S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 6640 I N S E N A T E February 21, 2014 ___________ Introduced by Sens. YOUNG, RANZENHOFER -- read twice and ordered print- ed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities AN ACT to amend the mental hygiene law, the transportation law and the tax law, in relation to enacting the "integrated employment, economic development and safety net system for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities act" THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "integrated employment, economic development and safety net system for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities act". S 2. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature hereby finds and declares that many citizens with intellectual and developmental disabil- ities can be productive members of the general workforce in the state's counties and that with planning, funding realignment, employer tax cred- its, additional resources where necessary, and better coordination of existing state, federal and rural resources, employment for such indi- viduals will increase significantly. The legislature further finds and declares that because of age, sever- ity of disability or other factors, many individuals offered the oppor- tunity will be unable to participate in the general workforce. Therefore there must continue to be a safety net employment system to provide opportunities for such individuals to work alongside their peers with and without disabilities. Finally, the legislature recognizes that economy and efficiency are best served by utilizing the existing and extensive infrastructure for purposes of providing appropriate integrated employment and spurring economic development. S 3. The mental hygiene law is amended by adding a new section 13.41 to read as follows: S 13.41 INTEGRATED EMPLOYMENT, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND SAFETY NET SYSTEM. EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted. LBD13755-04-4
