AN  ACT  to  amend the executive law, in relation to creating the multi-
  disciplinary team demonstration program

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings. The utilization of multi-disciplinary
teams  (MDTs) can be extremely valuable in the implementation of certain
programs, particularly those which  are  likely  to  have  a  widespread
impact  and affect several professions, as is the case with most systems
of mandatory reporting. MDTs make use of the experience, expertise,  and
perspectives  which  may be unique to individuals involved in one of the
affected professions. Before a program is implemented which may  have  a
broad impact, MDTs can be a valuable resource in developing an effective
strategy  that  minimizes  unintended  negative  consequences.  In  many
instances, it is appropriate for a government entity to establish an MDT
with which the entity may collaborate with and seek input from regarding
the specifics of a planned project.
  Beyond the general usefulness of MDTs, where a proposed program  which
will affect the members of many professions is to be created by statute,
it  is  often  recommended  to  also  include language providing for the
establishment of MDT to provide input on any specifics not contained  in
the statute. This inclusion ensures that the involved professions have a
chance  to be heard before a program is implemented in a way which might
adversely affect the members of  such  professions  or  the  individuals
served by the professions.
  §  2.  The  executive  law is amended by adding a new section 501-i to
read as follows:
  § 501-I. MULTI-DISCIPLINARY TEAM DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM. THE OFFICE  OF
CHILDREN  AND  FAMILY SERVICES IS HEREBY AUTHORIZED, IN CONJUNCTION WITH
THE OFFICE FOR THE AGING, TO ESTABLISH A MULTI-DISCIPLINARY TEAM  DEMON-

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