
complete its work and make recommendations.
  S 2. The division of housing and community renewal shall  undertake  a
comprehensive study of the present status of state and locally aided low
and middle income housing programs and make recommendations with respect
to the preservation, modernization, and expansion of the number of hous-
ing units provided by such programs. Such recommendations shall include,
but  not  be limited to, methods that may be employed by state and local
governments to retain and expand the existing  inventory  of  state  and
locally  aided  low  and  middle  income  housing so as to preserve such

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
