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

  Section 1. Legislative findings  and  declaration  of  emergency.  The
legislature  hereby finds and declares that the serious public emergency
which led to the enactment of the existing laws  regulating  residential
rents  and  evictions  continues  to  exist; that such laws would better
serve the public interest if certain changes were made thereto,  includ-
ing  the  continued  regulation  of  certain housing accommodations that
become vacant and the reinstatement of  regulation  of  certain  housing
accommodations that have been deregulated upon vacancy.
  The  legislature  further  recognizes  that  severe  disruption of the
rental housing market has occurred and threatens to be exacerbated as  a
result  of  the present state of the law in relation to the deregulation
of housing accommodations upon  vacancy.  The  situation  has  permitted
speculative and profiteering practices and has brought about the loss of
vital and irreplaceable affordable housing for working persons and fami-
lies.

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