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

  Section  1.  Section  207  of  the education law is amended to read as
follows:
  § 207. Legislative power.  1. Subject and in conformity to the consti-
tution and laws of the state, the  regents  shall  exercise  legislative
functions  concerning the educational system of the state, determine its
educational policies, and, except, as to the judicial functions  of  the
commissioner  of education, establish rules for carrying into effect the
laws and policies of the state, relating to  education,  and  the  func-
tions, powers, duties and trusts conferred or charged upon the universi-
ty  and the education department.  But no enactment of the regents shall
modify in any degree the freedom of the governing body of  any  seminary
for  the  training of priests or clergymen to determine and regulate the
entire course of religious, doctrinal or theological instruction  to  be
given  in  such institution.  No rule by which more than a majority vote
shall be required for any specified  action  by  the  regents  shall  be
amended,  suspended or repealed by a smaller vote than that required for
action thereunder.  Rules or regulations, or amendments or repeals ther-
eof, adopted or prescribed by the commissioner of education as  provided
by  law shall not be effective unless and until approved by the regents,
except where authority is conferred by the regents upon the commissioner
of education to adopt, prescribe, amend or repeal such  rules  or  regu-
lations.
  2.  A. AS USED IN THIS SUBDIVISION, THE FOLLOWING TERMS SHALL HAVE THE
FOLLOWING MEANINGS:
