        AN ACT to amend the public lands law, in relation to the timeframe with-

          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
     1    Section 1. Section 19 of the public lands law, as amended  by  chapter
     2  385 of the laws of 1994, is amended to read as follows:
     3    § 19. Taxes  and assessments for local improvements on state lands.  A
     4  person, body or board authorized to assess lands for local  improvements
     5  or  purposes,  shall [serve on] submit to the comptroller of the state[,
     6  at least three weeks prior to the confirmation of the  same,  a  written
     7  notice  of  every]  an invoice of assessment on state lands, showing the
     8  purpose for which the assessment is made, the state lands  assessed  and
     9  the  amounts  for  which  they  are  assessed,  and referring to the law
    10  authorizing the assessment[, and  no  such  assessment  shall  be  legal
    11  unless  such  notice  is  duly  served].    No fee, interest, penalty or
    12  expense shall be added to or accrue on  any  [such]  assessment  against
    13  state lands, nor shall such lands be sold therefor; but such assessments
    14  shall,  if  confirmed and uncontested, be paid and discharged out of any
    15  moneys appropriated therefor. All sales of state lands for unpaid  taxes
    16  or  assessments  for  local improvements or purposes are void. All taxes
    17  and assessments legally made on state lands,  and  all  legal  rents  or
    18  charges thereon, shall be audited by the comptroller and paid out of the
    19  treasury.  On  or before January fifteenth the comptroller, in consulta-
    20  tion with the board of real property tax services and other agencies  as
    21  may  be appropriate, shall submit to the governor and the legislature an
    22  annual accounting of taxes and assessments paid pursuant to this section

     5  any other general, special or local law, this section shall prevail; and
     6  no other general, special or local law shall be deemed to repeal,  alter
     7  or  abridge  any  provision of this section, unless this section or this
     8  article or this chapter be expressly and specifically referred to there-
     9  in. This section shall extend, in its operation and  effect,  so  as  to
