BILL NUMBER:S6835

TITLE OF BILL: An act authorizing and directing the boards of
trustees of SUNY and CUNY to review and revise the report of the New
York State Governor's Task Force on Campus Fire Safety issued in July
2000

PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill is to direct the board of trustees
of the state university of New York and the board of trustees of the
city university of New York to review the report on campus fire safety
produced in July 2000 and to update sections pertaining to the extent
and adequacy of fire suppression and detection systems within the
state and university systems.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: None.

JUSTIFICATION: The New York State Governor's Task Force on Campus
Fire Safety report incorporated short-term steps and long-terms steps
for addressing the fire safety issues examined by the task force. The
task force came to conclusions pertaining to fire suppression and
detection systems on campus residential structures that stated that
all newly-constructed college residential structures should be
equipped with a full sprinkler system and that a phased retrofit
program should be established to install sprinkler systems in all
areas of existing campus residential structures during significant
rehabilitation. This new legislation would allow the boards of
trustees to review the report and attain information on whether the
steps and recommendations such as the one-stated above were followed.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
