AN  ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to creating the New York
  autism spectrum disorders treatment, training and research council and
  providing for the powers and duties of the council

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

  Section  1.  Intent.  The  legislature  hereby finds and declares that
autism spectrum disorders, hereinafter ASDs, currently  affect  approxi-
mately  one  in  110 children and are considered to be an "urgent public
health concern" by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
  The legislature further finds that New York state  has  not  responded
sufficiently  to  this  crisis.  In  its 2010 report, the New York state
Interagency Task Force on Autism,  hereinafter  Task  Force,  identified
five  primary  needs  of  the  growing  population  of New York citizens
affected by ASDs: coordination of state services, early  identification,
lifelong  service  delivery, increased dissemination of information, and
coordination of research efforts. First, as a collaborative effort of 11
independent state agencies that each serve individuals impacted by ASDs,
the Task Force itself exemplifies the need for coordination of research,
treatment and training responsibilities. Second, while  the  Task  Force
determined  that  early  identification and intervention were crucial to
minimizing the symptoms and impact of ASDs, it reported that only  eight
percent  of pediatricians routinely screen for ASDs and approximately 30
percent of children with ASDs do  not  receive  the  early  intervention
services  provided  by  the  New York State Department of Health. Third,
recognizing that the thousands of children diagnosed with ASDs will soon
age out of the state's educational system, the Task Force noted a dearth
of post-secondary training and transitional services. Fourth,  the  Task
Force  determined  that  individuals and families affected by ASDs would
