  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

  Section  1.  The commissioner of the department of labor, in consulta-
tion with the commissioners of the office of  temporary  and  disability
assistance,  the department of health, the office of children and family
services, and the department of taxation and finance (hereinafter,  "the
commissioners"),  any other department, division, board, bureau, commis-
sion, agency or public authority of the state or any political  subdivi-
sion  thereof  deemed  necessary  by  the commissioners, shall prepare a
comprehensive study and report on the impact that the increase in  mini-
mum  wage  has  or  will  have on the eligibility of the working poor to
receive important and necessary services. Such study  shall  include  an
analysis of any effect on the eligibility of working individuals for all
programs  with  an  income  eligibility requirement and/or the potential
reduction in benefits under  such  programs,  which  may  occur  due  to
increased  wages. The study shall also examine the impact on individuals
and families near the poverty level of the loss  of  services,  programs
and  subsidies and the adequacy of increased wages to cover the costs of
such expenses.
  § 2. The commissioners shall publish such report to the governor,  the
temporary  president  of  the  senate,  the speaker of the assembly, the
minority leader of the senate, and the minority leader of the  assembly,
