     1    Section  1.  The  real property law is amended by adding a new section
     2  222-a to read as follows:
     3    § 222-a. Property  leased  for  hydraulic  fracturing.  1.    For  the
     4  purposes of this section, "hydraulic fracturing" means the use of chemi-
     5  cals,  water  and other substances injected or pumped into a natural gas
     6  well to stimulate the extraction of natural gas.
     7    2. No lease of real property shall provide for or require the non-dis-
     8  closure of any term or condition thereof, when any portion of such  real
     9  property  is  to  be  used for hydraulic fracturing. Every lease of real
    10  property used for such purposes shall include all terms  and  conditions
    11  of  the use of the real property. Any lease provision which violates the
    12  provisions of this subdivision shall be void as contrary to public poli-
    13  cy.  Any lease provision that is void shall not affect in  any  way  any
    14  other lease provision; all other terms of the lease shall remain in full
    15  force and effect.
    16    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
