 AN  ACT  to  amend  the  rural  electric cooperative law, in relation to
   allowing meetings of members to be held partially or solely  by  means
   of electronic communication

   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Subdivisions (c), (d) and (e) of section 17  of  the  rural
 electric cooperative law are amended to read as follows:
   (c)  Except  as  otherwise provided in this chapter written or printed
 notice stating the time and place of each meeting of the members and, in
 the case of a special meeting, the purpose or  purposes  for  which  the
 meeting  is  called, shall be given to each member, either personally or
 by mail, not less than ten days nor more than  [twenty-five]  FORTY-FIVE
 days  before  the  date  of the meeting. If mailed, such notice shall be
 deemed to be given when deposited in the United States mail with postage
 prepaid addressed to the member at his address  as  it  appears  on  the
 records of the cooperative.
   (d)  Unless the by-laws prescribe the presence of a greater percentage
 or number of the members for a quorum, a quorum for the  transaction  of
 business at all meetings of the members of a cooperative having not more
 than  one  thousand  members,  shall  be five per centum of all members,
 present in person OR ELECTRONICALLY, and of a  cooperative  having  more
 than  one thousand members, shall be fifty members, present in person OR
 ELECTRONICALLY.  THIS PROVISION SHALL NOT  PREVENT  A  COOPERATIVE  FROM
 ADOPTING  A  BY-LAW THAT ONLY ALLOWS AN IN-PERSON QUORUM FOR MEETINGS OF
 MEMBERS. If less than a quorum is present at any meeting, a majority  of
 those  present in person may adjourn the meeting from time to time with-
 out further notice.

  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
