This act shall be known and may be cited as the "New York State criminal street gang act". § 2. Legislative findings and purpose. The legislature hereby finds that preservation of public order and improvement of individual safety and security can be improved by a comprehensive, targeted, and systemic enhancement of state laws applicable to criminal street gangs and their activities in order to prevent the growth of such gangs, facilitate prosecution and punishment of their members for unlawful acts, and punish those who solicit others to participate in such gangs and in acts of gang-related violence and unlawfulness or who provide support or resources to those who commit or encourage the commission of such acts. The legislature therefore declares it to be in every sense in the public interest to establish the comprehensive approach to the protection of public order and individual safety enacted by this act that will enhance prosecution and punishment of the unlawful activities of criminal street gangs, prevent their growth and ability to recruit members, and expand effective anti-gang education and intervention activities by the state and its localities. § 3. Paragraph (g) of subdivision 2 of section 1349 of the civil prac- tice law and rules, as amended by chapter 398 of the laws of 2004, is amended to read as follows: EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
