BILL NUMBER: S8044 SPONSOR: MYRIE TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to defining the term "mass shooting" for purposes of emergency response measures and access to emergency funding PURPOSE: This is a chapter amendment that makes changes to the executive law. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This amendment makes changes to the definition of mass shooting by removing language that includes individuals who are injured in a shoot- ing incident. Instead, it adopts more precise criteria, requiring at least four people to be murdered with a firearm, rifle, or shotgun. Additionally, the legislation now includes language that specifically addresses crime victim service programs under the Office of Victim Services.
