  Section  1. Section 8 of chapter 138 of the laws of 1998, amending the

of this act shall take effect January 1, 2000 and  shall  apply  to  all
operators born on or after January 1, 2000 and shall apply to all opera-
tors  born  on  or  after January 1, 1981, provided further on and after
January 1, 2001 and before January 1, 2002 such section shall  apply  to
all operators born on or after January 1, 1978; provided further that on
