  Committee on Higher Education

AN ACT to amend the education law, the limited liability company law and
  the  partnership  law, in relation to the practice of naturopathy; and
  to amend the social services law, in  relation  to  the  reporting  of
  child abuse

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative intent.  In order to protect the public health,
safety and welfare of the citizens who  desire  naturopathic  care,  the
legislature  finds it is necessary to regulate the practice of naturopa-
thy by providing licensure for qualified practitioners. It is the legis-
lature's intent that only practitioners who meet and maintain  standards
of  competence are recognized by the public as licensed naturopaths. The
legislature   recognizes   that,   unlike   other   currently   licensed
professions,  naturopathic  doctors  are formally educated in the use of
natural therapies, natural substances and pharmacological substances for
common health conditions and disease prevention.  Naturopaths serve  the
public as experts in drug/nutrient and drug/herb interactions.
  S  2.  The  education  law is amended by adding a new article 132-A to
read as follows:
                              ARTICLE 132-A
                               NATUROPATHS
SECTION 6575. INTRODUCTION.
        6576. DEFINITIONS.
        6577. DEFINITION OF THE PRACTICE OF NATUROPATHY.
        6578. TITLE AND DESIGNATION.
        6579. QUALIFICATIONS FOR LICENSURE.
        6580. STATE BOARD FOR NATUROPATHY.
        6581. EXEMPTIONS.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD02881-02-9
