A04948 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A4948
 
SPONSOR: Bronson
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the elder law, in relation to requiring the state office for the aging to include reports on older adults who are primary care- givers or guardians of minors and on substance use disorders among older adults in such office's annual reports to the governor and legislature   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To ensure that two additional areas of importance to the State's older adult population are being considered by the Office for the Aging.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill adds two reporting provisions to the requirements for the Office for the Aging annual report: (1) The number of older adults who are primary caregivers or guardians for minors, including analyses of circumstances that lead to this arrangement, services available for older adults in these circumstances, and recommendations; and (2) an analysis of substance use disorders among older adults including preva- lence, available programs and services, and recommendations.   JUSTIFICATION: The Office for the Aging's annual report covers many areas of interest to older adults and those who create legislation to help them. The two additional reporting areas added by this legislation are gaining promi- nence, but more attention is needed to ensure that adequate and appro- priate programs and services can be made available.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2017-18: A.6736 - Passed Assembly   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
