Introduced  by  Sen. SAVINO -- (at request of the Office of Children and
  Family Services) -- read twice and ordered printed, and  when  printed
  to be committed to the Committee on Children and Families

AN ACT to amend the social services law, in relation to the differential
  response  programs for child protection assessments or investigations;
  and to amend chapter 452 of the  laws  of  2007  amending  the  social
  services  law  relating to establishing differential response programs
  for child protection assessments or  investigations,  in  relation  to
  making such provisions permanent

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

  Section 1. Subdivisions 1  and  8  of  section  427-a  of  the  social
services  law,  as added by chapter 452 of the laws of 2007, are amended
to read as follows:
  1. Any social services district [located outside  of  a  city  with  a
population  of more than two million] may, upon the authorization of the
office of children and family services, establish a program that  imple-
ments differential responses to reports of child abuse and maltreatment.
Such  programs  [would]  SHALL  create  a family assessment and services
track as an alternative means of addressing certain matters  [currently]
OTHERWISE  investigated  as  allegations  of child abuse or maltreatment
pursuant to this title. Notwithstanding any other provision  of  law  to
the  contrary, the provisions of this section [will] SHALL apply only to
those cases involving allegations of abuse  or  maltreatment  in  family
settings  expressly included in the family assessment and services track
of the differential response program, and only in those social  services
districts  authorized  by  the office of children and family services to
implement a differential response  program.  Such  cases  shall  not  be
subject  to  the  requirements otherwise applicable to cases reported to
the statewide central register of child abuse and maltreatment  pursuant
to this title, except as set forth in this section.

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