  Section  1.  Short  title. This act shall be known and may be cited as
the "veterans' memorials preservation act".
  § 2. Definitions. For the purposes of this act:
  (a) a "memorial" is any park, monument, field,  open  land,  grove  of
trees,  building, structure, artwork, tablet, plaque, wall, or any other
structure that has been donated to, or constructed by, a  public  entity
as a memorial to veterans of any war, conflict, or police action engaged
in  by the armed forces of the United States, or any state of the United
States, or the New York national guard.
  (b) a "public entity" is any governmental body of any kind, including,
but not limited to, the state, a city, town,  village,  borough,  school
district or public authority.
  § 3.  Memorials  shall be preserved and be open to the public. (a) Any
public entity that has created or received a gift of  a  memorial  shall
not  alter,  destroy,  reconfigure,  adjust, change, modify or move such
memorial, or cause or permit any person to commit such  acts;  provided,
however, that such acts are permitted when reasonably necessary.
  (b)  Any  public entity that has created a memorial or accepted a gift
of a memorial shall maintain the memorial in a reasonable manner.
  (c) A public entity shall not restrict access to a memorial except  as
reasonably necessary.
  § 4. This act shall take effect immediately.
