  Section  1.  The  real  property  tax  law  is amended by adding a new
section 431 to read as follows:

PURPOSES  OF THIS SECTION, THE TERM "PUBLIC UTILITY" SHALL MEAN A PUBLIC
SERVICE CORPORATION, OTHER  ELECTRIC  SERVICE  PROVIDER,  FIBER  OPTICS,
TELEVISION  CABLE, OR ANY OTHER TELECOMMUNICATION COMPANY SUBJECT TO THE
JURISDICTION OF THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SERVICE.

OTHERWISE UTILIZING PROPERTY THAT A PUBLIC UTILITY ASSESSED AN AD  VALO-
REM  TAX, OR THAT SUCH UTILITY CONTRIBUTES TO A PAYMENT IN LIEU OF TAXES
AGREEMENT, WHETHER OR NOT SUCH CAMERA, INTERRELATED DEVICES OR  APPURTE-
NANCES  ARE  OWNED BY THE PUBLIC UTILITY, AND INSTALLED FOR THE PURPOSES
OF PROVIDING ANY POLICE FORCE OR PUBLIC SECURITY OFFICE ACCESS  TO  REAL
TIME  OR  RECORDED  INFORMATION,  SHALL  BE EXEMPT FROM REAL PROPERTY OR
OTHER AD VALOREM TAXES, LEVIES AND ASSESSMENTS OR PAYMENTS  IN  LIEU  OF
TAXES CONTRIBUTIONS.
  3.  THE  OFFICE OF REAL PROPERTY TAX SERVICES IS HEREBY AUTHORIZED AND
DIRECTED TO PROMULGATE RULES AND REGULATIONS NECESSARY FOR THE IMPLEMEN-
TATION OF THIS SECTION.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately and shall apply to assess-
ment rolls prepared on the basis of taxable status dates occurring on or
after such date; provided, however, that the office of real property tax
services shall promulgate rules and regulations necessary to  effectuate
this act prior to such effective date.
