 Introduced  by  Sen. KENNEDY -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
   printed to be committed to the Committee on Transportation
 
 AN ACT to amend the transportation law, in relation to  requiring  mili-
   tary courtesy centers in all airports
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Legislative intent. In recognition of the service  provided
 by  active  servicemembers and veterans, who often spent long hours away
 from their homes while working to defend our freedoms, it is the  intent
 of  this legislature to offer space in airports for members of the mili-
 tary to relax and rest.  Therefore,  every  commercial  airport  in  the
 state, regardless of authority or ownership, must offer space for active
 servicemembers  and  veterans to relax and rest while traveling, subject
 to the conditions set forth by the commissioner of transportation.
   § 2. The transportation law is amended by adding a new section 14-n to
 read as follows:
   § 14-N. AIRPORT MILITARY COURTESY CENTERS. 1. FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS
 SECTION, THE FOLLOWING TERMS SHALL HAVE THE FOLLOWING MEANINGS:
   (A) "MILITARY COURTESY CENTER" SHALL MEAN A CLUB, LOUNGE, OR  COURTESY
 ROOM  HOUSED WITHIN AN AIRPORT FOR PURPOSES OF PROVIDING A DISTINCT ROOM
 OR SUITE TO SERVE THE REST AND RECREATIONAL NEEDS  OF  TRAVELING  ACTIVE
 SERVICEMEMBERS AND VETERANS. MILITARY COURTESY CENTERS MAY BE MAINTAINED
 BY ANY AUTHORIZED MUNICIPALITY, BY AN AIRPORT OR COMMERCIAL AIR CARRIER,
 BY NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS, VETERANS' SERVICE AGENCIES OR ORGANIZATIONS,
 BY STATE EXPENSES FROM ANY APPROPRIATION FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF MILITARY
 COURTESY CENTERS, OR BY ANY COMBINATION THEREOF;
   (B)  "AIRPORT"  SHALL HAVE THE SAME MEANING AS SUCH TERM IS DEFINED IN
 SUBDIVISION FIVE OF SECTION TWO HUNDRED FORTY OF  THE  GENERAL  BUSINESS
 LAW,  INCLUDING  PRIVATELY-OWNED  AIRPORTS  AND  PUBLIC  USE AIRPORTS AS
 CONTEMPLATED UNDER SECTIONS FOURTEEN-H AND FOURTEEN-L OF THIS ARTICLE;
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                            LBD04195-01-9
