BILL NUMBER:S990A

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the social services law, in relation to restricting placement
of level two or level three sex offenders in any temporary emergency
housing or homeless shelters used to house families with children

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Prohibits placing of level 2 and 3 sex offenders in any temporary
emergency housing or homeless shelters used to house families with
children.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Adds a new section 131-y to the social services law prohibiting
placement of level 2 and level 3 sex offenders in temporary housing
or homeless shelters used to house families with children.

JUSTIFICATION:
This legislation would require municipalities to place homeless level
2 and level 3 sex offenders in adult-only shelters or emergency
housing where they will not be in close contact with children. Sex
offenders are already barred from living in public housing; this
measure extends the same protection to homeless families. This
amendment changes the reference from the Office of Children and
Family Services to the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2008: S.7742 - Referred to Social Services, Children & Families
2009-10: S.1867 - Referred to Social Services, Children & Families

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
No costs to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect 90 days after it shall have become law.
