AN ACT to amend the public authorities law, in relation to the Verrazza-
  no-Narrows bridge

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

  Section 1. Section 553-f of the public authorities law, as amended  by
chapter 2 of the laws of 1993, is amended to read as follows:
  §  553-f.  Tokens.  Notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of law,
but subject to agreements with noteholders and bondholders, the authori-
ty shall offer for sale tokens with respect to residents of  the  county
of  Richmond  and may, except as otherwise provided herein, regulate the
use thereof. Tokens for residents of the county of Richmond shall  enti-
tle  the purchaser to crossings over the [Verrazano-Narrows] VERRAZZANO-
NARROWS bridge at a reduced cost of eighty per  centum  of  the  regular
crossing  fare imposed on nonresidents of the county of Richmond. In the
event the authority shall impose a surcharge in addition to the  regular
toll  for  crossings  over  the  [Verrazano-Narrows]  VERRAZZANO-NARROWS
bridge, such surcharge shall not be deemed a part of the regular  cross-
ing  fare  for purposes of this section, and the tokens offered for sale
to the residents of the county of Richmond as herein provided shall also
entitle the purchaser to a permanent exemption from the payment  of  any
such  surcharge  in  an amount equal to the amount of any such surcharge
imposed during calendar year nineteen hundred ninety-three.  Application
for such tokens or other payment devices shall be made in such manner as
prescribed  by  the  authority and shall contain such information as the
authority may reasonably require.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

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