AN ACT to amend the criminal procedure law,  in  relation  to  anonymous
  juries  and  to  repeal  subdivision 1-a of section 270.15 of such law
  relating thereto

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

  Section  1.  Paragraph  (a)  of subdivision 1 of section 270.15 of the
criminal procedure law, as amended by chapter 467 of the laws  of  1985,
is amended to read as follows:
  (a)  If  no  challenge  to  the panel is made as prescribed by section
270.10, or if such challenge is made and  disallowed,  the  court  shall
direct  that  the  names of not less than twelve members of the panel be
drawn and called as prescribed by the judiciary law, EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE
REQUIRED BY SECTION 270.17 OF THIS  ARTICLE.  Such  persons  shall  take
their  places  in  the jury box and shall be immediately sworn to answer
truthfully questions asked them  relative  to  their  qualifications  to
serve  as jurors in the action. In its discretion, the court may require
prospective jurors to complete a questionnaire concerning their  ability
to  serve  as  fair  and  impartial jurors, including but not limited to
place of birth,  current  address,  education,  occupation,  prior  jury
service,  knowledge  of, relationship to, or contact with the court, any
party, witness or attorney in the action and any other fact relevant  to
his  or her service on the jury. An official form for such questionnaire
shall be developed by the chief administrator of the courts in consulta-
tion with the administrative board of the courts. A  copy  of  question-
naires completed by the members of the panel shall be given to the court
and each attorney prior to examination of prospective jurors.
  S  2.  Subdivision 1-a of section 270.15 of the criminal procedure law
is REPEALED.

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