BILL NUMBER:S5847

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation to
the statewide central register of child abuse and maltreatment

PURPOSE GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To amend Section 422 5(a)(v) of the
Social Services law to replace reference to Penal Law Section 240.55
with reference to Section 240.50 of the Penal Law.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends Section 422 5(a)(v) of the Social Services law to
replace reference to Penal Law Section 240.55 with reference to Section
240.50 of the Penal Law.

Section 2 contains the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: This statement is intended to reference falsely report-
ing child abuse, however, the current reference to section 240.55 of the
Penal Law refers to making a bomb threat. This legislation corrects this
error and references the appropriate section of Penal Law.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
