   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1. Subdivision 7 of section 31 of the private housing finance
 law, as amended by chapter 399 of the laws of 2010, is amended  to  read
 as follows:
   7.  Preference in admission to a project with an open waiting list, as
 determined by the commissioner or the supervising agency, shall be given
 by a mutual company or an urban rental company or by the New York  state
 housing  finance  agency  when  subleasing dwellings in projects of such
 companies pursuant to section forty-four-a of this chapter,  to  persons
 or surviving spouses of persons who are veterans as such term is defined
 pursuant to section eighty-five of the civil service law.  THE NUMBER OF
 PERSONS GIVEN PREFERENCE AS A VETERAN OR A SURVIVING SPOUSE OF A VETERAN
 SHALL  BE  PUBLISHED  ADJACENT  TO THE APPLICATION TO BE ON SUCH WAITING
 LIST. For projects with a closed list, as determined by the commissioner
 or the supervising agency, such preference shall be given upon the open-
 ing of the waiting list. Notwithstanding the foregoing, persons who  are
 residing in a limited-profit housing project shall be given first prior-
 ity  for  an internal transfer in the project in which they are residing
 in accordance with rules and regulations promulgated by the commissioner
 or the supervising agency.
   § 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after
 it shall have become a law. Effective immediately, the addition,  amend-
 ment and/or repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for the implemen-
 tation  of  this act on its effective date are authorized to be made and
 completed on or before such effective date.

                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
