AN  ACT to amend the transportation law and the highway law, in relation
  to authorizing an airport mass transit project at  LaGuardia  airport;
  and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration there-


  Section 1. Legislative findings. LaGuardia airport is a pillar of  New
York  state's transportation network and a key driver of economic growth
throughout the state and the country. However, LaGuardia airport remains
the only major regional airport without a direct rail link.  The lack of

substantial  state  concern, with an impact well beyond a single munici-
