BILL NUMBER:S6323

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize certain health care professionals
licensed to practice in other jurisdictions to practice in this state
in connection with an event sanctioned by the World Triathlon
Corporation; and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon
expiration thereof

PURPOSE:

This legislation allows health care professionals to perform services
at the Ironman triathlon to be held on July 27, 2014 in Lake Placid,
New York.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1- allows any person who is licensed to practice as a
physician, physician's assistant, massage therapist, physical
therapist, chiropractor, dentist, optometrist, nurse, nurse
practitioner or podiatrist in another state or territory, who is in
good standing with such state or territory, and who has been appointed
by World Triathlon Corporation to provide professional services to
competitors at this Ironman event.

Section 2- provides the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

The triathlon in Lake Placid is a one day 2.4-mile swim and 112-mile
bike ride which concludes with a 26.2-mile marathon. As this event is
physically taxing on the athlete, the health and safety of the
participants in the days before the event and especially during and
after the event are crucial. This legislation would allow licensed
health care professionals from other states who volunteer and are
sanctioned by World Triathlon Corporation to perform services for the
athletes.

Especially important at Ironman events is the massage tent that is
available to the athletes following the race where muscle cramps and
minor aches and pains can be attended to. Without this immediate
attention, many of these competitors would require further intensive
medical intervention. The average time an athlete spends in this area
is approximately seven minutes, which is not a formal massage
treatment by any means. To service the 1,500 athletes, licensed
volunteers from other states are necessary.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

Legislation of this type has been passed by the Legislature in the
past for the Olympic Games in Lake Placid in 1980 and the Goodwill
Games in New York City in 1997 as well as for the 2001, 2002, 2003,
2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 Ironman
USA triathlons in Lake Placid.
