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

  Section 1. Subdivision 3 of section 4173 of the public health law,  as
amended  by  chapter  293  of  the  laws  of 2019, is amended to read as
follows:
  3. (a) [The] EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN  PARAGRAPH  (B)  OF  THIS
SUBDIVISION, THE registrar shall be entitled to a fee of ten dollars for
each  certification  of  birth  or  death  or for each certified copy or
certified transcript of any record of a birth or of a  death  or  for  a
certification  that  a  search  discloses  no  record of a birth or of a
death, furnished by him to an applicant, except that  no  fee  shall  be
charged  for a search, certification of birth or death or certified copy
or certified transcript of a birth or a death  record  to  be  used  for
school entrance, employment certificate or for purposes of public relief
or  government  compensation  or  when required by the veterans adminis-
tration to be used in determining  the  eligibility  of  any  person  to
participate  in  the  benefits  made  available by the veterans adminis-
tration, provided, however, that if such registrar is a city clerk, town
clerk or village clerk, he shall collect such fees for and on behalf  of
the city, town or village in which he serves, provided, however, that an
amount equivalent to the sum of such fees shall be paid at least monthly
by  such city, town or village to such city clerk, town clerk or village
clerk entitled to receive fees as a registrar of vital statistics.
