   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

   Section  1.  Section  3  of  a chapter of the laws of 2021 relating to

 following:

 necessary  to  contain  the  spread of COVID-19 have brought about wide-

 PROPERTY  OWNERS.  Thousands of small businesses AND COMMERCIAL PROPERTY

 The pandemic has further interrupted court operations, the  availability
 of  counsel, the ability for parties to pay for counsel, and the ability
 to safely commute and enter a courtroom, settlement conference  and  the
 like.
   Ensuring  small  businesses AND COMMERCIAL PROPERTY OWNERS can survive
 in this unprecedented time is to the mutual benefit of all  New  Yorkers
 and will help the state address the pandemic, protect public health, and
