STEWART-COUSINS -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to the termination of certain executive powers; to amend chapter 23 of the laws of 2020 amending the executive law relating to issuing by the governor of any directive necessary to respond to a state disaster emergency, in relation to the effectiveness thereof; and providing for the repeal of certain provisions upon expiration thereof THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative intent. Chapter 23 of the laws of 2020 was adopted during uncertain times, during the beginning of the national awareness of the COVID-19 virus and its first detection in New York. Responding to the virus was declared a public health emergency by the US Centers for Disease Control and there was the threat of widespread tran- smission in the United States. At the time it was not known that New York State would become one of the epicenters of the pandemic, how long the pandemic would last, or the toll that it would take on the people of the state. In the face of uncertain and unprecedented times, the legis- lature enacted chapter twenty-three in order to take action to combat an unknown and unprecedented problem, and in case the governor needed addi- tional powers to deal with the quickly evolving situation. Much has been learned about the COVID-19 virus in the last year. The legislature finds that there has been progress in the fight against the virus with the approval and distribution of multiple vaccines in recent months. With increased knowledge including the means of transmission, prevention and treatment of the COVID-19 outbreak and additional time to reflect, the legislature finds and declares that the governor is adequately equipped with his previously existing emergency powers and with the authorization to continue existing directive extension and modification powers to deal with the situation. The legislature therefore declares EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
