AN ACT to amend the mental hygiene law, in relation to the suspension of
  service of state-operated individualized residential alternatives

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

  Section 1. Subdivision (d) of section 13.17 of the mental hygiene law,
as added by section 1 of part Q of chapter 59 of the laws of 2016, para-
graph  1 as amended by section 1 of part II of chapter 57 of the laws of
2018, is amended to read as follows:
  (d) In the event of a closure [or], transfer, OR SUSPENSION OF SERVICE
of a state-operated individualized residential  alternative  (IRA),  the
commissioner shall:
  1. provide appropriate and timely notification to the temporary presi-
dent  of the senate, and the speaker of the assembly, and to appropriate
representatives of impacted labor organizations.  Such  notification  to
the  representatives  of  impacted  labor organizations shall be made as
soon as practicable, but no less than ninety days prior to such  closure
[or],  transfer,  OR SUSPENSION OF SERVICE except in the case of exigent
circumstances impacting the health, safety, or welfare of the  residents
of  the IRA as determined by the office. Provided, however, that nothing
herein shall limit the ability of the office to effectuate such  closure
[or], transfer, OR SUSPENSION OF SERVICE; and
  2.  make  reasonable efforts to confer with the affected workforce and
any other party he or she deems  appropriate  to  inform  such  affected
workforce,  the  residents  of  the IRA, and their family members, where
appropriate, of the proposed closure [or], transfer,  OR  SUSPENSION  OF
SERVICE plan.
  §  2.  This act shall take effect immediately; provided, however, that
the amendments to subdivision (d) of section 13.17 of the mental hygiene
law made by section one of this act shall not affect the repeal of  such
subdivision and shall be deemed repealed therewith.
