  printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules

AN ACT to amend the correction law, in relation to  authorizing  munici-
  palities to establish residency restrictions for sex offenders

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings. It is the sense  of  the  legislature
that  determinations  regarding  restrictions  upon the residence of sex
offenders who are required to register pursuant  to  the  provisions  of
article  6-C  of  the correction law should be made by the local munici-
pality in which such offenders reside  since  municipalities  are  in  a
better  position  than  the state, after taking into consideration local
conditions and after determining what  entities  with  vulnerable  popu-
lations  would require protection from registered sex offenders, to make
such determinations.
  S 2. Section 168-w of the correction law, as relettered by chapter 604
of the laws of 2005, is redesignated section 168-x  and  a  new  section
168-w is added to read as follows:
  S 168-W. MUNICIPAL RESIDENCY RESTRICTIONS.  ANY MUNICIPALITY MAY ENACT
A  LOCAL  LAW  WHICH  IMPOSES  RESIDENCY RESTRICTIONS UPON SEX OFFENDERS
REQUIRED TO REGISTER PURSUANT TO THIS ARTICLE, PROVIDED THAT SUCH  RESI-
DENCY  RESTRICTIONS  ARE  NO  LESS RESTRICTIVE THAN THE REQUIREMENTS SET
FORTH IN PARAGRAPH (A) OF SUBDIVISION FOUR-A OF  SECTION  65.10  OF  THE
PENAL  LAW  AND SUBDIVISION FOURTEEN OF SECTION TWO HUNDRED FIFTY-NINE-C
OF THE EXECUTIVE LAW.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.


 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD09369-01-5
