S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 4800 2013-2014 Regular Sessions I N A S S E M B L Y February 11, 2013 ___________ Introduced by M. of A. KATZ, FINCH, SALADINO, OAKS, RAIA -- read once and referred to the Committee on Governmental Operations AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to establishing a high- tech employment and training program within the New York state founda- tion for science, technology and innovation THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings and declaration. The legislature here- by finds and declares that an appropriately skilled workforce is neces- sary to ensure the creation and growth of high technology businesses in New York. The introduction of new technologies in business and industry is an ongoing, dynamic process which necessitates a system of training and education that is responsive to constantly changing skill require- ments. Further, the legislature finds that technology has also changed the manner in which training and education can be provided within a firm. While the use of sophisticated computer based training is not new, the cost of development of such applications results in limited access. Using technology to create a more effective and cost efficient delivery system for training and education services for firms in the state is critical to foster the young, developing high-tech sector in the state of New York. S 2. The executive law is amended by adding a new section 209-u to read as follows: S 209-U. HIGH-TECH EMPLOYMENT AND TRAINING PROGRAM. 1. FOR PURPOSES OF THIS SECTION: (A) "OFFICE" SHALL MEAN THE NEW YORK STATE FOUNDATION FOR SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION. (B) "HIGH-TECH INDUSTRY" SHALL MEAN THOSE INDUSTRIES WITH AN ABOVE AVERAGE PERCENTAGE OF SCIENTIFIC, TECHNICAL, AND ENGINEERING PERSONNEL AND THAT ARE INVOLVED IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND MANUFACTURE OF INNOVATIVE EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
