AN ACT to amend the executive law, in  relation  to  statewide  disaster
  preparedness plan and emergency response

  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  and  declares  that  due to the extreme weather patterns that the
state of New York has experienced in recent years, there is a  need  for
improvement  of  the statewide preparedness plan to better equip locali-
ties in assisting citizens. The disaster preparedness  commission  shall
develop  a  comprehensive disaster defense plan that maps out the course
of action for all state and local authorities, departments, and agencies
in the event that the state experiences a  disaster  that  affects  more
than one county in the state.  The public needs a more readily available
and comprehensive set of instructions for the proper course of action to
be taken in the event of emergencies and disasters.
  S  2.  Subdivision  3 of section 22 of the executive law is amended by
adding a new paragraph d to read as follows:
  D. PERIODIC PLAN REVISION. THE ANNUAL REVIEW OF THE PLANS  SHALL  TAKE
INTO CONSIDERATION THE REPORTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS MADE BY ANY APPROPRI-
ATE  TASK  FORCE  OR  COMMISSION  FORMED AS A RESULT OR IN RESPONSE TO A
SPECIFIC INCIDENT INVOLVING A THREAT, DISASTER OR  EMERGENCY  INCLUDING,
BUT  NOT LIMITED TO, THE BIPARTISAN TASK FORCE ON HURRICANE SANDY RECOV-
ERY. THE COMMISSION SHALL WORK WITH THE GOVERNOR, THE LEGISLATURE, COUN-
TY, AND MUNICIPAL OFFICIALS TO ENSURE THAT THE PLAN IS SENSITIVE TO  THE
NEEDS OF THE INDIVIDUAL LOCALITY OR AREA OF THE STATE.
  S 3. Subparagraphs 6 and 16 of paragraph b of subdivision 3 of section
22 of the executive law, as amended by section 3 of part B of chapter 56

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