   thereof

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1. Section 8 of chapter 138 of the laws of 1998, amending the
 navigation law and the state finance law relating to  the  operation  of
 personal  watercraft and specialty prop-craft, as amended by chapter 169
 of the laws of 2021, is amended to read as follows:
   § 8. This act shall take effect immediately; provided that section two
 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
 and  after January 1, 2002 and before January 1, 2003 such section shall
 apply to all operators born  on  or  after  January  1,  1975;  provided
