N.Y. Public Authorities Law Section 2655-A
Bylaws of the authority


1.

The board shall draft proposed bylaws for the organization and procedure of the authority. Such bylaws shall be consistent with the provisions of this title and all other state and federal laws, and shall contain a provision that such bylaws may only be amended after final adoption by a two-thirds vote of all the voting members of the board. Upon the drafting of such proposed bylaws, the board shall conduct a public hearing on such proposed bylaws and solicit public comment on the same. After the public hearing and comment has been conducted and solicited, the board shall adopt such proposed bylaws, with any amendments made thereto in response to the public hearing and comment, and shall thereafter file the adopted proposed bylaws with the clerk of the county legislature.

2.

Within thirty days of the filing of such adopted proposed bylaws with the clerk of the county legislature, the county legislature may, by a two-thirds vote of all the members of the county legislature, reject the proposed bylaws so filed and return them to the authority for possible amendment and redrafting. If the county legislature does not reject the proposed bylaws by such two-thirds vote within thirty days of the filing of the same, then such proposed bylaws so filed shall be deemed adopted and in full force and effect. If the county legislature rejects the proposed bylaws by such two-thirds vote, then the authority shall amend the proposed bylaws as deemed appropriate. Such amended bylaws shall be filed with the clerk of the county legislature, whereupon the county legislature may again consider the amended bylaws as in the same manner as if such bylaws had been originally filed pursuant to subdivision one of this section.

3.

In the absence of bylaws which are deemed adopted and in full force and effect, the authority shall operate and be governed by the provisions of this title and the most recently revised edition of Roberts Rules of Order.
