AN ACT to amend the New York state urban development corporation act, in
  relation to creating the New York state innovative energy and environ-
  mental technology program

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  intent.  The  legislature  hereby  finds and
declares that the success of innovative energy and  environmental  tech-
nology-oriented  businesses  with  growth  potential is essential to the
continued economic health and security of New York state. It is  further
found  that  the development of new products to assist mature industries
undergoing dramatic changes or facing increasing international  competi-
tion  with  reducing energy costs and complying with environmental regu-
lations, can serve to retain, and even increase, employment.    However,
commercialization  of  these  products  is  restrained as numerous small
businesses are limited by lack of early stage financing.
  Therefore, the legislature seeks to provide early stage funds,  via  a
grants program, to stimulate the creation of a substantial number of new
businesses and jobs in the energy and environmental sector.
  S  2.  Section  1 of chapter 174 of the laws of 1968, constituting the
New York state urban development corporation act, is amended by adding a
new section 16-x to read as follows:
  S 16-X. NEW YORK STATE INNOVATIVE ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL  TECHNOLOGY
PROGRAM.  1.  DEFINITIONS.  AS USED IN THIS SECTION, THE FOLLOWING WORDS
AND TERMS SHALL HAVE THE FOLLOWING MEANINGS:
  (A) "INNOVATIVE ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES" SHALL MEAN ALL  METHODS  USED  TO
