Introduced  by  Sen.  HANNON -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules

AN ACT to amend the public health law, the tax law and the state finance
  law, in relation to providing for taxpayer gifts for  lupus  education
  and  prevention,  and  establishing the lupus education and prevention
  fund and outreach program

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

  Section  1.  Legislative  intent.  The  legislature  hereby  finds the
following:
  (a) Lupus is a serious, complex, debilitating autoimmune disease  that
can  cause  inflammation and tissue damage to virtually any organ system
in the body, including the skin, joints, other connective tissue,  blood
and blood vessels, heart, lungs, kidney, and brain.
  (b)  Lupus research estimates that approximately one and a half to two
million Americans live with some form of lupus; lupus affects women nine
times more often than men and eighty percent of newly diagnosed cases of
lupus develop among women of childbearing age.
  (c) Lupus disproportionately affects women of color -- it  is  two  to
three  times  more common among African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians and
Native Americans and is generally more prevalent in minority populations
-- a health disparity that remains unexplained. According to the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention  the  rate  of  lupus  mortality  has
increased  since the late 1970s and is higher among older African-Ameri-
can women.
  (d) No new drugs have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Adminis-
tration specifically for lupus in nearly forty years and  while  current
treatments  for  the disease can be effective, they can lead to damaging
side effects.
  (e) The pain and fatigue associated with lupus can  threaten  people's
ability  to live independently, make it difficult to maintain employment

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