AN  ACT  directing the port authority of New York to study the alignment
  of the Outerbridge Crossing, in order to widen the bridge and increase
  the flow of traffic

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

  Section  1. 1. The port authority of New York shall conduct a study to
explore the alignment of the Outerbridge Crossing in  order  to  examine
the  feasibility  of physically widening such bridge, which would result
in an increase in the flow of traffic.
  2. Such study shall examine the alignment of the Outerbridge Crossing,
with attention to the surrounding private property in the area in  which
the  bridge  is located and to determine which of those properties would
need to be acquired by the port authority of New York in order to  effi-
ciently  expand the bridge to accomplish the goal of increasing the flow
of traffic.
  3. Prior to the expiration of its existing study into the  Outerbridge
Crossing,  the  port  authority  of New York shall issue a report of its
findings on the alignment of the Outerbridge Crossing to  the  governor,
the temporary president of the senate and the speaker of the assembly of
the  state  of  New York, as well as to the governor of the state of New
Jersey. Such report shall include, but not be limited to, the following:
  (a) actions that can be implemented by the port authority immediately,
a plan of action for such implementation, and the estimated cost of  the
implementation plan; and
  (b)  which, if any, surrounding property would need to be acquired and
the estimated cost of acquiring such property.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
