Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
      Section 1.  Section 28-405.3.1 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 33 for the year 2007, is amended to read as follows:
      §28-405.3.1  Class A license.  All applicants for a class A basic hoisting machine operator license shall have had at least three years experience within the five years prior to application under the direct and continuing supervision of a licensed hoisting machine operator and shall successfully complete written and practical examinations administered by a city agency.  Such examination shall specifically address the unique challenges of safely operating such equipment within the city's environment and the applicability of any federal or local laws and rules or industry standard recognized and enforced by the city.
      §2.  Section 28-405.3.2 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 33 for the year 2007, is amended to read as follows:

§3. This local law shall take effect sixty days after enactment, provided, however, that the commissioner of buildings shall take all actions necessary to implement this local law, including the promulgation of rules and the establishment of the required examinations, on or before such date.
