Introduced  by Sens. BONACIC, FUSCHILLO, GRIFFO, LANZA -- read twice and
  ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee  on
  Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities

AN  ACT to amend the mental hygiene law, in relation to establishing the
  task force on adults with autism; 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 findings. The legislature finds that autism is
a lifelong disability, yet much of the focus on autism  spectrum  disor-
ders  relates  to  education and development, and neglects concerns that
may arise later in a person's life.  The  legislature  also  finds  that
adults with autism may face significant challenges in various aspects of
their  lives,  including  such areas as job placement, housing and long-
term care. Further, just as the autism spectrum covers a wide  range  of
functional  abilities,  so  does  the need for services and supports for
adults with autism. Consequently, the legislature finds that there is  a
pressing  need  for policymakers and advocates in the state to formulate
achievable goals for state government to meet in order to  better  serve
the  community of adults with autism spectrum disorders. To this end, it
is in the public interest to establish  a  task  force  on  adults  with
autism  to develop a comprehensive plan for meeting the various needs of
adults with autism spectrum disorders living in New York.
  S 2. The mental hygiene law is amended by adding a new  section  13.41
to read as follows:
S 13.41 TASK FORCE ON ADULTS WITH AUTISM.
  (A)  THERE  IS HEREBY ESTABLISHED THE TASK FORCE ON ADULTS WITH AUTISM
IN THE OFFICE. THE PURPOSE OF THE TASK FORCE SHALL BE TO STUDY, EVALUATE
AND DEVELOP RECOMMENDATIONS RELATING TO SPECIFIC ACTIONABLE MEASURES  TO
SUPPORT  AND  MEET  THE NEEDS OF ADULTS WITH AUTISM WHO ARE RESIDENTS OF

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