 AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation to enacting the model
   overdose mapping and response act
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1.  Short title. This act shall be known and may be  cited  as
 the "model overdose mapping and response act".
   §  2.  Legislative  findings  and  purpose. The legislature finds that
 substance use disorder and drug overdose is a major health problem  that
 affects    the lives of many people, multiple service systems, and leads
 to profound consequences including permanent injury or death. Accidental
 overdoses  caused  by  heroin,  fentanyl,  other  opiates,   stimulants,
 controlled  substance  analogs, novel psychoactive substances, and other
 legal or illegal drugs are a national security crisis  that  stress  and
 strain  the  financial,  public  health,  health care, and public safety
 resources in New York state.  This  impact  is  because  there  are  few
 central databases that can quickly help identify this problem and limit-
 ed funding for support to mitigate the crisis and risks statewide. There
 is  a  need for collaboration among local, regional, and state agencies,
 service systems, program offices within New York state, and other  part-
 ners  such  as  federal  agencies  to  establish  a comprehensive system
 addressing the problems associated with overdoses and to reduce duplica-
 tive requirements across local, county, state, public safety, and health
 care agencies.    Formalized  collaboration  allows  these  entities  to
 combine  their  numerous  resources and strengths, thus reducing insular
 decision-making.  Contemporaneous  data  collection  about,  and  public
