SECTION 1268
Co-operation and assistance of other agencies
Public Authorities (PBA) CHAPTER 43-A, ARTICLE 5, TITLE 11
§ 1268. Co-operation and assistance of other agencies. 1. To avoid
duplication of effort and in the interests of economy, the authority may
make use of existing studies, surveys, plans, data and other materials
in the possession of any state agency or any municipality or political
subdivision of the state. Each such agency, municipality or subdivision
is hereby authorized to make the same available to the authority and
otherwise to assist it in the performance of its functions. At the
request of the authority, each such agency, municipality or subdivision
which is engaged in highway or other transportation activities or in
land use or development planning, or which is charged with the duty of
providing or regulating any transportation facility or any other public
facility, is further authorized to provide the authority with
information regarding its plans and programs affecting the
transportation district so that the authority may have available to it
current information with respect thereto. The officers and personnel of
such agencies, municipalities or subdivisions, and of any other
government or agency whatever, may serve at the request of the authority
upon such advisory committees as the authority shall determine to create
and such officers and personnel may serve upon such committees without
forfeiture of office or employment and with no loss or diminution in the
compensation, status, rights and privileges which they otherwise enjoy.

2. The authority shall, at the request of any state agency,
municipality or political subdivision of the state, engaged in highway
or other transportation activities or in land use or development
planning, provide said state agency, municipality or political
subdivision with all current and relevant information regarding its
plans or programs, so as to enable said agency, municipality or
subdivision to properly effectuate said activities or planning.

3. To the extent that the provisions of this title authorize the
authority to enter into any agreement or arrangement with, or undertake
any other activity requiring the participation of, the New York city
transit authority or any of its subsidiary corporations in furtherance
of their respective purposes and powers or the Triborough bridge and
tunnel authority in furtherance of its purposes and powers, such
entities are hereby authorized and empowered to enter into and perform
such contract or other arrangement and to undertake such activities.
