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

  Section  1.  Subdivision  1  of  section  631 of the executive law, as
amended by section 22 of part A-1 of chapter 56 of the laws of 2010,  is
amended to read as follows:
  1. No award shall be made unless the office finds that (a) a crime was
committed,  (b) such crime directly resulted in personal physical injury
to or the exacerbation of a preexisting  disability,  or  condition,  or
death  of, the victim, and (c) criminal justice agency records show that
such crime was promptly reported to the proper authorities;  and  in  no
case may an award be made where the criminal justice agency records show
that  such  report  was  made more than one week after the occurrence of
such crime unless the office, for good cause shown, finds the  delay  to

procedure law, the criminal justice agency  report  need  only  be  made
within  a  reasonable  time considering all the circumstances, including
the victim's physical, emotional and mental condition and  family  situ-
ation.  For  the purposes of this subdivision, "criminal justice agency"
shall include, but not be limited to, a police  department,  a  district
attorney's office, and any other governmental agency having responsibil-
ity  for  the  enforcement  of  the criminal laws of the state provided,
