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.
