AN ACT to amend the state finance law, the public  health  law  and  the
  labor  law,  in  relation  to  enacting  the "New York state community
  health care investment fund act"


  Section  1.  Short  title. This act shall be known and may be cited as
the "New York state community health care investment fund act".
  S 2. Legislative intent. The  legislature  hereby  declares  that  the

cancer  deaths.  The  health care challenges in New York state include a
high incidence of infectious disease, limited access to adequate  prena-

state's children under 18 years of age live in poverty. Furthermore, the
state's overall rank among the rest of  the  country  decreased  between
2005  and 2006, from 26th place to 29th place. Despite a high per capita
spending on health ($316 per person) almost three million of  its  resi-
