AN ACT to amend the state technology law,  in  relation  to  encouraging
  public-private partnerships to help spread broadband deployment

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

  Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as
the "connect New York act".
  § 2. Statement of legislative findings. The legislature finds that the
deployment  and  adoption  of broadband service has resulted in enhanced
economic development and public  safety  for  the  state's  communities,
improved health care and educational opportunities, and a better quality
of  life  for the residents of the state. Further, continued progress in
the deployment and adoption of broadband and other advanced telecommuni-
cations and information technology services is vital  to  ensuring  that
the  state  remains competitive and continues to create business and job
growth. The legislature finds that the state must encourage and  support
the  partnership  of  the  public  and  private sectors in the continued
growth of broadband services for the state's residents and businesses.
  § 3. Section 104 of the state technology  law  is  amended  by  adding

SPREAD ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE AND RELIABLE  BROADBAND  SERVICE;  ACHIEVING
IMPROVED   TECHNOLOGY   LITERACY,   INCREASED  COMPUTER  OWNERSHIP,  AND
INCREASED BROADBAND USE AMONG STATE RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES; ESTABLISH-
ING AND EMPOWERING LOCAL GRASSROOTS TECHNOLOGY TEAMS IN EACH  REGION  OF
THE  STATE TO PLAN FOR IMPROVED TECHNOLOGY USE ACROSS MULTIPLE COMMUNITY
SECTORS; AND ESTABLISHING AND SUSTAINING AN ENVIRONMENT RIPE FOR  BROAD-
