S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 882 2013-2014 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E (PREFILED) January 9, 2013 ___________ 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.
