AN  ACT  to  amend  the  administrative code of the city of New York, in
  relation to possession of a housing accommodation subject to the  city
  rent and rehabilitation law by an owner for personal use and occupancy


  Section 1. Paragraph 1 of subdivision  b  of  section  26-408  of  the
administrative  code  of  the  city  of  New  York is amended to read as
  (1) The landlord seeks in good faith to recover possession of a  hous-
ing  accommodation  [because  of immediate and compelling necessity] for
his or her own personal use and occupancy or for the use  and  occupancy
of  his or her immediate family provided, however, that this subdivision
shall not apply where a member of the household lawfully  occupying  the
housing  accommodation  is  sixty-two years of age or older[, has been a
tenant in a housing accommodation in that building for twenty  years  or
more,] or has an impairment which results from anatomical, physiological
or  psychological conditions, other than addiction to alcohol, gambling,
or any controlled substance, which are demonstrable by medically accept-
able clinical  and  laboratory  diagnostic  techniques,  and  which  are
expected  to  be permanent and which prevent the tenant from engaging in
any substantial gainful employment; or
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately; provided that the  amend-
ments  to section 26-408 of the city rent and rehabilitation law made by
section one of this act shall remain in full force and  effect  only  as
long  as  the  public  emergency requiring the regulation and control of
residential rents and evictions continues, as provided in subdivision  3
of section 1 of the local emergency housing rent control act.

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