BILL NUMBER:S1689

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize certain health care professionals licensed to practice in
other jurisdictions to practice in this state in connection with an
event sanctioned by the World Triathlon Corporation;
and providing for the
repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE:
This legislation allows health care
professionals to perform
services at the Ironman triathlon to be held on July 24, 2011 in Lake
Placid, New York.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1- allows any person who is licensed to
practice as a physician, physician's assistant, massage therapist,
physical therapist, chiropractor, dentist, optometrist, nurse, nurse
practitioner or podiatrist in another state or territory, who is in
good standing with such state or territory, and who has been
appointed by World Triathlon Corporation to provide professional
services to competitors at this Ironman event.

Section 2- provides the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
The triathlon in Lake placid is a one day 2.4-mile swim
and 112-mile bike ride which concludes with a 26.2-mile marathon.
As this event is physically taxing on the athlete, the health and
safety of the participants in the days before the event and
especially during and after the event is crucial. This legislation
would allow licensed health care professionals from other states who
volunteer and are sanctioned by world Triathlon Corporation to
perform services for the athletes.

Especially important at Ironman events is the "massage" tent that is
available to the athletes following the race where muscle cramps and
minor aches and pains can be attended to. Without this immediate
attention, many of these competitors would require further intensive
medical
intervention. The average time an athlete spends in this area is
approximately seven minutes, which is not a formal massage treatment
by any means. To service the 1,500 athletes, licensed volunteers from
other states are necessary.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
Legislation of this type has been passed by the
Legislature in the past for the Olympic Games in Lake Placid in 1980
and the Goodwill Games in New York City in 1997 as well as for the
2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 Ironman
USA triathlons in Lake Placid.

expire and be deemed repealed July 25, 2011.
