 AN ACT to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation  to  the
   handling fee paid to any dealer or operator of a redemption center

   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Subdivision 6  of  section  27-1007  of  the  environmental
 conservation  law, as added by section 4 of part SS of chapter 59 of the
 laws of 2009, is amended to read as follows:
   6. In addition to the refund value of a beverage container  as  estab-
 lished  by  section 27-1005 of this title, a deposit initiator shall pay
 to any dealer or operator of a  redemption  center  a  handling  fee  of
 [three  and one-half] FIVE cents for each beverage container accepted by
 the deposit initiator from such  dealer  or  operator  of  a  redemption
 center.    Payment  of  the  handling  fee  shall be as compensation for
 collecting, sorting and  packaging  of  empty  beverage  containers  for
 transport  back to the deposit initiator or its designee. Payment of the
 handling fee may not be conditioned on the  purchase  of  any  goods  or
 services,  nor  may such payment be made out of the refund value account
 established pursuant to section 27-1012 of this title. A distributor who
 does not initiate deposits on a type of beverage container is considered
 a dealer only for the purpose of receiving a handling fee from a deposit
 initiator.
   § 2. Paragraphs a and c of subdivision 4 of  section  27-1012  of  the
 environmental  conservation  law,  as  added  by section 8 of part SS of
 chapter 59 of the laws of 2009, are amended to read as follows:
   a. Quarterly payments. An amount equal to [eighty] FORTY-SEVEN percent
 of the balance outstanding in the refund value account at the  close  of
 each  quarter  shall be paid to the commissioner of taxation and finance
 at the time the report provided for in subdivision three of this section
 is required to be filed. The commissioner of taxation  and  finance  may
