 AN ACT to amend the social services law, in relation to the provision of
   child care by local public welfare officials
 
   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1.   Subdivision 1 of section 410 of the social services law,
 as added by chapter 395 of the laws of  1965,  is  amended  to  read  as
 follows:
   1.  A public welfare official of a county, city or town is authorized,
 provided funds have been made available therefor, to provide day care at
 public expense for children residing in his OR  HER  territory  who  are
 eligible  therefor  pursuant to provisions of this title.  Such care may
 be provided only in cases where it is determined, under criteria  estab-
 lished  by  the  department,  that  there is a need [therefor because of
 inability of the parents to provide care and supervision for a  substan-
 tial  part of the day] and that such care is in the best interest of the
 child and parent; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT THE  PUBLIC  WELFARE  OFFICIAL
 SHALL  NOT  BE REQUIRED TO LIMIT AUTHORIZED CHILD CARE SERVICES STRICTLY
 BASED ON THE WORK, TRAINING, OR EDUCATIONAL SCHEDULE OF THE  PARENTS  OR
 THE  NUMBER OF HOURS THE PARENTS SPEND IN WORK, TRAINING, OR EDUCATIONAL
 ACTIVITIES. Where the family is able to pay part or all of the costs  of
 such  care,  payment  of  such fees as may be reasonable in the light of
 such ability shall be required.
   § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
