 AN ACT to amend the public authorities law, in  relation  to  the  board
   submitting  a  recommendation  regarding the central business district
   toll amounts to the legislature and recommending a privacy risk plan

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature finds and declares that
 legislative  accountability  is a core element in any democratic polity.
 The commuter tax legislation tried to sidestep  that  accountability  by
 passing  off  the  burden  of  establishing  the  commuter  tax rates to
 unelected bureaucrats and announcing such rates the week after the  2020
 election.   This legislation would restore the crucial element of legis-
 lative accountability by requiring that the legislature approve any rate
 established for the commuter tax.
   § 2. Subdivisions 2 and 3 of section 553-k of the  public  authorities
 law, as added by section 8 of subpart A of part ZZZ of chapter 59 of the
 laws of 2019, are amended to read as follows:
   2.  The  board shall make a recommendation regarding the central busi-
 ness district toll amounts to be established pursuant to article  forty-
 four-C  of  the vehicle and traffic law, which shall include a variable-
 pricing structure, no [sooner] LATER than  [November]  APRIL  fifteenth,
 two  thousand [twenty and no later than December thirty-first, two thou-
 sand twenty, or no later than thirty  days  before  a  central  business
 district  tolling  program is initiated, whichever is later] TWENTY-ONE.
 Such recommendation shall be submitted to the LEGISLATURE FOR  APPROVAL.
 THE  LEGISLATURE SHALL VOTE ON SUCH RECOMMENDATION BY JUNE THIRTY-FIRST,
 TWO THOUSAND TWENTY-ONE. THE AUTHORITY SHALL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO ESTAB-
 LISH CENTRAL BUSINESS TOLL DISTRICT AMOUNTS IF APPROVED BY THE  LEGISLA-
 TURE.  IF  APPROVED  BY  THE  LEGISLATURE,  SUCH RECOMMENDATION SHALL BE
 SUBMITTED TO THE board of the Triborough bridge and tunnel authority for
