AN ACT to amend the general municipal law, in  relation  to  prohibiting
  industrial  development  agencies  from incentivizing movements within
  the state

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

  Section  1. Subdivision 1 of section 862 of the general municipal law,
as amended by section 1 of part J of chapter 59 of the laws of 2013,  is
amended to read as follows:
  (1)  No funds of the agency shall be used in respect of any project if
the completion thereof would result in the removal of [an industrial  or
manufacturing]  ANY plant, FACILITY OR PERSONNEL of the project occupant
from one area of the state to another area of the  state  [or],  in  the
abandonment  of one or more plants or facilities of the project occupant
located within the state  OR  THE  UNEMPLOYMENT  OR  RELOCATION  OF  ANY
PERSONNEL  WHO  ARE EMPLOYED BY THE PROJECT OCCUPANT, provided, however,
that neither restriction shall apply if the agency  shall  determine  on
the  basis  of  the application before it that the project is reasonably
necessary to discourage the project occupant from  removing  such  other
plant  or  facility  to  a  location outside the state [or is reasonably
necessary to preserve the competitive position of the  project  occupant
in its respective industry].
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.



 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
