AN ACT to amend the executive law,  in  relation  to  including  certain
  information  in  the study of minority and women-owned business enter-
  prise programs

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

  Section  1.  Paragraph  (b)  of  subdivision 1 of section 312-a of the
executive law, as amended by chapter 175 of the laws of 2010, is amended
to read as follows:
  (b) to determine whether there is a disparity between  the  number  of
qualified  minorities and women ready, willing and able, with respect to
labor markets, qualifications and other relevant factors, to participate
in contractor employment, management level bodies, including  boards  of
directors,  and as senior executive officers within contracting entities
and the number of such group members  actually  employed  or  affiliated
with  state  contractors in the aforementioned capacities, and to deter-
mine what changes, if any, should be made to  state  policies  affecting
minority  and  women group populations with regard to state contractors'
employment and appointment practices relative to diverse group  members.
Such  study  shall  include,  but  not be limited to, an analysis of the
history of minority and women-owned  business  enterprise  programs  and
their effectiveness as a means of securing and ensuring participation by
minorities  and  women,  [and]  a  disparity analysis by market area and
region of the state, THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE CURRENT NET WORTH  THRESH-
OLDS,  A  STATISTICAL  ANALYSIS  OF  THE  PARTICIPATION  OF MINORITY AND
WOMEN-OWNED BUSINESS ENTERPRISES CORRELATED WITH  SUCH  BUSINESS  ENTER-
PRISES'  NET  WORTH,  WHETHER  MINORITY  AND WOMEN-OWNED BUSINESS ENTER-
PRISES' NET WORTH AT THE TIME OF CERTIFICATION HAS ANY  EFFECT  ON  SUCH
BUSINESS ENTERPRISE'S SUCCESS OR LACK THEREOF IN PARTICIPATION IN STATE-
WIDE PROCUREMENT, THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE REGULATIONS ADOPTED SINCE THE

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD03172-01-3

AGENCIES AND STATE AUTHORITIES WITH SUCH REGULATIONS, AN ANALYSIS OF THE
NUMBER OF MINORITY AND WOMEN-OWNED BUSINESS ENTERPRISES SEEKING  CERTIF-
ICATION  SINCE THE TWO THOUSAND TEN DISPARITY STUDY, AND THE REASONS, IF
ANY, FOR ANY INCREASE OR DECREASE IN SUCH CERTIFICATIONS.    Such  study
shall  distinguish  between minority males, minority females and non-mi-
nority females in the statistical analysis.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately, provided,  however,  that
the  amendments  to paragraph (b) of subdivision one of section 312-a of
