Introduced  by  Sen. AMEDORE -- read twice and ordered printed, and when

AN ACT to amend the  environmental  conservation  law,  in  relation  to
  determinations  upon  the  need for an environmental impact statement,
  and completion of draft environmental impact statements  and  environ-
  mental impact statements

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

  Section 1. Subdivision  3  of  section  8-0109  of  the  environmental
conservation  law,  as  amended  by  chapter 252 of the laws of 1977, is
amended to read as follows:
  3. (A) An agency may require an applicant to submit  an  environmental
report  to  assist  the  agency  in  carrying  out its responsibilities,
including the initial determination and, (where the applicant  does  not
prepare the environmental impact statement), the preparation of an envi-
ronmental  impact  statement  under this article. The agency may request
such other information from an applicant necessary  for  the  review  of
environmental  impacts.  Notwithstanding any use of outside resources or
work, agencies shall make their own independent judgment of  the  scope,
contents and adequacy of an environmental impact statement.
  (B) IN THE EVENT AN AGENCY REQUIRES AN APPLICANT TO SUBMIT AN ENVIRON-
MENTAL  REPORT,  SUCH  AGENCY SHALL PROVIDE NOTICE THEREOF TO THE APPLI-
CANT.
  (I) UPON NOTICE OF THE REQUIREMENT TO SUBMIT AN ENVIRONMENTAL  REPORT,
AN  APPLICANT  SHALL SUBMIT SUCH REPORT TO THE AGENCY WITHIN SIXTY DAYS;
AND
  (II) UPON RECEIPT OF AN ENVIRONMENTAL REPORT FROM  AN  APPLICANT,  THE
AGENCY  SHALL, WITHIN FORTY DAYS, REVIEW AND MAKE A DETERMINATION OF THE
NEED FOR AN ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT AND THE SUBMISSION OF A DRAFT
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT, AND ANY CONDITIONS RELATING TO THE SCOPE
OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT OR ACTION.
  THE TIME PERIODS ESTABLISHED IN THIS PARAGRAPH MAY ONLY BE  WAIVED  BY
MUTUAL CONSENT OF THE AGENCY AND THE APPLICANT.

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