  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

  Section  1. Subdivision 2 of section 461-b of the social services law,
as added by chapter 601 of the laws of 1981, paragraph (c) as  added  by
chapter 848 of the laws of 1992, is amended to read as follows:
  2.  (a)  No adult care facility shall be operated unless and until the
operator obtains the written approval of the department.  Such  approval
may be granted only to an operator who satisfactorily demonstrates: that
the operator is of good moral character; that the operator is financial-
ly  responsible;  that there is a public need for the facility; that the
buildings, equipment,  staff,  standards  of  care  and  records  to  be
employed  in the operation comply with applicable law and regulations of
the department and that any license or permit required by  law  for  the
operation  of such facility has been issued to such operation. In deter-
mining whether there is a public need for the facility,  the  department
shall  give  consideration to the relative concentration of such facili-
ties in the area proposed to be serviced. Such approval for family  type
home  for  adults  shall  not  be  granted unless the appropriate social
services official has made the required visitation  and  inspection  and
has submitted a report thereof to the department in accordance with this
article.
  (b)  FOR  EXISTING LICENSED OPERATORS IN GOOD STANDING, THE DEPARTMENT
SHALL DEVELOP A STREAMLINED APPLICATION REVIEW AND APPROVAL PROCESS,  IN
COLLABORATION  WITH  REPRESENTATIVES OF ASSOCIATIONS OF OPERATORS, TO BE
AVAILABLE FOR USE ON OR BEFORE JANUARY  FIRST,  TWO  THOUSAND  FOURTEEN.
