AN ACT to amend the county law, in relation to assignment of counsel

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

  Section  1. The closing paragraph of section 722 of the county law, as
amended by chapter 453 of the laws  of  1999,  is  amended  to  read  as
follows:
  Upon  an  appeal  in a criminal action, and on any appeal described in
section eleven hundred twenty of the family court act, article six-C  of
the  correction  law  or  section  four hundred seven of the surrogate's
court procedure act, wherein the party is financially unable  to  obtain
counsel,  the  appellate court shall assign counsel furnished in accord-
ance with the plan, conforming to  the  requirements  of  this  section,
which  is in operation in the county or in the city in which a county is
wholly contained wherein the judgment  of  conviction,  disposition,  or
order  of the trial court was entered; provided, however, that when such
county or city has not placed in operation a  plan  conforming  to  that
prescribed  in subdivision three or four of this section and such appel-
late court is satisfied that a conflict of interest prevents the assign-
ment of counsel pursuant to the plan in operation, or when  such  county
or  city  has  not  placed  in  operation  any  plan  conforming to that
prescribed in this section, such appellate court may assign any attorney
in such county or city and, in such event, such attorney  shall  receive
compensation  and  reimbursement from such county or city which shall be
at the same rate as is prescribed in section seven hundred  twenty-two-b
of  this  chapter.    ASSIGNMENT OF COUNSEL UPON AN APPEAL IN A CRIMINAL
ACTION PURSUANT TO THIS SUBDIVISION,  OR  PURSUANT  TO  PARAGRAPH  B  OF
SUBDIVISION  ONE  OF  SECTION THIRTY-FIVE OF THE JUDICIARY LAW, INCLUDES
AUTHORIZATION FOR REPRESENTATION BY APPELLATE COUNSEL,  OR  AN  ATTORNEY
SELECTED AT THE REQUEST OF APPELLATE COUNSEL BY THE ADMINISTRATOR OF THE

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