SECTION 2655-A
Bylaws of the authority
Public Authorities (PBA) CHAPTER 43-A, ARTICLE 8, TITLE 28-B
§ 2655-a. Bylaws of the authority. 1. The board shall draft proposed
bylaws for the organization and procedure of the authority. Such bylaws
shall be consistent with the provisions of this title and all other
state and federal laws, and shall contain a provision that such bylaws
may only be amended after final adoption by a two-thirds vote of all the
voting members of the board. Upon the drafting of such proposed bylaws,
the board shall conduct a public hearing on such proposed bylaws and
solicit public comment on the same. After the public hearing and comment
has been conducted and solicited, the board shall adopt such proposed
bylaws, with any amendments made thereto in response to the public
hearing and comment, and shall thereafter file the adopted proposed
bylaws with the clerk of the county legislature.

2. Within thirty days of the filing of such adopted proposed bylaws
with the clerk of the county legislature, the county legislature may, by
a two-thirds vote of all the members of the county legislature, reject
the proposed bylaws so filed and return them to the authority for
possible amendment and redrafting. If the county legislature does not
reject the proposed bylaws by such two-thirds vote within thirty days of
the filing of the same, then such proposed bylaws so filed shall be
deemed adopted and in full force and effect. If the county legislature
rejects the proposed bylaws by such two-thirds vote, then the authority
shall amend the proposed bylaws as deemed appropriate. Such amended
bylaws shall be filed with the clerk of the county legislature,
whereupon the county legislature may again consider the amended bylaws
as in the same manner as if such bylaws had been originally filed
pursuant to subdivision one of this section.

3. In the absence of bylaws which are deemed adopted and in full force
and effect, the authority shall operate and be governed by the
provisions of this title and the most recently revised edition of
Roberts Rules of Order.
