AN ACT to amend the education law, in  relation  to  application  for  a
  waiver  from  licensing  requirements  for  entities providing certain
  professional services

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

  Section  1.  The  opening  paragraph of paragraph a and paragraph c of
subdivision 1 of section 6503-a of the  education  law,  as  amended  by
chapter 187 of the laws of 2011, are amended to read as follows:
  Notwithstanding any laws to the contrary, except as provided in subdi-
vision  two  of  this  section,  a not-for-profit corporation formed for
charitable, educational, or religious purposes or other similar purposes
deemed acceptable by the department;  or  an  education  corporation  as
defined  in  subdivision  one  of  section two hundred sixteen-a of this
chapter may provide the following services,  provided  that,  except  as
otherwise provided in paragraph b of this subdivision, the entity was in
existence prior to the effective date of this section and has applied to
the  department  for  a waiver pursuant to this section by no later than
[February] JULY first, two thousand [twelve] THIRTEEN:
  c. After the commissioner prescribes the application  form  and  posts
notice  of  its  availability  on  the  department's website, any entity
described in paragraph a of this subdivision providing services  on  the
effective  date  of  this section, must apply for a waiver no later than
[February] JULY first, two thousand [twelve] THIRTEEN.  Upon  submission
of  an  application,  an  entity  may  continue  to  operate and provide
services until the department shall either deny or approve the  entity's
application. After the department renders a timely initial determination
that  the  applicant  has  submitted the information necessary to verify
that the requirements of paragraphs d, e, and f of this subdivision  are
satisfied,  applications  for waivers shall be approved or denied within
ninety days; provided however, that if the waiver application is  denied
the  entity  shall  cease  providing  professional services, pursuant to
paragraph a of this subdivision, in the state of New York.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately and  shall  be  deemed  to
have been in full force and effect on and after February 1, 2012.
