AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation to  the  distribution
  of grants for the health workforce retraining program

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

  Section 1. Subdivision 2 of section 2807-g of the public  health  law,
as  added  by  chapter  1  of  the  laws  of 1999, is amended to read as
follows:
  2. Grants shall be made on a competitive basis by region,  in  accord-
ance  with  the  amount raised in the region, PROVIDED THAT NO LESS THAN
TWO AND ONE-HALF PERCENT OF  THE  TOTAL  FUNDS  MADE  AVAILABLE  IN  ANY
REQUEST  FOR PROPOSALS SHALL BE MADE AVAILABLE IN ANY REGION, with pref-
erence within regions given to areas  and  eligible  organizations  that
have experienced or are likely to experience job loss because of changes
in the health care system. If, at the conclusion of the regional compet-
itive  contract  award  process, there are excess funds available within
any regional allocation, such funds shall be  redistributed  to  regions
where  there  is a shortage of funds available for programs which other-
wise qualify for funding pursuant to this section. IF A GRANT  RECIPIENT
HAS  RECEIVED  GRANT AWARDS FOR THE SAME WORKFORCE RETRAINING PROJECT IN
MULTIPLE REGIONS, SUCH GRANT RECIPIENT, WITH THE APPROVAL OF THE COMMIS-
SIONER, MAY REDISTRIBUTE FUNDS AMONG SAID REGIONS.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.




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