 AN  ACT  to  amend  the  public  health law, in relation to enacting the
   "public university emergency contraception education act"

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1.    Legislative  findings and intent. The legislature finds
 that access to emergency contraception  is  a  basic  measure  that  can
 prevent  college students from having an unwanted pregnancy. The federal
 Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of  emergency  contra-
 ception  as safe and effective in the prevention of pregnancy. Emergency
 contraception has been found to have no effect on an  established  preg-
 nancy.  Medical  research  strongly  indicates that the sooner emergency
 contraception is administered, the better the chance  of  preventing  an
 unwanted  pregnancy.  Therefore, the legislature deems it essential that
 each college and university of the state university of New York and  the
 city  university of New York provide information on emergency contracep-
 tion to its students and makes it available to any student who seeks  it
 whenever  practicable  and in accordance with applicable law and profes-
 sional standards of practice.
   § 2. Short title. This act shall be known and  may  be  cited  as  the
 "public university emergency contraception education act".
   §  3. Subdivision 1 of section 207 of the public health law is amended
 by adding a new paragraph (p) to read as follows:
   (P) A STATEWIDE EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION COLLEGE EDUCATION  AND  AWARE-
 NESS  PROGRAM.  FOR THE PURPOSE OF THIS PARAGRAPH, "EMERGENCY CONTRACEP-
 TION" SHALL MEAN ONE OR MORE PRESCRIPTION DRUGS, USED SEPARATELY  OR  IN
 COMBINATION,  IN  A DOSAGE AND MANNER FOR PREVENTING PREGNANCY WHEN USED
 AFTER INTERCOURSE, FOUND SAFE AND EFFECTIVE FOR THAT USE BY  THE  UNITED
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                            LBD10174-01-1
