BILL NUMBER:S1369

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general business law, in relation
to requiring every keeper of a hotel or motel or inn to make condoms
available for sale to guests

PURPOSE: To prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases by
requiring hotels, motels and inns to make available condoms for sale.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Adds a new section 204-b to the General
Business Law for sale of condoms. Provides that owners of hotels,
motels or inns shall have condoms or similar prophylactics available
for sale in the registration office.

JUSTIFICATION: Over the past few years, this state has seen an
enormous increase in then incidence of AIDS. Rendering laws to prevent
AIDS should, therefore, be of primary concern. Medical studies have
shown that proper use of condoms will minimize the risk of spreading
the AIDS virus. This bill is an attempt to access such prophylactics
in public accommodations.
