        AN ACT to amend the labor law, in relation to requiring  the  establish-
          ment  of  an annual employment statistics index for unemployment rates
          of hamlets and villages of the state
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-

     4  lishing  an  annual employment statistics index which shows the rates of
     5  unemployment specifically for the hamlets and unincorporated villages of
     6  the state.
     7    a. Such an index shall be in addition to  any  statistics  or  indexes
     8  already compiled, recorded or published by the department.
     9    b.  The  commissioner  shall  prepare  and submit to the governor, the
    10  temporary president of the senate and the speaker of the assembly on  or

    12  required by this subdivision. Such report shall describe in  detail  the
    13  unemployment  rates  of  the  hamlets and unincorporated villages of the
    14  state. The report shall consider the comparison of  such  rates  to  the
    15  larger  municipalities  which  contain such hamlets or villages, and the
    16  need for improved use by unemployed  workers  within  such  hamlets  and
    17  villages of publicly funded programs for employment training and employ-
    18  ment-related services.
    19    c. The annual report and statistics index required by this subdivision
    20  shall be made available to the public.

    22  ing the date on which it shall have become a law.  Effective  immediate-
    23  ly,  the  addition,  amendment  and/or  repeal of any rule or regulation
    24  necessary for the implementation of this act on its effective  date  are
    25  authorized to be made and completed on or before such effective date.
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
