     6    (a) The governing body of any city, town or village may, by local law,
     7  ordinance,  order,  rule  or  regulation,  authorize and regulate shared
     8  electric scooter systems within such city,  town  or  village.  No  such
     9  shared  systems  shall  operate within a city, town or village except as
    10  authorized by such local law, ordinance, order, rule or regulation.   No
