Introduced  by Sens. GRIFFO, CARLUCCI -- read twice and ordered printed,
  and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules

AN ACT to amend the mental hygiene law, in relation to establishing  the
  diagnostic  and  statistical manual of mental disorders (DSM-5) imple-
  mentation council; and providing for the  repeal  of  such  provisions
  upon expiration thereof

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

  Section 1. Legislative  intent.  The  legislature  finds  that  early,
continuous  and  appropriate  treatment  facilitates  the  best possible
outcome for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).  The
legislature  further finds that while periodic reformation of diagnostic
criteria is vital to ensure quality care, the legislature and state must
be able to respond accordingly if such changes  may  impact  individuals
currently  receiving  treatment.  Therefore,  the  legislature  finds it
appropriate to establish a council consisting of stakeholders, including
parents and physicians, to advise  the  state  and  legislature  on  the
implementation  and  impact of the transition from the fourth edition of
the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders to the  crite-
ria  implemented  by  the  fifth  edition to ensure that individuals who
qualify under DSM-IV will continue to qualify under DSM-5. The  legisla-
ture  further  finds that until such time that the state understands the
impacts it is important to  ensure  the  continued  benefits  and  state
services for individuals with a diagnosis.
  S  2. The mental hygiene law is amended by adding new section 16.38 to
read as follows:
S 16.38 DIAGNOSTIC AND STATISTICAL MANUAL OF  MENTAL  DISORDERS  (DSM-5)
          IMPLEMENTATION COUNCIL.
  1.(A)  THE  OFFICE SHALL ESTABLISH A DIAGNOSTIC AND STATISTICAL MANUAL
OF MENTAL DISORDERS (DSM-5) IMPLEMENTATION COUNCIL.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD11530-02-3
