AN ACT to amend the executive law, in  relation  to  direct  dialing  to
  public service answering points

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

  Section 1. Subdivisions 3 and 4 of section 717-a of the executive law,
as added by a chapter of the laws of 2019, amending  the  executive  law
relating  to  direct  dialing  to  public  service  answering points, as
proposed in legislative bills numbers S. 4756 and A. 458, are amended to
read as follows:
  3. All public buildings which operate on a multi-line telephone system
in this state must configure their multi-line telephone system  hardware
to  allow  any  call  to 911 on the system to be directly connected to a
public service answering point; PROVIDED HOWEVER, THAT IN  THE  CASE  OF
PUBLIC  BUILDINGS  GOVERNED  BY  SECTION THREE HUNDRED FIFTY-FIVE OR SIX
THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED FOUR OF THE  EDUCATION  LAW  WHICH  HAVE  ON-CAMPUS
EMERGENCY  ANSWERING  POINTS,  SUCH  PUBLIC BUILDINGS MAY ROUTE SUCH 911
CALLS TO THEIR ON-CAMPUS ANSWERING POINTS.
  4. The requirements of subdivision three of  this  section  shall  not
apply  to any public building operating on a multi-line telephone system
that would be required  to  upgrade  the  hardware  of  their  telephone
network to meet said requirement. However, every telephone in any exempt
public  building  operating on a multi-line telephone system shall place
an instructional sticker on or immediately adjacent  to  each  telephone
informing  users  of  the phone's inability to directly dial 911 and the
procedures to follow to connect to a 911 public service answering point,
OR IN THE CASE OF PUBLIC BUILDINGS GOVERNED  BY  SECTION  THREE  HUNDRED
FIFTY-FIVE  OR  SIX THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED FOUR OF THE EDUCATION LAW WHICH
HAVE ON-CAMPUS EMERGENCY  ANSWERING  POINTS,  SUCH  ON-CAMPUS  ANSWERING
POINTS, in case of an emergency.
  §  2.  This  act  shall  take  effect on the same date and in the same
manner as a chapter of the laws of  2019,  amending  the  executive  law
relating  to  direct  dialing  to  public  service  answering points, as
proposed in legislative bills numbers S. 4756 and A. 458, takes effect.
