AN  ACT to amend the economic development law, in relation to establish-
  ing the transitional green development program

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings and declaration. At a time when munic-
ipal  budgets  are  stretched to their limits with regard to traditional
expenditures, it is hereby found and declared that there  exists  within
the  state  the  need  to  augment the capabilities of municipalities to
identify and coordinate those qualities that give  them  unique  identi-
ties,  in  order to best exploit those qualities as they transition from
the formerly industrial-based economies to those  premised  on  environ-
mentally  sustainable  economic  growth. The legislature recognizes that
those qualities vary widely from municipality to municipality across the
state and include, but are not limited to, cultural, educational,  agri-
cultural,   environmental   and   infrastructural  characteristics  that
contribute to the municipal and regional identity. It is  further  found
that  it is the public policy of the state to provide special assistance
to those municipalities that seek to best identify and  integrate  those
capabilities to promote transitional growth and development.
  §  2.  The economic development law is amended by adding a new article
23 to read as follows:
                                ARTICLE 23
                  TRANSITIONAL GREEN DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
SECTION 450. DEFINITIONS.
        451. TRANSITIONAL GREEN DEVELOPMENT GRANT PROGRAM.
        452. DISTRIBUTION OF GRANTS.
        453. GREEN DEVELOPMENT COORDINATOR.
