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

law, as amended by chapter 307 of the laws of 1975, is amended  to  read

  8.  Upon  such  a  hearing, only non-hearsay evidence is admissible to

felony;  except  that reports of experts and technicians in professional
and scientific fields and sworn statements,  FORMS  OR  RECORDS  of  the
kinds  specified in subdivisions two [and], three AND THREE-A of section
190.30 are admissible to the same extent as in a grand jury  proceeding,
unless  the  court  determines,  upon application of the defendant, that
such hearsay evidence is, under  the  particular  circumstances  of  the
case,  not  sufficiently reliable, in which case the court shall require
that the witness testify in person and be subject to cross-examination.
  S 2. Subdivision 2-a of section 190.30 of the criminal procedure  law,
as  amended  by  chapter  453 of the laws of 1999, is amended to read as

two or three-a of this section or a sworn statement or copy thereof,  of
the  kind  described  in  subdivision three of this section results in a
written document, such written document may be received  in  such  grand
jury proceeding provided that: (a) a transmittal memorandum completed by
the  person  sending the report, FORM OR RECORD contains a certification
that the report, FORM OR RECORD has not been altered and  a  description
of  the  report,  FORM OR RECORD specifying the number of pages; and (b)
