BILL NUMBER:S3768

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to
breast cancer research

PURPOSE: The bill authorizes funding of mapping incidence of breast
cancer from the Breast Cancer Research and Education Fund to qualified
research institutions, organizations, or agencies.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one amends Public Health Law § 2411 to authorize the Health
Research Science Board to solicit, receive and renew applications for
grants from the breast cancer research and education fund for purposes
of mapping breast cancer.

JUSTIFICATION: Funding grant proposals for the mapping of breast
cancer incidence from the Breast Cancer Research and Education Fund
would encourage innovative mapping research proposals. This bill will
provide an opportunity to advance our understanding of why there are
such geographic variations in breast cancer incidence.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: The law takes effect 60 days after enactment.
