 AN ACT to amend the state finance law, in  relation  to  evaluating  the
   effects  adjustments  or  reductions  to the state budget will have on
   reducing child poverty in New  York  state;  to  establish  the  child
   poverty  reduction advisory council to effectuate a reduction in child
   poverty in the state; and providing for the repeal of such  provisions

   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Legislative Findings. The Legislature hereby declares  that
 New York shall reduce the overall child poverty rate by fifty percent in
 the  next ten years. Nearly 3 million New Yorkers are living in poverty,
 895,000 of which are children. In fact, 1 in 5 New York children  strug-
 gle  to  meet basic needs, and although several efforts have been under-
 taken, the overall poverty  rate  in  New  York  has  failed  to  see  a
 reduction  over  the  last  decade.  Meanwhile,  the  federal government
 continues to slash those benefits that have been shown to have  positive
 impacts  on  lifting  children  and  their  families out of poverty. The
 Legislature finds that reducing child poverty will  protect  the  health
 and  general  wellbeing of all New Yorkers and lead to long term savings
 for New York's budget. To effectuate this reduction, the  child  poverty
 reduction  advisory  council  shall  be  established  to research policy
 ideas, develop best practices, and continually monitor  relevant  bench-
 marks  to  ensure  that  New York remains on pace to successfully reduce
 child poverty by fifty percent in ten years.
   § 2. Subdivision 7 of section 23 of the state finance law  is  amended
 by adding a new paragraph g to read as follows:
   G. PRIOR TO MAKING ANY SUCH ADJUSTMENT OR REDUCTION AUTHORIZED BY THIS
 SUBDIVISION  THE  DIRECTOR OF THE BUDGET SHALL EVALUATE THE EFFECTS THAT
