AN ACT to  amend  the  executive  law,  in  relation  to  requiring  the
  collection  of  certain demographic information by certain state agen-
  cies, boards and commissions

  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 and
declares the following:
  (a) Asian Americans as well as  Native  Hawaiians  and  other  Pacific
Islanders  are  an  incredibly diverse group. Due to this diversity, the
United States Office  of  Management  and  Budget's  Statistical  Policy
Directive No. 15, entitled Race and Ethnic Standards for Federal Statis-
tics  and  Administrative  Reporting,  separated  the "Asian and Pacific
Islander" category into two distinct and separate categories, now called
"Asians" and "Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders,"  and  these
two distinct categories were used in the 2000 United States Census.  The
United  States  Census  Bureau  currently  reports data for more than 20
different ethnicities within these two categories.
  (b) While Asian Americans as well as Native Hawaiians and other Pacif-
ic Islanders are often misrepresented as a homogeneous group,  they  are
an  extremely  diverse  group,  with  ethnicities from over 30 different
countries. Although Asian American as well as Native Hawaiian and  other
Pacific  Islander  communities  in  this  state  share  geographical and
cultural commonalities, they  also  experience  diverse  social,  educa-
tional,  health,  and  economic  differences  that  are  unique to their
respective communities.
  (c) Existing state law requires state demographic data to be collected
for Asian and some Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander  ethnic  groups.
However,  additional  ethnic groups reported by the United States Census
Bureau are not included that reflect changing  demographics  and  intra-
