AN ACT to amend the mental hygiene law and the  state  finance  law,  in
  relation  to  the  reinvestment of funds into community-based services
  for persons suffering from chemical dependence

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

  Section  1.  Legislative  intent and findings.   The legislature finds
that declines in the state prison inmate census, due to the  utilization
of  alternatives to incarceration and changes in the sentencing laws for
persons convicted of drug offenses, create concomitant demand and strain
on community-based chemical dependence treatment services.
  The legislature also finds that as state expenditures for incarcerated
individuals are reduced due to the aforementioned interventions,  it  is
necessary  and  appropriate  to establish a dedicated fund, comprised of
those savings, which will be reinvested into the development and  expan-
sion  of  community-based  chemical  dependence treatment and prevention
programs.
  The legislature further finds that as  it  is  well  established  that
chemical  dependence  prevention  and  treatment  is  the most effective
response to chemical abuse and  addiction  and  the  resulting  criminal
offenses,   the  availability  of  effective  prevention  and  treatment
programs should be a prominent component of the state's response.
  S 2. Section 1.03 of the mental hygiene law is amended by adding a new
subdivision 56 to read as follows:
  56.  "COMMUNITY  CHEMICAL  DEPENDENCE  REINVESTMENT  SERVICES"   SHALL
INCLUDE   CHEMICAL   DEPENDENCE   SERVICES  AS  DEFINED  IN  SUBDIVISION
FIFTY-FIVE OF THIS SECTION.
  S 3. The mental hygiene law is amended by adding a new  section  22.12
to read as follows:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD06122-01-1
