AN  ACT  to amend the executive law, in relation to establishing a high-
  tech employment and training program within the New York state founda-
  tion for science, technology and innovation

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings and declaration. The legislature here-
by  finds and declares that an appropriately skilled workforce is neces-
sary to ensure the creation and growth of high technology businesses  in
New  York. The introduction of new technologies in business and industry
is an ongoing, dynamic process which necessitates a system  of  training
and  education  that is responsive to constantly changing skill require-
ments.
  Further, the legislature finds that technology has  also  changed  the
manner  in  which  training and education can be provided within a firm.
While the use of sophisticated computer based training is not  new,  the
cost  of  development  of  such  applications results in limited access.
Using technology to create a more effective and cost efficient  delivery
system  for  training  and  education services for firms in the state is
critical to foster the young, developing high-tech sector in  the  state
of New York.
  S  2.  The  executive  law is amended by adding a new section 209-u to
read as follows:
  S 209-U. HIGH-TECH EMPLOYMENT AND TRAINING PROGRAM. 1. FOR PURPOSES OF
THIS SECTION:
  (A) "OFFICE" SHALL MEAN THE NEW YORK  STATE  FOUNDATION  FOR  SCIENCE,
TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD01919-01-1
