AN ACT in relation to authorizing the state university trustees to lease
  certain lands of Stony Brook University to Ronald  McDonald  House  of
  Long Island, Inc.

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature finds that the  state
university of New York at Stony Brook ("University") is in need of addi-
tional  facilities  to  fulfill  its  legislatively  mandated mission of
research, education, and provision of health  care  services.    Specif-
ically,  Ronald  McDonald  House  of  Long  Island,  Inc. has offered to
construct, maintain and operate a "Ronald McDonald House" to support the
operations of Stony Brook  University  Hospital's  Children's  Hospital.
Furthermore,  such activity will promote the provision of quality pedia-
tric health care services to the surrounding community.
  The legislature further finds that granting the trustees of the  State
University  of  New  York the authority and power to lease and otherwise
contract to make available grounds and facilities of the campus  of  the
State  University  of  New York at Stony Brook will ensure such activity
will promote the provision of quality pediatric health care services  to
the surrounding community.
  §  2. Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, the state univer-
sity trustees are hereby authorized and empowered,  without  any  public
bidding,  to  lease  and  otherwise contract to make available to Ronald
McDonald House of Long Island, Inc. (the "Ground Lessee") a  portion  of
the  lands  of the University not to exceed 2 acres to be located south-
east of Stony Brook University Hospital for the purpose of constructing,
maintaining and  operating  a  Ronald  McDonald  House  to  support  the
provision  of  quality pediatric health care to the surrounding communi-
ties and the missions of the State University of New York.   Such  lease
or contract shall be for a period not exceeding 50 years without any fee
simple  conveyance and otherwise upon terms and conditions determined by
such trustees, subject to the approval of the director of  the  division
