S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 5803 2017-2018 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E May 1, 2017 ___________ Introduced by Sens. LANZA, AVELLA -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Children and Families 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.
