AN ACT in relation to requiring the  board  of  trustees  of  the  state
  university of New York and the board of trustees of the city universi-
  ty of New York to conduct a study on the economic impact of the estab-
  lishment of kitchen incubators on certain campuses

  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  that  in
order  to improve the economic opportunities for its citizens and entre-
preneurs, it must use the established  capabilities  of  its  university
systems  to  offer  space  and  resources to the next generation of food
manufacturing businesses.
  It has been documented that the chief obstacle for start-up food manu-
facturing businesses is their inability to access affordable  commercial
kitchen space. Currently all over the state, there are only a few kitch-
en  incubators  facing  high  demand and unable to meet the needs of the
many potential start-up businesses.
  Kitchen incubators are valuable resources for New  York  state  as  it
moves   to  promote  more  job  development,  business  development  and
increased tax revenues.
  In New York City alone, there are more than 900 food firms, with  over
16,000  employees and another 2,500 who are self-employed. This has been
viewed as evidence of entrepreneurs' intent  on  developing  their  food
manufacturing  ideas  into  full scale production capabilities and fully
functional business entities.
  Minority and immigrant populations are growing significantly  through-
out  the  state  and so are their number in entrepreneurship activities,
including in the development of foods from their native place of  origin
