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

  Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as
the "nuclear facility closing workers' protection act".
  §  1-a.  Legislative intent. The closure of Indian Point Nuclear Power
Plant will have a devastating effect on the local workforce that  relies
on this facility for employment. This act is intended to ensure that the
local  workforce  remains  employed  locally.  This  act  shall  not  be
construed to conflict, interfere, circumvent, or in any manner  abrogate
existing or future collective bargaining agreements or contracts between
any  of  the  involved  parties,  or parties that are not subject to the
project labor agreement.
  § 2. The public service law is amended by adding a new section  28  to
read as follows:
  §  28. NUCLEAR ELECTRIC PLANTS; CLOSURE OR SALE PLAN. 1. NOT LESS THAN
EIGHTEEN MONTHS PRIOR TO THE CLOSURE OR SALE OF A NUCLEAR ELECTRIC PLANT
LOCATED IN WESTCHESTER COUNTY, THE ELECTRIC CORPORATION OWNING,  OPERAT-
ING OR MANAGING SUCH PLANT SHALL SUBMIT TO THE DEPARTMENT A PLAN DETAIL-
ING  THE  PROCESS FOR THE CLOSURE OR SALE OF THE NUCLEAR ELECTRIC PLANT.
SUCH PLAN SHALL INCLUDE (A) DETAILS AND SPECIFICS ON THE ELECTRIC CORPO-
RATION'S PLAN TO COMPLY WITH ARTICLE TWENTY-FIVE-A OF THE LABOR  LAW  AS
THEY  APPLY  TO  NUCLEAR  ELECTRIC PLANTS, AND (B) A WORKFORCE RETENTION

CLOSURE  AND  DECOMMISSIONING  PERIOD. THE WORKFORCE RETENTION COMPONENT
SHALL INCLUDE  PROVISIONS  THAT  ANY  CONSTRUCTION  WORK  WHICH  MAY  BE
