AN ACT to establish a blue ribbon commission on fair competition in  the
  outdoor  recreation  industry;  and  providing  for the repeal of such
  provisions upon the expiration thereof

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

  Section 1. a. The legislature hereby declares that fair competition in
the  outdoor  recreation  industry  is  important and desirable and that
issues surrounding the public ownership of outdoor recreational  facili-
ties, including but not limited to, golf, ski and camping facilities and
the  impact  of  such facilities on privately owned outdoor recreational
facilities should be examined. As such, it is  determined  that  a  blue
ribbon commission on competitive issues relating to the public ownership
of  outdoor  recreational  facilities  shall  be  established to examine
whether such facilities enjoy unfair  competitive  advantages  and  make
recommendations regarding methods to address any such unfair competitive
advantages. Such commission shall submit a report and recommendations to
the governor and the legislature upon completion of such examination.
  b.  A blue ribbon commission on fair competition in the outdoor recre-
ation industry is hereby  established  to  examine,  evaluate  and  make
recommendations  regarding  methods  to  promote fair competition in the
outdoor recreation industry. For purposes of this  act  "outdoor  recre-
ation  industry" shall include, but not be limited to, golf, camping and
ski facilities. The subject areas to be examined by the commission shall
include, but not be limited to, the following:
  (1) a comparison of the following between public and  privately  owned
outdoor recreational facilities:
  (a) tax treatment;
  (b) equipment cost differences;
  (c) advertising and promotion costs;
  (d) personnel and employee benefit costs;
  (e) interest and borrowing costs;
