AN ACT to amend the education law, the limited liability company law and
  the partnership law, in relation to the practice of  naturopathy;  and
  to  amend  the  social  services  law, in relation to the reporting of
  child abuse

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

  Section 1. Legislative intent.  In order to protect the public health,
safety  and  welfare  of  the citizens who desire naturopathic care, the
legislature finds it is necessary to regulate the practice of  naturopa-
thy by providing licensure for qualified practitioners. It is the legis-
lature's  intent that only practitioners who meet and maintain standards
of competence are recognized by the public as licensed naturopaths.  The
legislature   recognizes   that,   unlike   other   currently   licensed
professions, naturopathic doctors are formally educated in  the  use  of
natural therapies, natural substances and pharmacological substances for
common  health conditions and disease prevention.  Naturopaths serve the
public as experts in drug/nutrient and drug/herb interactions.
  S 2. The education law is amended by adding a  new  article  132-A  to
read as follows:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD01174-01-1
