AN ACT to amend the social services law, in relation to  age  of  infant
  and reimbursement

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

  Section 1. Subdivision 4 of section 410-x of the social services  law,
as  added by section 52 of part B of chapter 436 of the laws of 1997, is
amended to read as follows:
  4. The amount to be paid or allowed for child care  assistance  funded
under  the block grant shall be the actual cost of care but no more than
the applicable market-related payment rate established by the department
in regulations. The payment rates established by the department shall be
sufficient to ensure equal access for eligible  children  to  comparable
child care assistance in the substate area that are provided to children
whose  parents  are not eligible to receive assistance under any federal
or state programs. Such payment rates shall take into account the  vari-
ations in the costs of providing child care in different settings and to
children  of different age groups, and the additional costs of providing
child care for children with special needs.  FOR THE PURPOSE  OF  DETER-
MINING  SUCH  PAYMENT RATES, AN INFANT SHALL BE CONSIDERED A CHILD UNDER
THE AGE OF TWO.
  S 2. This act shall take effect April 1, 2015.
