AN  ACT  to  amend  the  executive  law,  in  relation  to requiring the
  collection of certain demographic information by certain  state  agen-
  cies, boards and commissions

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

  Section 1.  Legislative  intent.  The  legislature  hereby  finds  and
declares the following:
  (a)  Asian  Americans  as  well  as Native Hawaiians and other Pacific
Islanders are an incredibly diverse group. Due to  this  diversity,  the
United  States  Office  of  Management  and  Budget's Statistical Policy
Directive No. 15, entitled Race and Ethnic Standards for Federal Statis-
tics and Administrative Reporting,  separated  the  "Asian  and  Pacific
Islander" category into two distinct and separate categories, now called
"Asians"  and  "Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders," and these
two distinct categories were used in the 2000 United States Census.  The
United States Census Bureau currently reports  data  for  more  than  20
different ethnicities within these two categories.
  (b) While Asian Americans as well as Native Hawaiians and other Pacif-
ic  Islanders  are often misrepresented as a homogeneous group, they are
an extremely diverse group, with  ethnicities  from  over  30  different
countries.  Although Asian American as well as Native Hawaiian and other
Pacific Islander  communities  in  this  state  share  geographical  and
cultural  commonalities,  they  also  experience  diverse social, educa-
tional, health, and  economic  differences  that  are  unique  to  their
respective communities.
  (c) Existing state law requires state demographic data to be collected
for  Asian  and some Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander ethnic groups.
