A license, [stamp] BOWHUNTING PRIVILEGE, MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGE, or permit to hunt may, upon the basis of a report, verified as herein- after provided, of the administering officer that he had reasonable grounds to believe such person to have been engaged in conduct in violation of any subdivision of section 11-1203 of this title and that said person had refused to submit to such test, be temporarily suspended without notice pending the determination upon any such hearing. Such report may be verified by having the report sworn to, or by affixing to such report a form notice that false statements made therein are punish- able as a class A misdemeanor pursuant to section 210.45 of the penal law and such form notice together with the signature of the deponent shall constitute a verification of the report. 5. No license, [stamp] BOWHUNTING PRIVILEGE, MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGE, or permit to hunt shall be revoked because of a refusal to submit to such chemical test if the hearing officer is satisfied that the person requested to submit to such chemical test had not been warned prior to such refusal to the effect that a refusal to submit to such chemical test may result in the revocation of such license, [stamp] BOWHUNTING PRIVILEGE, MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGE, or permit to hunt whether or not he is found guilty of the charge for which he has been arrested. S 30. Subdivision 3 of section 11-1209 if the environmental conserva- tion law, as added by chapter 726 of the laws of 1977, is amended to read as follows: 3. Notwithstanding any provision in section 11-1205 of this title, the department [of environmental conservation] may revoke, for a period not exceeding two years, any or all licenses, [stamps] BOWHUNTING PRIVI- LEGES, MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGES, or permits to hunt of any person who violates any subdivision of section 11-1203 of this title. Action by the department resulting in such revocation shall become effective only after a hearing held by the department upon notice to such person, at which proof of facts indicating the violation is established to the satisfaction of the commissioner, or of the hearing officer and concurred in by the commissioner. A person whose license to hunt has been revoked as provided in this subdivision is ineligible for such license during the period determined by the department as provided in this section. No such person shall, during such period, procure any license for which he is ineligible. No person shall without license hunt or trap during any period in which the privilege to do so has been denied him by the department as provided in this section. When the department has revoked a license, or has denied to any person the [priv- ilege of obtaining] ABILITY TO OBTAIN a license, it shall cause the fact of such revocation or denial, or both, as the case may be, and the terms and extent thereof, to be entered in the minutes of the department, and shall forthwith send a written notice of its action as so entered in the minutes to the person affected, at his last known address, either by registered or certified mail or by delivery personally by a represen- tative of the department. Within five days after service of such notice, such person shall deliver to the department the license or licenses revoked, together with any [buttons] BOWHUNTING PRIVILEGES, MUZZLE-LOAD- ING PRIVILEGES or tags issued in connection with them. If the license was one entitling the holder to the privilege of several licenses, and the revocation concerned some but not all of such privileges, any
license, [button] BOWHUNTING PRIVILEGE, MUZZLE-LOADING PRIVILEGE or tag so delivered shall be returned by the department to the person to whom it was issued, appropriately marked or stamped to show the extent to which it is revoked. S 31. Paragraph d of subdivision 1 of section 71-0919 of the environ- mental conservation law, as amended by chapter 640 of the laws of 1977, is amended to read as follows: d.

This act shall take effect February 1, 2014; provided, however, that the amendments to paragraph c of subdivision 1 of section 11-0907 of the environmental conservation law made by section seven of this act and the amendments to paragraph a of subdivision 3 of section 11-0907 of the environmental conservation law made by section nine of this act shall not affect the expiration of such paragraphs pursuant to section 13 of chapter 600 of the laws of 1993, as amended, when upon such date sections eight and ten of this act shall take effect, and provided further, that the amendments to section 9 of part AA of chapter 60 of the laws of 2011 made by section fifteen of this act shall take effect immediately. PART S Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds and determines: 1. In 2011 and 2012, three storms of enormous magnitude - Hurricane Irene, Tropical Storm Lee and Superstorm Sandy - each battered New York, causing billions of dollars of damage to roads, buildings and other infrastructure. The three storms collectively resulted in millions of residential, business and industrial customers of electric utilities losing electricity for extended periods of time. 2. Each of these storms caused, among other things, a disruption in the distribution and supply of motor fuels, and in the case of Super- storm Sandy, downstate motorists were unable to obtain routine supplies of fuel for several weeks. 3. In addition, temporary fuel distribution disruptions associated with the aftermath of a storm can result in emergency vehicles and responders unable to adequately address ongoing public safety and health emergencies, delay an appropriate response to infrastructure damages caused by a storm, and otherwise disrupt commerce in the state due to difficulty to obtain readily available motor fuels. 4. On November 15, 2012, in response to Superstorm Sandy, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the creation of the NYS Ready Commission and tasked it with finding ways to ensure critical systems and services are prepared for future natural disasters and other emergencies. As related to this act, the Commission was tasked with addressing vulnerabilities in the state's energy systems. 5. The NYS Ready Commission recommended, among other things, to require that retail gasoline outlets located in strategic locations have on-site back-up power capacity to ensure that such outlets can continue fuel sales operations during a long-term electric outage. The purpose of
this act is to ensure that the state is better situated in the future to address the temporary disruption of retail fuel supplies. S 2.
