Public Health (PBH) CHAPTER 45, ARTICLE 6, TITLE 2
§ 609. State aid; laboratories. 1. Where a laboratory shall have been
or is hereafter established pursuant to article five of this chapter,
the state, through the legislature and within the limits to be
prescribed by the commissioner, shall provide aid at a per centum,
determined in accordance with the provisions of subdivision two of
section six hundred five of this article, of the actual cost of repair,
relocation, equipment and maintenance of the laboratory or laboratories
for services associated with a core public health service, as described
in section six hundred two of this title. Such cost shall be the excess,
if any, of such expenditures over available revenues of all types,
including adequate and reasonable fees, derived from or attributable to
the performance of laboratory services.

2. Where a county or city provides or shall have provided for
laboratory service by contracting with an established laboratory for
services associated with a core public health service, as described in
subdivision three of section six hundred two of this title, with the
approval of the commissioner, it shall be entitled to state aid at a per
centum, determined in accordance with the provisions of subdivision two
of section six hundred five of this article, of the cost of the
contracts.

3. The work of all laboratories except the laboratories in the
department of health in the city of New York established or for which
aid is received in accordance with the provisions of this chapter shall
be inspected and standardized by the commissioner and no state aid shall
be given to any county or city unless the area of the district, site,
design and construction of the buildings, equipment, work and conduct of
the laboratory shall be first approved in writing, after inspection, by
the commissioner or his representative.

4. The governing body of any county or city which has established and
is maintaining a laboratory or which is providing laboratory services by
contract with another laboratory and which desires to make applications
for state aid under this title shall annually on such dates as may be
fixed by the commissioner submit the request of such county or city for
such state aid and shall support such request with such information as
the commissioner may require. The commissioner shall prescribe the form
in which such information shall be submitted.
