§ 21. Conveyance of strips of abandoned canal lands and Onondaga salt
springs reservation land. a. The commissioner of general services is
authorized, in his discretion, to sell and convey at public or private
sale, upon such terms and conditions as he may deem proper, all the
right, title and interest of the state in and to certain strips of
abandoned canal lands or Onondaga salt springs reservation land, which
strips adjoin the old beds of the Erie canal and Oswego canal and
side-cut canals, which beds were heretofore conveyed by the people of
the state of New York and in which said strips of land there remains a
right, title or interest in the people of the state of New York. Any
such private sale, if made, shall be to the state's grantee or to the
successor to the title or interest of the beds so previously granted by

value of the said right, title or interest.

conditions as he may deem proper, all the right, title and interest of
the state in and to any parcel of land of the Onondaga salt springs
reservation to the person or persons having a deed of record of such
land, or their successors in interest, since the first day of January,
eighteen hundred ninety-nine, or to any person or persons who have been
