AN ACT to amend the social  services  law,  in  relation  to  permitting

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

  Section  1. Subdivision 2 of section 22 of the social services law, as
added by chapter 473 of the laws of 1978, is amended to read as follows:
  2. In connection with any appeal pursuant to  this  section,  with  or
without a fair hearing, the commissioner may designate and authorize one
or  more  appropriate  members  of his staff OR INDEPENDENT FAIR HEARING
OFFICERS to consider and decide such appeals. Any staff member OR  INDE-
PENDENT  FAIR  HEARING  OFFICER  so designated and authorized shall have
authority to decide such appeals on behalf of the commissioner with  the
same  force  and  effect  as if the commissioner had made the decisions.
Fair hearings held in connection with such  appeals  shall  be  held  on
behalf  of  the commissioner by members of his staff OR INDEPENDENT FAIR
HEARING OFFICERS who are employed for such purposes  or  who  have  been
designated  and  authorized  by  him therefor.   THE FAIR HEARING MAY BE
CONDUCTED BY MEANS OF A CONFERENCE TELEPHONE, VIDEO CONFERENCE EQUIPMENT
OR SIMILAR COMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT ALLOWING ALL  PERSONS  PARTICIPATING
IN  SUCH  HEARING TO HEAR EACH OTHER AT THE SAME TIME. The provisions of
this subdivision shall apply to  fair  hearings  conducted  pursuant  to
subdivision  eight  of  section four hundred twenty-two of this chapter,
and to any hearing required pursuant  to  this  chapter  concerning  the
denial,  suspension or revocation of any permit, certificate or license,
and to any hearing held pursuant to section four hundred  fifty-five  of
this chapter.
  S  2.  This  act shall take effect immediately provided, however, that
the commissioner may promulgate any rules or regulations  necessary  for
the implementation of this act before this act shall have become a law.

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