AN ACT to amend the real property tax law, in relation  to  providing  a
  tax abatement related to the removal of leaded paint

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

  Section 1. The real property tax  law  is  amended  by  adding  a  new
section 467-l to read as follows:
  §  467-L.  ABATEMENT OF REAL PROPERTY TAXES FOR THE COST OF LEAD-BASED
PAINT REMEDIATION TO CERTAIN RESIDENTIAL RENTAL BUILDINGS.  1.  RESIDEN-
TIAL  RENTAL  BUILDINGS  WHERE LEAD-BASED PAINT REMEDIATION IS COMPLETED
SUBSEQUENT TO THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF A LOCAL LAW  OR  RESOLUTION  ADOPTED
PURSUANT  TO THIS SECTION SHALL RECEIVE A REAL PROPERTY TAX ABATEMENT TO
THE EXTENT PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION. AFTER A PUBLIC HEARING, THE GOVERN-
ING BOARD OF A CITY MAY ADOPT A LOCAL LAW TO GRANT THE ABATEMENT AUTHOR-
IZED PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION. A COPY OF SUCH LOCAL  LAW  OR  RESOLUTION
SHALL BE FILED WITH THE COMMISSIONER AND THE ASSESSOR OF SUCH CITY.
  2. AS USED IN THIS SECTION:
  A.  "LEAD-BASED  PAINT  REMEDIATION"  SHALL  MEAN  ANY SET OF MEASURES
DESIGNED TO PERMANENTLY ELIMINATE LEAD-BASED PAINT OR  LEAD-BASED  PAINT
HAZARDS.   REMEDIATION INCLUDES: (I) THE REMOVAL OF LEAD-BASED PAINT AND
DUST LEAD HAZARDS, THE PERMANENT ENCLOSURE  OR  ENCAPSULATION  OF  LEAD-
BASED  PAINT,  THE  REPLACEMENT  OF  COMPONENTS OR FIXTURES PAINTED WITH
LEAD-BASED PAINT, AND THE REMOVAL OR  PERMANENT  COVERING  OF  SOIL-LEAD
HAZARDS;  AND (II) ALL PREPARATION, CLEANUP, DISPOSAL AND POST ABATEMENT
CLEARANCE TESTING ASSOCIATED WITH SUCH MEASURES. REMEDIATION  SHALL  NOT
INCLUDE  RENOVATION,  REMODELING,  LANDSCAPING OR OTHER ACTIVITIES, WHEN
SUCH ACTIVITIES ARE NOT DESIGNED  TO  PERMANENTLY  ELIMINATE  LEAD-BASED
PAINT HAZARDS, BUT, INSTEAD, ARE DESIGNED TO REPAIR, RESTORE, OR REMODEL
A  GIVEN  STRUCTURE  OR DWELLING, EVEN THOUGH THESE ACTIVITIES MAY INCI-
DENTALLY RESULT IN  A  REDUCTION  OR  ELIMINATION  OF  LEAD-BASED  PAINT
