 Introduced  by Sen. KAMINSKY -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
   printed to be committed to the Committee on Transportation
 AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to  authorizing
   a  residential parking system in certain parts of the hamlet of Ocean-
   side in the Town of Hempstead
   Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature finds that
 there  is  a shortage of parking for residents of a section of Oceanside
 in  the  town  of  Hempstead  that  has  resulted  in  traffic  hazards,
 congestion, and air pollution. In addition, such lack of parking poses a
 hazard  to residents and other pedestrians in this area. The Mount Sinai
 South Nassau Hospital has expanded greatly in size in  recent  years  to
 become  one  of the largest hospitals in the region, and yet its parking
 facility has not kept pace with the demand for parking at that  institu-
 tion.  Consequently,  many  of  the  staff  and visitors to the hospital
 instead park on the streets  of  the  nearby  residential  community  of
 Oceanside.  In  addition  to  the greater traffic volume, congestion and
 associated problems, the resulting lack of  parking  for  residents  has
 resulted  in  traffic  hazards,  air  pollution,  and  increased litter,
 including medical waste. The legislature finds that a residential  park-
 ing  system  in  this  section of Oceanside will reduce such hazards and
 will  lower  pollution  levels  as  well.  The  legislature,  therefore,
 declares the necessity of this act to authorize the town of Hempstead to
 adopt  a  residential  parking  permit  system  in  accordance  with the
 provisions of this act.
   § 2. Subdivision 2 of section 1662-e of the vehicle and  traffic  law,
 as  added  by  chapter  267  of  the laws of 2013, is amended to read as
   2. Such residential parking permit system may only be established
