AN ACT to amend the  criminal  procedure  law  and  the  penal  law,  in
  relation to aggravated criminal conduct

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

  Section 1.  Subdivision 8 of section 180.60 of the criminal  procedure
law,  as  amended by chapter 307 of the laws of 1975, is amended to read
as follows:
  8. Upon such a hearing, only non-hearsay  evidence  is  admissible  to
demonstrate  reasonable  cause to believe that the defendant committed a
felony; except that reports of experts and technicians  in  professional
and  scientific  fields  and  sworn  statements, FORMS OR RECORDS of the
kinds specified in subdivisions two [and], three AND THREE-A of  section
190.30  are admissible to the same extent as in a grand jury proceeding,
unless the court determines, upon application  of  the  defendant,  that
such  hearsay  evidence  is,  under  the particular circumstances of the
case, not sufficiently reliable, in which case the court  shall  require
that the witness testify in person and be subject to cross-examination.
  S  2. Subdivision 2-a of section 190.30 of the criminal procedure law,
as amended by chapter 453 of the laws of 1999, is  amended  to  read  as

  2-a.  When  the electronic transmission of a certified report, FORM OR
RECORD, or certified copy thereof, of the kind described in  subdivision
two  or three-a of this section or a sworn statement or copy thereof, of
the kind described in subdivision three of this  section  results  in  a
written  document,  such  written document may be received in such grand
jury proceeding provided that: (a) a transmittal memorandum completed by
the person sending the report, FORM OR RECORD contains  a  certification
that  the  report, FORM OR RECORD has not been altered and a description
of the report, FORM OR RECORD specifying the number of  pages;  and  (b)

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