 AN  ACT  to  amend  the executive law, in relation to the termination of
   certain executive powers; to amend chapter 23  of  the  laws  of  2020

 Centers for Disease Control and there was the threat of widespread tran-

 York State would become one of the epicenters of the pandemic, how  long
 the pandemic would last, or the toll that it would take on the people of
 the  state. In the face of uncertain and unprecedented times, the legis-
 lature enacted chapter twenty-three in order to take action to combat an
 unknown and unprecedented problem, and in case the governor needed addi-
 tional powers to deal with the quickly evolving situation.     Much  has
 been learned about the COVID-19 virus in the last year.  The legislature
 finds  that  there has been progress in the fight against the virus with
