 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. The department of financial services, in coordination  with

 examine the increases in insurance premiums and the lack of availability
 of insurance coverage for affordable housing developments  in  New  York
 state. The department and the division shall:
   (a) analyze the factors that increase insurance costs for such housing
 developments and analyze the factors that may limit insurers from offer-
 ing coverage for affordable housing projects; and
   (b)  identify the potential impact, over the next ten years, of insur-
 ance premium increases and  unavailability  of  insurance  coverage  for
 affordable  housing  development  and  preservation,  including, but not
 limited to, the projected total reduction in affordable housing units by
 region, the inability to develop affordable housing in certain areas and
 any other topic or issue that  is  determined  to  be  relevant  to  the
 completion of the study by the department and the division.
   §  2. The department of financial services and the division of housing
 and community renewal shall jointly prepare  a  report  which  shall  be
 submitted  to  the  governor, the temporary president of the senate, the
 speaker of the assembly, the minority  leader  of  the  senate  and  the
 minority leader of the assembly, within eight months after the effective
 date  of this act, containing findings and recommendations for potential
 legislative and regulatory actions to address the costs and unavailabil-
 ity of insurance.
   § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
