  Developmental Disabilities

AN ACT to amend the mental hygiene law, in relation to establishing  the
  task force on adults with autism; 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 finds that autism  is
a  lifelong  disability, yet much of the focus on autism spectrum disor-
ders relates to education and development, and  neglects  concerns  that
may  arise  later  in  a  person's life. The legislature also finds that
adults with autism may face significant challenges in various aspects of
their lives, including such areas as job placement,  housing  and  long-
term  care.  Further, just as the autism spectrum covers a wide range of
functional abilities, so does the need for  services  and  supports  for
adults  with autism. Consequently, the legislature finds that there is a
pressing need for policymakers and advocates in the state  to  formulate
achievable  goals  for state government to meet in order to better serve
the community of adults with autism spectrum disorders. To this end,  it
is  in  the  public  interest  to  establish a task force on adults with
autism to develop a comprehensive plan for meeting the various needs  of
adults with autism spectrum disorders living in New York.
  S  2.  The mental hygiene law is amended by adding a new section 13.41
to read as follows:
S 13.41 TASK FORCE ON ADULTS WITH AUTISM.
  (A) THERE IS HEREBY ESTABLISHED THE TASK FORCE ON ADULTS  WITH  AUTISM
IN THE OFFICE. THE PURPOSE OF THE TASK FORCE SHALL BE TO STUDY, EVALUATE
AND  DEVELOP RECOMMENDATIONS RELATING TO SPECIFIC ACTIONABLE MEASURES TO
SUPPORT AND MEET THE NEEDS OF ADULTS WITH AUTISM WHO  ARE  RESIDENTS  OF
THE  STATE,  INCLUDING  SUCH NEEDS AS VOCATIONAL, RESIDENTIAL AND SOCIAL

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