AN ACT to amend the public buildings law, in relation to  the  authority
  of the commissioner of general services to  lease public buildings

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

  Section 1. Subdivision 12 of section 3 of the public buildings law, as
amended by section 47 of part T of chapter 57 of the laws  of  2007,  is
amended to read as follows:
  12. Lease from time to time buildings, rooms or premises in the county
of  Albany,  and  elsewhere as required, for providing space for depart-
ments, commissions, boards and officers of the  state  government,  upon
such  terms  and  conditions as he or she deems most advantageous to the
state. Any such lease shall, however, be for a term  not  exceeding  ten
years,  except that, the commissioner of general services may enter into
leases for a term not exceeding fifteen years when, in the  judgment  of
such  commissioner,  such  longer  term  is in the best interests of the
state. Any such lease may provide for optional renewals on the  part  of
the state, for terms of ten years or less. Each such lease shall contain
a  clause  stating  that  the  contract of the state thereunder shall be
deemed executory only to the extent of  moneys  available  therefor  and
that no liability shall be incurred by the state beyond the money avail-
able for such purpose.  Notwithstanding the provisions of any other law,
except section sixteen hundred seventy-six of the public authorities law
relating  to  use  of  dormitory  authority  facilities by the aged, the
commissioner of general services shall have sole and exclusive authority
to lease space for state departments, agencies, commissions, boards  and
officers  within the county of Albany. Any buildings, rooms or premises,
now or hereafter held by the  commissioner  of  general  services  under
lease, may be sublet, in part or in whole, provided that in the judgment

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
