   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1.  Legislative intent.  The legislature hereby finds that in
 order to improve the economic opportunities for its citizens and  entre-
 preneurs,  it  must  use  the established capabilities of its university
 systems to offer space and resources to  the  next  generation  of  food
 manufacturing businesses.
   It has been documented that the chief obstacle for start-up food manu-
 facturing  businesses is their inability to access affordable commercial
 kitchen space. Currently all over the state, there are only a few kitch-
 en incubators facing high demand and unable to meet  the  needs  of  the
 many potential start-up businesses.
   Kitchen  incubators  are  valuable  resources for New York state as it
 moves  to  promote  more  job  development,  business  development   and
 increased tax revenues.
   In  New York City alone, there are more than 900 food firms, with over
 16,000 employees and another 2,500 who are self-employed. This has  been
 viewed  as  evidence  of  entrepreneurs' intent on developing their food
 manufacturing ideas into full scale production  capabilities  and  fully
 functional business entities.
   Minority  and immigrant populations are growing significantly through-
 out the state and so are their number  in  entrepreneurship  activities,
