   printed to be committed to the Committee on Investigations and Govern-

 AN ACT to amend the tax law, in relation to providing an exemption  from
   the payments of the petroleum business tax on the operation of commer-
   cial tugboats, barges and other commercial towboats

   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Legislative  findings  and  declarations.  The  legislature
 hereby finds that commercial tugboat, barge and other commercial towboat
 operators  are  subject to the petroleum business tax when their vessels
 are used in commercial tugboat, barge and other commercial towboat oper-
 ations. The legislature further  finds  that  such  commercial  tugboat,
 barge  and  other  commercial towboat operators endure an administrative
 and unexpected financial burden as a result of  such  law  that  is  not
 warranted  by  the  minimal  amounts to be collected from the commercial
 tugboat, barge and other commercial towboat operators under such law, as
 determined by the state of New York.
   The legislature, therefore, declares that it is in the  best  interest
 of  the  commercial tugboat, barge and other commercial towboat industry
 of the state of New York to exempt the  commercial  tugboat,  barge  and
 other commercial towboat industry from this tax.
   §  2.  Paragraph 2 of subdivision (b) of section 301-a of the tax law,
 as added by section 154 of part A of chapter 389 of the laws of 1997, is
 amended to read as follows:
   (2) Motor fuel brought into this state in  the  fuel  tank  connecting
 with  the  engine  of  a  vessel propelled by the use of such motor fuel
 shall be deemed to constitute a  taxable  use  of  motor  fuel  for  the
 purposes  of this subdivision to the extent that the fuel is consumed in
 the operation of the vessel in this state. Provided, however, that  this
 paragraph  shall  not  apply  to  (i)  a recreational motor boat or (ii)
 subsequent to  August  thirty-first,  nineteen  hundred  ninety-four,  a
 commercial  fishing  vessel  (as  defined  in subdivision (j) of section
 three hundred of this article) if the motor fuel imported  and  consumed
