expenditures  as approved by the commissioner for such program year. The

Introduced  by  Sen.  AKSHAR -- read twice and ordered printed, and when

AN ACT to amend chapter 56 of the laws  of  2012,  amending  the  mental

  developmental  disabilities  and  the  office  of  mental  health,  in
  relation to delaying the closure and consolidation of facilities oper-
  ated by such offices

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

  Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as
the "freeze unsafe closures now act".
  S 2. Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds that the state
has recently announced its intent to downsize and close numerous facili-
ties  operated  by the office of mental health and the office for people
with developmental disabilities.   These  facilities  provide  inpatient
services  to  individuals  with  serious mental illness or developmental
disabilities who are very frail, who are dangerous or  violent,  or  who
are  children  and adolescents.  The stated purpose of these closures is
to achieve full community integration of the mentally ill  and  develop-
mentally  disabled  individuals residing throughout the state in accord-
ance with the Supreme Court decision in Olmstead.  Olmstead v. L.C., 527
U.S. 581 (1999),  is  a  United  States  Supreme  Court  case  regarding
discrimination  against people with mental disabilities, which held that
under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), individuals with mental
disabilities have the right to live in  the  community  rather  than  in
institutions,  if in the words of the opinion of the court, "the State's
treatment professionals have  determined  that  community  placement  is
appropriate,  the transfer from institutional care to a less restrictive
setting is not opposed by the affected individual, and the placement can
be reasonably accommodated, taking into account the resources  available
to  the  State  and  the needs of others with mental disabilities".  The
court also stated that "We emphasize that nothing  in  the  ADA  or  its
