                    CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY
 
        proposing an amendment to article 1 of the constitution, in relation  to
          the abolition of slavery for persons convicted of crimes
 
     1    Section  1.  Resolved  (if  the  Senate concur), That article 1 of the
     2  constitution be amended by adding a new section 20 to read as follows:
     3    § 20. Abolition of slavery for persons convicted  of  crimes.  Neither
     4  slavery  nor  involuntary servitude shall exist in the state of New York
     5  for persons convicted of crimes.   No  incarcerated  individual  in  any
     6  state  or  local  prison,  penitentiary,  jail  or  reformatory shall be
     7  compelled or induced to provide labor against his or her will by  actual
     8  or  threatened  force, punishment, sexual assault, or by any other means
     9  reasonably likely to cause the incarcerated individual to  believe  that
    10  if  they  do  not  provide  such labor that they or another person would
    11  suffer physical, emotional or  mental  harm,  or  other  adverse  conse-
    12  quences.
    13    Any  incarcerated  individual  who voluntarily provides labor shall be
    14  entitled to  compensation  and  all  labor  protections  that  would  be
    15  provided  for work of a similar nature, but for such individual's condi-
    16  tion of incarceration. This section shall be self-executing.
    17    § 2. Resolved (if the Senate concur), That the foregoing  be  referred
    18  to  the  first  regular  legislative  session  convening  after the next
    19  succeeding general election of members of the assembly, and, in conform-
    20  ity with section 1 of article 19 of the constitution, be published for 3
    21  months previous to the time of such election.
