     1    Section 1. Section 25 of the public service law is amended by adding a
     2  new subdivision 4-a to read as follows:
     3    4-a.  (a)  Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivision one or two of
     4  this section, any public utility company or corporation, and  the  offi-
     5  cers,  agents or employees thereof that knowingly makes a false material
     6  statement, representation or certification to the commission in any rate
     7  proceeding shall forfeit to the state of New York a sum  not  to  exceed
     8  two  hundred  fifty  thousand  dollars.  Each  false material statement,
     9  representation or certification shall constitute a separate and distinct
    10  offense for purposes of this section.
    11    (b) A public utility company or corporation, and the officers,  agents
    12  or  employees  thereof  that  discover  that a false material statement,
    13  representation or certification was previously made to the commission in
    14  relation to a rate proceeding shall disclose such false material  state-
    15  ment,  representation  or  certification  to the commission within three
    16  business days of  discovery.  Failure  to  make  such  disclosure  shall
    17  constitute  a knowing violation of this subdivision and shall cause such
    18  public utility company  or  corporation  and  the  officers,  agents  or
    19  employees  thereof to be liable for forfeiture pursuant to this subdivi-
    20  sion.
