AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to creating the New  York
  autism spectrum disorders treatment, training and research council and
  providing for the powers and duties of the council

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

  Section 1. Intent. The legislature  hereby  finds  and  declares  that
autism  spectrum  disorders, hereinafter ASDs, currently affect approxi-
mately one in 110 children and are considered to be  an  "urgent  public
health concern" by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
  The  legislature  further  finds that New York state has not responded
sufficiently to this crisis. In its 2010  report,  the  New  York  state
Interagency  Task  Force  on  Autism, hereinafter Task Force, identified
five primary needs of  the  growing  population  of  New  York  citizens
affected  by ASDs: coordination of state services, early identification,
lifelong service delivery, increased dissemination of  information,  and
coordination of research efforts. First, as a collaborative effort of 11
independent state agencies that each serve individuals impacted by ASDs,
the Task Force itself exemplifies the need for coordination of research,
treatment  and  training  responsibilities. Second, while the Task Force
determined that early identification and intervention  were  crucial  to
minimizing  the symptoms and impact of ASDs, it reported that only eight
percent of pediatricians routinely screen for ASDs and approximately  30
percent  of  children  with  ASDs  do not receive the early intervention
services provided by the New York State  Department  of  Health.  Third,
recognizing that the thousands of children diagnosed with ASDs will soon
age out of the state's educational system, the Task Force noted a dearth
of  post-secondary  training and transitional services. Fourth, the Task
Force determined that individuals and families affected  by  ASDs  would
