  Section 1. Paragraph 1 of subdivision (b) of section 306 of the  busi-
ness  corporation law, as amended by chapter 419 of the laws of 1990, is
amended to read as follows:
  (1) Service of process on the secretary of state as agent of a  domes-
tic or authorized foreign corporation shall be made by personally deliv-
ering  to  and  leaving with the secretary of state or a deputy, or with
any person authorized by the secretary of state to receive such service,
at the office of the department of state in EITHER the city of Albany OR
NEW YORK, duplicate copies of such process together with  the  statutory
fee,  which  fee  shall be a taxable disbursement. Service of process on

director  named  in  its  certificate of incorporation at the director's
address stated therein or, in the case of an authorized  foreign  corpo-
ration,  to  such  corporation  at the address of its office within this
state on file in the department.
