 AN ACT to establish a  bipartisan  committee  to  investigate  and  make
   recommendations as to whether Governor Andrew Cuomo committed acts for
   which  impeachment is warranted with respect to certain actions relat-
   ing to the admission  of  COVID-19  patients  to  nursing  homes;  and
   providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. (a) No later than fifteen days after the effective date  of
 this  act,  a  bipartisan  committee  shall be formed for the purpose of
 determining if Governor Andrew Cuomo committed acts for  which  impeach-
 ment is warranted:
   (i) in the issuance of a mandate forcing nursing homes in the state to
 admit COVID-19 positive patients during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic;
   (ii)  in failing to disclose accurate data on nursing home deaths in a
 timely manner to the Legislature, watchdog groups, the US Department  of
 Justice, and the public;
   (iii) in surreptitiously inserting into the  2020-2021 budget language
 that  gave legal immunity to hospital  executives and for-profit nursing
 homes at the request of lobbyists and  donors to his campaign committee;
   (iv) in threatening a legislator or  legislators  who    question  the
 governor's  handling of nursing homes and lack of  transparency on nurs-
 ing home fatality data; or
   (v) in demanding that a legislator or legislators    publicly  corrob-
 orate  all  or part of the governor's claims about the US  Department of
 Justice investigation into nursing home fatalities.
   (b) The committee shall be comprised of eleven members of the assembly
 to be appointed as follows:
   (i) 8 members to be selected by the speaker of the assembly; and
   (ii) 3 members to be selected by the minority leader of the assembly.
