BILL NUMBER:S250

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the public health law, in relation to membership of the
advisory council established within the acquired immune deficiency
syndrome institute

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Requires the selection of the advisory council be representative
of people living with HIV/AIDS in the state of New York.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 is amended to reflect the following:

Advisory council members shall be appointed to a four year term and
can be re-appointed for another four years.

Section 1 is further amended to reflect the following:

The advisory council shall include 6 members living with HIV/AIDS.

JUSTIFICATION:
The advisory council must reflect the changing circumstances that
encompass the HIV/AIDS community in the state of New York. By having
term limits, new innovations and ideas from dynamic individuals can
be instituted to keep current with the ever changing climate of
information regarding HIV/AIDS. Further, having members living with
HIV/AIDS gives a voice and perspective that is essential and needed
for many who may feel that they do not have such a voice speaking on
their behalf.
