   Section  1. Subdivision 29 of section 66 of the public service law, as
 added by section 2 of part A of a chapter of the laws of  2021  amending
 the public service law relating to storm hardening and system resiliency
 plans, as proposed in legislative bills numbers S. 4824-A and A. 3360-A,
 is amended to read as follows:
   29.  (a) Each electric corporation subject to section twenty-five-a of
 this chapter shall prepare and submit  a  climate  change  vulnerability
 study  to the commission within eighteen months of the effective date of
 this act. The commission shall provide such study to  the  governor  and
 the  legislature.  The climate change vulnerability study shall evaluate
 the electric corporation's infrastructure,  design  specifications,  and
 procedures  to  better  understand  the  corporation's  vulnerability to
 climate-driven risks, and shall include, but not be limited to,  adapta-
 tion  measures  to  address  vulnerabilities  and  any other information
 deemed necessary by the commission.
   (b) Within sixty days from submission of a climate change vulnerabili-
 ty study to the commission, each electric corporation subject to section
 twenty-five-a of this chapter shall[,  pursuant  to  regulation  by  the
 commission,]  submit  a  climate  resilience  plan to the commission for
 review and approval.  Each plan shall: (i) propose storm  hardening  and
 resiliency  measures  for the next ten years and twenty years, and shall
 explain the systematic approach the corporation will follow  to  achieve
 the  objectives  of  mitigating the impacts of climate change to utility
 infrastructure, reducing restoration costs and outage  times  associated
 with  extreme weather events, and enhancing reliability, as well as such
 other additional objectives the commission may require  consistent  with
 ensuring  increased  resiliency  of  utility  infrastructure and overall
 reliability during extreme weather events; (ii) detail  how  the  corpo-
