AN ACT to amend the civil practice law and rules,  the  penal  law,  the

  offenses involving criminal street gangs, creating the criminal street

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

  Section 1.  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
