A01370 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A1370C
 
SPONSOR: Abinanti
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the mental hygiene law, in relation to duties of providers of service to people with developmental disabilities   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:: The purpose of this bill is to require facilities licensed, certified, or operated by the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities to post notices to call 911 in an emergency.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:: Section 1 of the bill amends § 16.13 of the Mental Hygiene Law by adding a new subdivision (e) to require facilities licensed, certified, or operated by the office for people with developmental disabilities (OPWDD) post signs. Such signs shall be posted and visible where employ- ee notices are posted, be not less than eight and one-half inches by eleven inches and shall read: In case of an emergency, dial 911". Section 2 is the effective date.   DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORIGINAL AND AMENDED VERSIONS: The amendments add a new subdivision to the mental hygiene law section 16.13 rather than section 31.11; clarify the application of the bill and where notices are to be posted and set forth the size of and language to be included in the signs.   JUSTIFICATION:: Current law requires mandatory reporters to report signs of abuse or neglect to the Justice Center. This legislation helps to ensure that individuals are aware of their responsibility, in an emergency, to contact 911. This legislation supports the protection of our most vulnerable popu- lation.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:: 2017-18: A2846 passed assembly; same as S1400 (Avella) referred to mental health and developmental disabilities; 2015/2016: A7533 passes assembly; same as S7188 (Avella) referred to mental health; 2013/2014: A7907 (Weisenberg) passed assembly; 56929 (Golden) referred to mental health   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS:: Undetermined   EFFECTIVE DATE:: This act shall take effect immediately.
