NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A4662
 
SPONSOR: Burdick
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to competency exams offered to qualified home care services workers residing outside this state   PURPOSE: The purpose of this legislation is to amend the public health law by requiring the department to maintain a schedule of when they will offer competency exams to qualified home care service workers residing outside this state in order to fill any shortage of home care services working in this state.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends Section 3613 of the public health law by adding subdi- vision 7-a which would require the department to maintain a schedule of when the department shall offer competency exams to qualified home care services workers residing outside this state. It also requires that such schedule shall be made available on the department's website and readily accessible by the public. Section 2 sets effective date   JUSTIFICATION: New York is currently facing a deficit in home health care workers and companies are currently outsourcing workers from neighboring states. Making a schedule of when the department is offering competency exams makes it easier for out of state workers to fill those positions and in return aiding in the shortage of home care workers.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the sixtieth day after it shall have become a law.
