AN ACT to amend the New York state urban development corporation act, in
  relation to evaluation and assistance to increase access to child care

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

  Section 1. Section 1 of chapter 174 of the laws of 1968,  constituting
the  New  York  state  urban  development corporation act, is amended by
adding a new section 54 to read as follows:
  § 54. EVALUATION AND ASSISTANCE TO INCREASE ACCESS TO CHILD CARE.  (1)
THE LEGISLATURE HEREBY FINDS THAT ACCESS TO QUALITY  CHILD  CARE  IS  AN
IMPORTANT  ELEMENT OF THE STATE'S ECONOMY FOR WORKING FAMILIES, AND THAT
CHILD CARE PROVIDERS COMPRISE A LARGE SECTOR IN NEW YORK STATE'S  ECONO-
MY.  THE  LEGISLATURE FURTHER FINDS THAT THE POTENTIAL FOR FUTURE GROWTH
IN THE STATE IS OFTEN LINKED TO THE NEXT GENERATION'S ACHIEVEMENTS.  THE
ABILITY TO OBTAIN SUCH ACHIEVEMENTS ARE STRENGTHENED BY THE AVAILABILITY
AND ADEQUACY OF EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION. THE LEGISLATURE DECLARES THAT
IT  IS  CRUCIAL  FOR  THE  GOVERNOR  AND LEGISLATURE TO OBTAIN RELIABLE,
OBJECTIVE INFORMATION ABOUT THE ECONOMIC BENEFITS OF INVESTING IN  CHILD
CARE  PROGRAMS,  SPECIFICALLY IN LOW-INCOME NEIGHBORHOODS WITH PERVASIVE
POVERTY AND HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT RATES.
  (2) FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS SECTION:
  (A) "ECONOMICALLY DISTRESSED AREAS" SHALL MEAN AREAS AS DETERMINED  BY
THE  CORPORATION  MEETING  CRITERIA  INDICATIVE  OF  ECONOMIC  DISTRESS,
INCLUDING HIGH  UNEMPLOYMENT  RATE;  HIGH  RATE  OF  EMPLOYMENT  CHANGE;
PERCENTAGES AND NUMBERS OF LOW-INCOME PERSONS; PER CAPITA INCOME AND PER
CAPITA  REAL  PROPERTY  WEALTH; AND SUCH OTHER INDICATORS OF DISTRESS AS
THE CORPORATION  SHALL  DETERMINE.  ECONOMICALLY  DISTRESSED  AREAS  MAY
INCLUDE  CITIES,  MUNICIPALITIES,  BLOCK  NUMBERING  AREAS,  AND  CENSUS
TRACTS.

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