Executive (EXC) CHAPTER 18, ARTICLE 8
§ 183. Diversion of funds dedicated to the Niagara frontier
transportation authority to the general fund of the state is prohibited.
The director shall be prohibited from diverting revenues derived from
taxes and fees paid by the public into any fund created by law
including, but not limited to section ninety-nine-h of the state finance
law, as amended by chapter seven hundred forty-seven of the laws of two
thousand six, for the purpose of funding the Niagara frontier
transportation authority and any of its subsidiaries into the general
fund of the state or into any other fund maintained for the support of
another governmental purpose. No diversion of funds can occur contrary
to this section by an administrative act of the director or any other
person in the executive branch unless the governor declares a fiscal
emergency, and communicates such emergency to the temporary president of
the senate and speaker of the assembly, and a statute is enacted into
law authorizing a diversion that would otherwise be prohibited by this
section.
