Introduced by Sen. YOUNG -- (at request of the Legislative Commission on
  Rural  Resources)  -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed
  to be committed to the Committee on Health

AN ACT to amend the public health law and the real property tax law,  in
  relation  to authorizing real property taxing jurisdictions to grant a
  tax exemption for a primary residence purchased by a  physician  in  a
  physician shortage area

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

  Section 1.  Legislative findings and intent.  The  legislature  hereby
finds  that  several  communities  within  the state, particularly those
located within rural areas, lack adequate access to  physicians.  It  is
well  established  that  ensuring the sufficient availability of general
practitioners and specialists directly  benefits  the  health  of  state
residents, and the legislature has enacted several measures towards that
end.
  Furthermore,  the legislature finds that municipalities are often best
situated to evaluate the needs of their communities.  Therefore,  it  is
the intent of the legislature to offer counties, cities, towns, villages
and school districts the option to provide real property tax exemptions,
should  they  determine  that  such an incentive would aid in attracting
physicians to areas currently underserved by the medical community.
  S 2. Section 206 of the public health law is amended by adding  a  new
subdivision 29 to read as follows:
  29. (A) THE COMMISSIONER SHALL BIENNIALLY DESIGNATE AND MAKE AVAILABLE
A LIST OF DESIGNATED PHYSICIAN SHORTAGE AREAS IN THE STATE. A DESIGNATED
PHYSICIAN SHORTAGE AREA SHALL BE A COUNTY OR OTHER SUB-COUNTY GEOGRAPHIC
AREA  DETERMINED BY THE COMMISSIONER TO BE IN SHORT SUPPLY OF PHYSICIANS
IN PRIMARY CARE PRACTICE AND/OR ONE OR MORE  MEDICAL  SPECIALITIES.  THE
LIST  SHALL INDICATE FOR EACH DESIGNATED PHYSICIAN SHORTAGE AREA, IF THE

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD02531-03-3
