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

  Section 1. Subdivision 1 of section 1202-j of the tax law, as  amended
by chapter 586 of the laws of 2007, is amended to read as follows:
  (1)  Notwithstanding  any other provisions of law to the contrary, the
county of Otsego 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. For the purposes of this
section, the term "hotel" or "motel" shall mean and include any facility
consisting of rentable units  and  providing  lodging  on  an  overnight
basis.
  The  rates  of such tax shall not exceed [four] SIX percent of the per
diem rental rate for each room, provided however, that  such  tax  shall
not  be  applicable to a permanent resident of a hotel or motel. For the
purposes of this section the term  "permanent  resident"  shall  mean  a
person  occupying  any  room  or  rooms in a hotel or motel for at least
thirty consecutive days.
  § 2. This act shall take  effect  on  the  first  of  the  month  next
succeeding the date on which it shall have become a law.
