BILL NUMBER:S4325A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 192 of the laws of 2011,
relating to authorizing certain health care professionals licensed to
practice in other jurisdictions to practice in this state in
connection with an event sanctioned by New York Road Runners, in
relation to extending the provisions thereof

PURPOSE: To authorize certain health care professionals to practice
in this state with an event sanctioned by New York Road Runners.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 - Authorizes that any person who is licensed to practice as
a physician, physician's assistant, massage therapist, physical
therapist, chiropractor, dentist, optometrist, nurse, nurse
practitioner, certified athletic trainer, or podiatrist in another
state or territory, who is in good standing in such state or territory
and who has been appointed by the New York Road Runners to provide
professional services at an event in this state sanctioned by the New
York Road Runners, may provide such professional services to athletes
and team personnel registered to train at a location in this state or
registered to compete in an event conducted under the sanction of the
New York Road Runners in the state without first being licensed
pursuant to the provisions of title 8 of the education law. Such
services may be provided only four days before the following events,
during the following events, and one day after the following events:

Brooklyn Half 5-18-13
Staten Island Half 10-13-13
Queens 10K 7-21-13

Section 2 -- Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: There are not enough health care professionals
available, within the state of New York, to meet the needs of
participants in events sanctioned by the New York Road Runners.
Accordingly, it would be advantageous to allow licensed health care
professionals, who are in good standing with their respective state or
territory, to provide such services here in New York.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012: Similar legislation (S.6153) was chaptered
(Chap. 33 Laws of 2012)
2011: Similar legislation (S.3253B) was chaptered (Chap. 192 Laws of
2011)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately and shall expire and be deemed repealed
