AN  ACT  to  amend  the criminal procedure law, in relation to anonymous
  juries and to repeal subdivision 1-a of section  270.15  of  such  law
  relating thereto


  Section 1. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 1 of  section  270.15  of  the
criminal  procedure  law, as amended by chapter 467 of the laws of 1985,
is amended to read as follows:
  (a) If no challenge to the panel is  made  as  prescribed  by  section
270.10,  or  if  such  challenge is made and disallowed, the court shall
direct that the names of not less than twelve members of  the  panel  be
drawn and called as prescribed by the judiciary law, EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE
REQUIRED  BY  SECTION  270.17  OF  THIS ARTICLE. Such persons shall take
their places in the jury box and shall be immediately  sworn  to  answer
truthfully  questions  asked  them  relative  to their qualifications to
serve as jurors in the action. In its discretion, the court may  require
prospective  jurors to complete a questionnaire concerning their ability
to serve as fair and impartial jurors,  including  but  not  limited  to
place  of  birth,  current  address,  education,  occupation, prior jury
service, knowledge of, relationship to, or contact with the  court,  any
party,  witness or attorney in the action and any other fact relevant to
his or her service on the jury. An official form for such  questionnaire
shall be developed by the chief administrator of the courts in consulta-
tion  with  the  administrative board of the courts. A copy of question-
naires completed by the members of the panel shall be given to the court
and each attorney prior to examination of prospective jurors.
