AN  ACT to amend the public authorities law, in relation to creating the
  community college high-technology investment program (C-CHIP)

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

  Section  1.  Legislative  intent.  The  legislature  hereby finds that
significant employment  opportunities  exist  in  growing  fields  where
complex  technologies  require  advanced skills. Access to modern, effi-
cient facilities and equipment will provide students with the ability to
learn about, develop and apply new technologies. Having access to  these
modern facilities and equipment will provide students with the knowledge
and  skill required for employment in the ever-expanding high-technology
sector or in other sectors of the economy, including  manufacturing  and
service,  that  utilize advanced, high-technology-related processes. The
legislature finds that it is proper  and  essential  for  the  state  to
support  efforts  that  will  provide  students  with updated and modern
facilities and equipment where skills can be learned in a  setting  that
best  matches  the workplaces for which the students are being prepared.
The legislature also finds and declares that a well-trained and  skilled
workforce will attract businesses seeking to enhance production, modern-
ize or expand as well as start up or relocate to New York state.
  The  legislature  hereby  authorizes  the  creation  of  the community
college high-technology investment program (C-CHIP).
  S 2. The public authorities law is amended by  adding  a  new  section
3154-a to read as follows:
  S  3154-A. COMMUNITY COLLEGE HIGH-TECHNOLOGY INVESTMENT PROGRAM.  1. A
COMMUNITY COLLEGE HIGH-TECHNOLOGY INVESTMENT PROGRAM (HEREAFTER REFERRED
TO AS C-CHIP) IS HEREBY CREATED.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
