     8  least ten percent of the total number of parking spaces offered by  such
     9  facility.
    10    2.  Any  parking  garage,  open parking lot and other parking facility
    11  owned and/or operated by the state of New York, that  offers  more  than

     4  electrical code.
     5    4.  Pursuant  to  subdivisions  one  and  two of this section, parking

    13    5. The office of general services shall be responsible for the instal-

    18  the electrical capacity of the existing system by installing new  compo-
    19  nents  as necessary. If the office of general services is unable to make
    20  such technical upgrades to a facility, the state  may  contract  with  a

    32    7.  To  ensure that electric vehicles that require the use of charging
    33  stations are  the  only  vehicles  allowed  to  utilize  parking  spaces
    34  equipped  with  electric vehicle supply equipment, the office of general
    35  services, or other appropriate agency, is required to install signage to
    36  advise drivers of such parking restrictions.
    37    8. State, city and/or municipal policing  authorities  and/or  parking
    38  enforcement  are  hereby authorized to issue citations or take any other
    39  appropriate action in the event of a violation of subdivision  seven  of

    41  parking restrictions imposed by any parking facility in which the  elec-
    42  tric vehicle supply equipment is located.

    47  ized by this section, in any way, for the use of such  electric  vehicle
    48  supply equipment offered by a state owned and/or operated parking facil-
    49  ity.
    50    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
