AN ACT to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to water
  pollution control revolving fund agreements


  Section 1. Paragraph a of subdivision 3  of  section  17-1909  of  the
environmental conservation law, as amended by chapter 326 of the laws of
2015, is amended to read as follows:
  a.  The corporation is authorized to promulgate regulations, developed
in consultation with the commissioner and the director of  the  division
of  the  budget,  for  the  purpose of carrying out its responsibilities
under this section, including establishing criteria  and  standards  for
determining  the amount of financial assistance to a municipality for an
eligible project. To the extent financial assistance to  a  municipality
for an eligible project is provided as a loan from the proceeds of bonds
or  notes  of the corporation, the amount of an allocation applicable to
the portion of such eligible project financed with such loan  shall  be,
subject to such maximum financial limitations as may otherwise be neces-
sary and prescribed by the commissioner and the director of the division
of  the  budget,  thirty-three  and  one-third  percent of the principal
amount of such loan outstanding at any time for such  eligible  project,
to  the  extent reasonably practicable, and subject to such deviation as
may be necessary, in connection with the administration  and  investment
of  moneys  in  the  fund,  unless  allocations in differing amounts are
necessary to preclude a determination by the commissioner or the  corpo-
ration  pursuant  to paragraph e of subdivision eight of this section or
unless an allocation in a differing amount is required for an innovative
technology demonstration project; provided, however, that in the case of
any municipality which has, during the period commencing on June  first,
nineteen hundred ninety-two and ending on September thirtieth, two thou-
sand  [eighteen]  TWENTY-ONE, (i) submitted an application for financial
assistance in the form of such a loan for  an  eligible  project,  which
