BILL NUMBER:S2328

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation
to restricting placement of level two or level three sex offenders in
any temporary emergency housing or homeless shelters used to house
families with children

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Prohibits placing of level 2 and 3
sex offenders in any temporary emergency housing or homeless shelters
used to house families with children.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Adds a new section 131-y to the
social services law prohibiting placement of level 2 and level 3 sex
offenders in temporary housing or homeless shelters used to house
families with children.

JUSTIFICATION: This legislation would require municipalities to place
homeless level 2 and level 3 sex offenders in adult-only shelters or
emergency housing where they will not be in close contact with
children. Sex offenders are already barred from living in public
housing; this measure extends the same protection to homeless
families. This amendment changes the reference from the Office of
Children and Family Services to the Office of Temporary and Disability
Assistance.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2008: S.7742 - Referred to Social Services,
Children & Families 2009-10: S.1867 - Referred to Social Services,
Children & Families 2011-12: S.990 - Senate Calendar No. 716

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: No costs to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect 180 days after it shall
have become law.
