  Education

AN  ACT  to  amend the education law, in relation to education on celiac
  disease; and to amend the tax  law  and  the  state  finance  law,  in
  relation to the celiac disease awareness and research fund

  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  the
following:
  a. Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intes-
tine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food.
  b. Celiac disease affects people in all parts of the world. Originally
thought  to be a rare childhood syndrome, celiac disease is now known to
be a common genetic disorder.
  c. More than two million people in the United States have the disease,
or about 1 in 133 people.
  d. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein in
wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten is found mainly in foods but may also  be
found in everyday products such as medicines, vitamins and lip balms.
  e.  When people with celiac disease eat foods or use products contain-
ing gluten, their immune  system  responds  by  damaging  or  destroying
villi,  the  tiny,  fingerlike  protrusions  lining the small intestine.
Villi normally allow nutrients from food  to  be  absorbed  through  the
walls  of  the  small  intestine  into  the bloodstream. Without healthy
villi, a person becomes malnourished, no matter how much one eats.
  f. People with celiac disease may  have  no  symptoms  but  can  still
develop  complications of the disease over time. Long-term complications
include malnutrition which can lead to anemia, osteoporosis and  miscar-
riage,  among  other  problems such as liver diseases and cancers of the
intestine.

AN  ACT  to  amend the education law, in relation to education on celiac
  disease; and to amend the tax  law  and  the  state  finance  law,  in
  relation to the celiac disease awareness and research fund

  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  the
following:
  a. Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intes-
tine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food.
  b. Celiac disease affects people in all parts of the world. Originally
thought  to be a rare childhood syndrome, celiac disease is now known to
be a common genetic disorder.
  c. More than two million people in the United States have the disease,
or about 1 in 133 people.
  d. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein in
wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten is found mainly in foods but may also  be
found in everyday products such as medicines, vitamins and lip balms.
  e.  When people with celiac disease eat foods or use products contain-
ing gluten, their immune  system  responds  by  damaging  or  destroying
villi,  the  tiny,  fingerlike  protrusions  lining the small intestine.
Villi normally allow nutrients from food  to  be  absorbed  through  the
walls  of  the  small  intestine  into  the bloodstream. Without healthy
villi, a person becomes malnourished, no matter how much one eats.
  f. People with celiac disease may  have  no  symptoms  but  can  still
develop  complications of the disease over time. Long-term complications
include malnutrition which can lead to anemia, osteoporosis and  miscar-

AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to requiring  instruction
  in physical education in certain elementary and secondary schools

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative intent. (i) The legislature  hereby  finds  and
declares that the health and physical activity of its children and youth
are and have been a long-standing health objective of the state. Against
a  background  of  epidemic levels of child obesity, in which at least 1
out of 3 children is now considered overweight or obese, physical educa-
tion has become even more particularly important in the role it plays in
the state's health objectives for its children and youths.
  (ii) According to the  Centers  for  Disease  Control  and  Prevention
(CDC),  the  academic success of America's youth is strongly linked with
their health.   Furthermore, the CDC has  studied  and  documented  that
students  who  engage in sixty minutes or more of physical activity five
or more days per week do better in school. Research also indicates  that
obese  children  and  youth  have  higher  absenteeism and lower reading
proficiency scores than their non-obese peers.
  (iii) Although it may be correlation and not causation, many kids  are
spending  less time exercising and more time in front of the TV, comput-
er, or video-game console. And today's busy  families  have  fewer  free
moments  to  prepare  nutritious,  home-cooked  meals. From fast food to
electronics, quick and easy is the reality for many people  in  the  new
millennium.
  (iv)  Our  schools  are  uniquely  positioned  to  meet children's and
youth's physical activity needs. Physical education can be  the  corner-
stone  of building healthier student bodies, healthier neighborhoods and
higher achievement. This is true in  physical  education's  role  as  an
integral  part  of  a  school's  instruction,  health education classes,

Newly elected Senator Fred Akshar has introduced his first three legislative proposals, entitled the “Small Business Jobs Revitalization Package,” aimed at lowering taxes and reducing costs for small businesses to keep more local dollars within our community.

New York State is at its best when we include all New Yorkers in building our future. That’s why I applaud Governor Andrew Cuomo for setting the ambitious goal of 30% minority and women-owned business (MWBE) participation in New York State contracting, and for making the determined commitments necessary to reach that goal. The sustained outreach efforts around the LaGuardia Project serve as an example of building the capacity of the MWBE community to successfully compete for contracts.
