 Introduced  by  Sen.  BIAGGI -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
   printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules
 AN ACT to amend the labor law in relation to removing certain provisions
   relating to covered airport workers; and in relation to  minimum  wage
   rates for covered airport workers; to repeal certain provisions of the
   labor  law  relating thereto; and to repeal section 14 of a chapter of
   the laws of 2020 amending the  labor  law  relating  to  enacting  the
   "healthy  terminals  act",  as  proposed  in legislative bills numbers
   S.6266-D and A.8142-E relating thereto
   Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature finds that
 the  airports  of  John  F.  Kennedy International Airport and LaGuardia
 Airport operating under the jurisdiction of the Port  Authority  of  New
 York  and New Jersey are some of the most heavily trafficked transporta-
 tion centers in the world, and are vital not just to the economic health
 of the state but to the world. The legislature further  determines  that
 there is a unique public interest in the operation of the airline indus-
 try  with  the  critical  role  of  airport  workers during the COVID-19
 pandemic, where airport workers  have  been  placed  into  contact  with
 members of the public in an often uncontrolled manner. Due to such find-
 ings,  the  legislature  hereby  declares that the access to health care
 provided in this bill is intended to provide a health care benefit  that
 ensures  the  health  and  safety of workers employed at John F. Kennedy
 International Airport and LaGuardia Airport is protected.
   § 2. The article heading of article 9 of the labor law, as amended  by
 a  chapter of the laws of 2020 amending the labor law relating to enact-
 ing the "healthy  terminals  act",  as  proposed  in  legislative  bills
 numbers S.6266-D and A.8142-E, is amended to read as follows:
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
