Introduced by Sens. SAVINO, RAMOS -- read twice and ordered printed, and
  when printed to be committed to the Committee on Labor

AN  ACT to amend the labor law and the state finance law, in relation to
  requiring  the  licensing  of   persons   engaged   in   the   design,
  construction,  inspection,  maintenance,  alteration,  and  repair  of
  elevators and other automated people moving devices (Part A);  and  to
  amend  the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to
  the licensing of approved elevator agency directors,  inspectors,  and
  technicians  performing  elevator work in the city of New York; and to
  repeal the definition of private elevator inspection agency in section
  28-401.3 of the administrative code of the city of New York (Part B)

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

  Section 1. This act enacts into law legislation providing for elevator
safety.  Each  component is wholly contained within a Part identified as
Parts A through B. The effective  date  for  each  particular  provision
contained  within  such  Part  is  set forth in the last section of such
Part. Any provision in any section contained within  a  Part,  including
the  effective  date of the Part, which makes reference to a section "of
this act", when used in connection with that particular component, shall
be deemed to mean and refer to the corresponding section of the Part  in
which  it  is  found.  Section  four  of this act sets forth the general
effective date of this act.
  § 2. Legislative findings  and  declaration.  The  legislature  hereby
finds that the use of unsafe and defective elevators and other automated
people moving conveyances may expose the public to unsafe conditions and
increase the risk of injury. The legislature finds that improper design,
construction,  maintenance and repair of such conveyances is preventable
by requiring proper training of persons  employed  to  perform  work  on
elevators and other automated people moving conveyances and by requiring
the  licensing  of  contractors  and  the  certification  of individuals

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