AN ACT to amend the public authorities law, in relation to creating  the
  community college high-technology investment program (C-CHIP)

  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  that
significant  employment  opportunities  exist  in  growing  fields where
complex technologies require advanced skills. Access  to  modern,  effi-
cient facilities and equipment will provide students with the ability to
learn  about, develop and apply new technologies. Having access to these
modern facilities and equipment will provide students with the knowledge
and skill required for employment in the ever-expanding  high-technology
sector  or  in other sectors of the economy, including manufacturing and
service, that utilize advanced, high-technology-related  processes.  The
legislature  finds  that  it  is  proper  and essential for the state to
support efforts that will  provide  students  with  updated  and  modern
facilities  and  equipment where skills can be learned in a setting that
best matches the workplaces for which the students are  being  prepared.
The  legislature also finds and declares that a well-trained and skilled
workforce will attract businesses seeking to enhance production, modern-
ize or expand as well as start up or relocate to New York state.
  The legislature  hereby  authorizes  the  creation  of  the  community
college high-technology investment program (C-CHIP).
  §  2.  The  public  authorities law is amended by adding a new section
3154-a to read as follows:
  § 3154-A. COMMUNITY COLLEGE HIGH-TECHNOLOGY INVESTMENT PROGRAM.  1.  A
COMMUNITY COLLEGE HIGH-TECHNOLOGY INVESTMENT PROGRAM (HEREAFTER REFERRED
TO AS C-CHIP) IS HEREBY CREATED.
  2.  THE  FOUNDATION SHALL, FROM APPROPRIATIONS MADE AVAILABLE FOR THIS
PURPOSE OR FROM APPROPRIATIONS  FOR  THE  RESEARCH  DEVELOPMENT  PROGRAM

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