  Committee on Aging

AN ACT to amend the administrative code of the  city  of  New  York,  in
  relation  to  establishing  a temporary moratorium on the construction
  and/or opening of new adult day care centers; and  providing  for  the
  repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings and  intent.  The  legislature  hereby
finds  that  there  has been a substantial increase in the number of new
adult day care centers constructed and/or opened  in  the  city  of  New
York,  leading  to concerns regarding the quality of and actual need for
additional adult day care centers within the five boroughs. The legisla-
ture declares that the absence of a statute authorizing  the  department
of  buildings  of  the city of New York to institute a moratorium on the
construction and/or opening of such  new  adult  day  care  centers  has
created  confusion and uncertainty as to the services and general super-
vision that such centers should provide to the elderly  and  individuals
with disabilities. However, the legislature finds that such a moratorium
should not affect current adult day care centers that are open and oper-
ating on or before the effective date of this act.
  S  2.  The  administrative  code of the city of New York is amended by
adding a new section 28-105.13 to read as follows:
  S 28-105.13 TEMPORARY MORATORIUM ON CONSTRUCTION AND/OR OPENING OF NEW
ADULT DAY CARE CENTERS. 1. FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS SECTION, "ADULT  DAY
CARE CENTER" OR "ADULT DAY SERVICE" SHALL MEAN A NON-RESIDENTIAL FACILI-
TY  PROVIDING  MEALS,  ACTIVITIES,  SOCIAL AND RECREATIONAL OUTINGS, AND
GENERAL SUPERVISION FOR THE ELDERLY AND/OR INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES
WITH A VARIETY OF MEDICAL NEEDS. AN ADULT DAY CARE CENTER IS ALSO  TYPI-
CALLY ASSIGNED A UNIQUE NATIONAL PROVIDER IDENTIFIER (NPI) NUMBER BY THE
FEDERAL CENTERS FOR MEDICARE AND MEDICAID SERVICES.

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