  conditional renewal notices to policyholders

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

  Section 1. Subdivision 5 of section 54 of  the  workers'  compensation
law,  as  amended  by section 23 of part GG of chapter 57 of the laws of
2013, is amended to read as follows:
  5.  (A)  Cancellation  and  termination  of  insurance  contracts.  No
contract  of  insurance issued by an insurance carrier against liability
arising under this chapter shall be cancelled within the time limited in
such contract for its expiration unless notice is given as  required  by
this  section.   When cancellation is due to non-payment of premiums and

to  the  expiration  of the time stated in such notice, the cancellation

under this chapter unless at least thirty days prior to  its  expiration
notice  of  intention  not  to renew has been filed in the office of the
chair and also served on the employer.
  Such notice shall be served on the employer by delivering it  to  him,
