N.Y. Public Lands Law Section 2-A
Certain transfers of jurisdiction over state-owned lands and declarations of abandonment by the commissioner of general services


1.

When the commissioner of general services proposes to transfer jurisdiction over state lands pursuant to subdivision four of section three without the application or consent therein provided or when the commissioner proposes to declare real property as abandoned pursuant to subdivision two of section thirty-a, he shall give written notice of such intention to the agency having jurisdiction over such land, and in the case of a transfer of jurisdiction pursuant to subdivision four of section three, to the state agency to which jurisdiction is proposed to be transferred.

2.

Unless within thirty days from the date such notice is given, an agency entitled to notice pursuant to subdivision one hereof objects to such proposed action, the commissioner of general services may effect such transfer of jurisdiction or declaration of abandonment.

3.

If within thirty days of the giving of such notice, any state agency entitled to notice pursuant to subdivision one hereof objects to the action proposed by the commissioner by filing notice to such effect with the commissioner of general services, such proposed action shall be reviewed by the director of the budget, and the secretary of state. They shall affirm or reverse the proposed action by the commissioner and that decision shall be final. If they affirm the proposed action or fail to render a determination within six months of the date of the notice referred to in subdivision one, the commissioner may thereupon effect such transfer or declaration of abandonment.
