AN ACT to amend the transportation law,  in  relation  to  allowing  the
  commissioner  of transportation to immobilize or impound limousines in
  certain situations

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

  Section  1. Subdivision 2 of section 145 of the transportation law, as
added by chapter 635 of the laws of 1983, is amended to read as follows:

initiative  without  complaint  institute proceedings to revoke, cancel,
suspend or modify any certificate or  permit  issued  pursuant  to  this
chapter  after  a  hearing  at  which  the holder of such certificate or

thereof  upon  the  holder  of  such  certificate  or permit, unless the
