S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 4928 2019-2020 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E March 29, 2019 ___________ Introduced by Sen. RIVERA -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Health AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation to establishing the asthma prevention and education program THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings and purpose. The legislature finds that asthma is a chronic, potentially life-threatening, respiratory illness that affects over a million New Yorkers, including many thou- sands of children and adolescents. Asthma is the leading cause of school absences attributed to chronic conditions. Asthma is also directly linked to large and growing inpatient bills for medicaid and other health care payers. Therefore, the legislature finds that establishing a comprehensive statewide asthma prevention management and control program which coordinates the efforts of individuals, families, health care providers, schools and community-based organizations is in the public interest and would benefit the people of the state of New York. § 2. The public health law is amended by adding a new article 27-BB to read as follows: ARTICLE 27-BB ASTHMA DISEASE MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL SECTION 2725.
