 Introduced  by  Sen.  KAVANAGH -- (at request of the NYC H.P.D.) -- read
   twice and ordered printed, and when printed to  be  committed  to  the
   Committee on Housing, Construction and Community Development

   Section  1. Paragraph c of subdivision 1 of section 656 of the private
 housing finance law, as amended by chapter 598 of the laws of  2021,  is
 amended to read as follows:
   c.  No  bonds or notes of the corporation shall be issued if upon such
 issuance the aggregate principal amount of bonds and notes of the corpo-

 reserve fund requirement to exceed eighty-five million dollars; provided
 that, in determining such aggregate principal  amounts  there  shall  be
 deducted  (i)  all  sums then available for the payment of such bonds or
 notes either at maturity or through the operation  of  a  sinking  fund;
 (ii)  the  aggregate principal amount of outstanding bonds issued (a) to
 refund notes and (b)  to  refund  bonds,  theretofore  issued  and  then
 outstanding;  and  (iii)  the  aggregate principal amount of outstanding
 notes issued to renew notes theretofore issued and then outstanding. The
 provisions of the prior sentence notwithstanding, the corporation  shall
 not  issue  bonds  if such issuance shall cause the maximum reserve fund
 requirement to exceed thirty million dollars unless prior to such  issu-

 passed by the votes of a majority of all the  members  elected  to  each
 such house and, subsequent thereto, the governor shall evidence in writ-
 ing  the governor's agreement with such resolution to the chairperson of
 the corporation, which resolution shall be in full force and  effect  on
 the  date  of  issuance  of  the  bonds,  permitting the maximum capital
 reserve fund requirement to equal or exceed the amount  of  the  maximum
 capital reserve fund requirement which would be effective upon the issu-
