by chapter 722 of the laws of 1987, is amended to read as follows:
  (1)  Notwithstanding  any other provisions of law to the contrary, the
county of Oneida is hereby authorized and empowered to adopt  and  amend
local  laws  imposing in such county a tax, in addition to any other tax
authorized and imposed pursuant to this article, such as the legislature
has or would have the power and authority to impose upon persons occupy-
ing hotel or motel rooms in such county. The rates of such tax shall  be
[two]  FIVE  percent of the per diem rental rate for each room provided,
however, such tax shall not be applicable to  a  permanent  resident  of
such  hotel  or motel. For the purposes of this section the term "perma-
nent resident" shall mean a person occupying any  room  or  rooms  in  a
hotel  or motel for at least thirty consecutive days, also provided that
the county of Oneida may provide in its local law  imposing  such  hotel
and motel occupancy tax that such tax shall not be applicable to a hotel
or motel having twenty-five rooms or less.

chapter 355 of the laws of 1993, is amended to read as follows:
  (9) Revenues resulting from the imposition of tax authorized  by  this
section  shall  be  paid  into  the treasury of the county of Oneida and
shall be credited to and deposited in the Oneida county trust and agency
fund; the net collections therefrom shall thereafter be allocated by the
county legislature of Oneida and shall be used [solely for  the  purpose
of  promoting  tourism  and  conventions]  FOR  THE PROMOTION OF TOURISM
