AN ACT to amend the correction law, in relation to agreements for custo-
  dy of definite sentence inmates

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

  Section  1.  Section 91 of the correction law, as amended by section 5
of part H of chapter 56 of the laws of  2009,  is  amended  to  read  as
follows:
  S  91.  Agreements  for  custody  of definite sentence inmates. 1. The
commissioner may, SUBJECT TO THE PROVISIONS OF SUBDIVISION FIVE OF  THIS
SECTION, enter into an agreement with any county or with the city of New
York  to  provide  for  custody by the department of persons who receive
definite sentences of imprisonment with terms in excess of  ninety  days
who  otherwise  would serve such sentences in the jail, workhouse, peni-
tentiary or other local correctional [institution]  FACILITY  maintained
by  such  locality;  provided,  however,  that a person committed to the
custody of the department pursuant to an agreement established  by  this
section,  except  a  person  committed pursuant to an agreement with the
city of New York, shall be delivered to a reception center designated by
the commissioner for an initial processing  period  which  shall  be  no
longer than seven days, and thereafter, shall be transferred to a gener-
al  confinement correctional facility located in the same county or in a
county adjacent to the county  where  such  person  would  otherwise  be
committed  to a local correctional facility. In the event, however, that
exigent circumstances related to health, safety or security arise  which
require  the immediate transfer of an inmate to a different facility not
within the county or adjacent county, then the department shall, as soon
thereafter as practicable, arrange for such inmate to be returned to the
jurisdiction of the county from which he or she was committed.

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