AN  ACT  to amend the social services law, in relation to determinations
  made by the statewide central register of child abuse and maltreatment

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

  Section  1.    Paragraph  (a)  of  subdivision 2 of section 422 of the
social services law, as amended by chapter 574 of the laws of  2008,  is
amended to read as follows:
  (a) The central register shall be capable of receiving telephone calls
alleging  child  abuse  or  maltreatment  and of immediately identifying
prior reports of child abuse or maltreatment and capable  of  monitoring
the provision of child protective service twenty-four hours a day, seven
days  a  week. To effectuate this purpose, but subject to the provisions
of the appropriate local plan for  the  provision  of  child  protective
services,  there  shall  be a single statewide telephone number that all
persons, whether mandated by the law or not, may use to  make  telephone
calls  alleging  child  abuse  or  maltreatment  and that all persons so
authorized by this title may use for determining the existence of  prior
reports  in order to evaluate the condition or circumstances of a child.
In addition to the single statewide telephone number, there shall  be  a
special  unlisted  express  telephone  number  and a telephone facsimile
number for use only by persons mandated by law to make telephone  calls,
or to transmit telephone facsimile information on a form provided by the
commissioner  OF  CHILDREN  AND FAMILY SERVICES, alleging child abuse or
maltreatment, and for use by all persons so authorized by this title for
determining the existence of prior reports  in  order  to  evaluate  the
condition or circumstances of a child. When any allegations contained in
such telephone calls could reasonably constitute a report of child abuse

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