   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Section 14 of the transportation law is amended by adding a
 new subdivision 37 to read as follows:
   37.  TO  CONDUCT  A  FOLLOW UP INSPECTION OF ANY FREIGHT RAIL TRAIN OR
 FREIGHT RAIL TRACK INSPECTION WITHIN THE STATE CONDUCTED BY THE  FEDERAL

 DEFICIENCIES OR VIOLATIONS WERE REPORTED BY  REGULATORS  IN  NEIGHBORING
 STATES ON ROUTES THAT WILL SUBSEQUENTLY TRAVEL THROUGH NEW YORK.
   §  2.  This  act shall take effect on the thirtieth day after it shall
 have become a law; provided, however, that  this  act  shall  be  deemed
 repealed if any federal agency determines in writing that this act would
 render New York state ineligible for the receipt of federal funds or any
 court  of  competent jurisdiction finally determines that this act would
 render New York state out of compliance with federal law or  regulation;
 and  provided  that  the commissioner of transportation shall notify the
 legislative bill drafting commission  upon  any  such  determination  in
 order  that the commission may maintain an accurate and timely effective
 data base of the official text of the laws of the state of New  York  in
 furtherance of effectuating the provisions of section 44 of the legisla-
 tive  law  and  section 70-b of the public officers law. Effective imme-
 diately, the addition, amendment and/or repeal of any rule or regulation
 necessary for the implementation of this act on its effective  date  are
 authorized to be made and completed on or before such effective date.
