AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to directing  the  office
  of  children and family services and the office of temporary and disa-
  bility assistance to prepare a report concerning low income  custodial
  parents'  requirement  to  show good cause for a refusal to seek child
  support as a requirement for  receiving  a  child  care  subsidy;  and
  providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings.   The legislature hereby  finds  that
certain  parties allege that the office of children and family services'
regulations and directives requiring low  income  custodial  parents  to
actively  seek  child  support  from  non-custodial parents or show good
cause as to why he or she cannot seek child support, as a  condition  of
eligibility for a child care subsidy, constitutes such an extreme disin-
centive  to many individuals in need of such assistance and as such fail
to pursue needed assistance. The legislature finds that this is a  seri-
ous allegation, and declares its intent to obtain information as speedi-
ly  as possible from the state agencies involved in order to take appro-
priate action.
  S 2. The executive law is amended by adding a  new  section  501-e  to
read as follows:
  S  501-E.  REPORT  CONCERNING  CHILD CARE SUBSIDIES AND GOOD CAUSE FOR
FAILURE TO SEEK CHILD SUPPORT.  1.  THE OFFICE OF  CHILDREN  AND  FAMILY
SERVICES,  IN  COLLABORATION WITH THE OFFICE OF TEMPORARY AND DISABILITY
ASSISTANCE, SHALL SUBMIT A REPORT TO  THE  TEMPORARY  PRESIDENT  OF  THE
SENATE,  THE SPEAKER OF THE ASSEMBLY, THE CHAIR OF THE SENATE COMMITTEES
ON SOCIAL SERVICES, AND CHILDREN AND  FAMILIES  AND  THE  CHAIR  OF  THE
ASSEMBLY  COMMITTEE  ON CHILDREN AND FAMILIES CONCERNING THE INFORMATION
RELATED TO GOOD CAUSE FOR REFUSAL TO COOPERATE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS  OF

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