BILL NUMBER:S1994

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the executive law; in relation to making the director of the
state office for the aging a member of the emergency services council

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL:
Adds the director of the state
office for the aging to the emergency services council.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Amends section 580 of the executive law by
adding the director of the state office for the aging to the
emergency services council.

JUSTIFICATION:
The demographics of the state and the nation are
changing as the baby boomers near retirement. Older adults are
primarily healthy and active but as one ages and chronic diseases
occur, becoming frail is a reality for some older adults. Natural
disasters, man made disasters, and other emergency situations require
that the special needs of frail older adults be known and considered.
Therefore, it is important to add to the list of council members the
director of the state office for the aging to ensure that the special
needs of older New Yorkers are considered and planned for and
expertise in the area of older adults can be shared.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.3730 - 2007-08 - Referred to Finance, Reported and Committed
to Rules
S.2013 - 2009-10 - Aging, Finance, Third Reading, Passed Assembly
(A.4491)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
