AN ACT to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation  to  the
  removal of species from the endangered and threatened species list

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

  Section 1. Subdivision 1  of  section  11-0535  of  the  environmental
conservation  law,  as  amended  by  chapter 706 of the laws of 2005, is
amended to read as follows:
  1. For the purposes of this section, "endangered species"  shall  mean
those  species  of fish, shellfish, crustacea and wildlife designated by
the department, by regulation filed with  the  Secretary  of  State,  as
seriously  threatened  with  extinction, "threatened species" shall mean
those species of fish and wildlife  designated  by  the  department,  by
regulation filed with the Secretary of State, which are likely to become
endangered  species  within  the  foreseeable future throughout all or a
significant portion of their range, and  "species  of  special  concern"
shall  mean those species of fish and wildlife designated by the depart-
ment, by regulation filed with the Secretary of State, which  are  found
by the department to be at risk of becoming threatened in New York. Such
regulation  shall include, but not be limited to, endangered and threat-
ened species  as  so  designated  by  the  Secretary  of  the  Interior,
provided,  however,  that  such  regulation shall take effect sixty days
after it has been filed with  the  Secretary  of  State,  and  provided,
further,  that  [the  commissioner  may  exclude any such species as the
commissioner may determine after investigation to be  no  longer  endan-
gered  or  threatened  from the restrictions of this section] ANY ENDAN-
GERED OR THREATENED SPECIES AS SO DESIGNATED BY  THE  SECRETARY  OF  THE
INTERIOR  SHALL  BE SUBJECT TO THE RESTRICTIONS OF THIS SECTION, REGARD-
LESS OF THE REMOVAL OF SUCH DESIGNATION AS AN ENDANGERED  OR  THREATENED
SPECIES BY THE SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR, UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE COMMIS-
SIONER  DETERMINES,  AFTER INVESTIGATION, THAT SUCH SPECIES IS NO LONGER
ENDANGERED OR THREATENED.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
