AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation to the  establishment
  of an electronic death registration system

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

  Section 1. The public health law is amended by adding  a  new  section
4148 to read as follows:
  S 4148. ELECTRONIC DEATH REGISTRATION SYSTEM. 1. LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS.
THE  LEGISLATURE  FINDS THAT IT IS NECESSARY TO UPDATE AND MODERNIZE THE
STATE'S SYSTEM  OF  FILNG  AND  MAINTAINING  INFORMATION  AND  DOCUMENTS
RELATED  TO  THE REGISTRATION OF DEATH. AN ELECTRONIC DEATH REGISTRATION
SYSTEM WILL PROMOTE ACCURACY AND PROVIDE FOR MORE TIMELY TRANSMISSION OF
DOCUMENTATION, PROMOTING EFFICIENCY IN THE OPERATIONS OF THE DEPARTMENT,
WHICH OVERSEES THE DEATH REGISTRATION FILING PROCESS; LOCAL  REGISTRARS,
WHICH ACCEPT AND FILE CERTIFICATES OF DEATH AND ISSUE BURIAL AND REMOVAL
PERMITS;  HEALTH  CARE  INSTITUTIONS  AND  PRACTITIONERS,  CORONERS  AND
MEDICAL EXAMINERS, WHICH PREPARE CERTIFICATES  OF  DEATH;  AND  LICENSED
FUNERAL  DIRECTORS AND UNDERTAKERS, WHO REQUIRE PROMPT ACCESS TO CERTIF-
ICATES OF DEATH TO CONDUCT BURIALS AND FUNERALS  IN  A  TIMELY  FASHION.
LICENSED FUNERAL DIRECTORS AND UNDERTAKERS HAVE EXPRESSED THEIR INTEREST
IN PARTNERING WITH THE DEPARTMENT TO SUPPORT THE ESTABLISHMENT AND MAIN-
TENANCE  OF SUCH SYSTEM THROUGH A CONTRIBUTION, TENDERED FOR EACH BURIAL
AND REMOVAL PERMIT ISSUED TO A LICENSED FUNERAL DIRECTOR OR  UNDERTAKER,
IN THE AMOUNT OF TWENTY DOLLARS.
  2.  THE DEPARTMENT IS HEREBY AUTHORIZED AND DIRECTED TO DESIGN, IMPLE-
MENT AND MAINTAIN AN ELECTRONIC DEATH REGISTRATION SYSTEM  FOR  COLLECT-
ING,  STORING, RECORDING, TRANSMITTING, AMENDING, CORRECTING AND AUTHEN-
TICATING INFORMATION, AS NECESSARY AND APPROPRIATE TO COMPLETE  A  DEATH
REGISTRATION,  AND  TO  GENERATE  SUCH  DOCUMENTS  AS  DETERMINED BY THE
DEPARTMENT IN RELATION TO A DEATH OCCURRING IN THIS STATE. THE  CONTRIB-

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