AN ACT to establish a temporary state commission to  study  child  abuse
  prevention  and  make  recommendations for the implementation of child
  abuse prevention programs across the  state;  and  providing  for  the
  repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature  hereby  acknowledges
that child abuse is a continuing societal problem in the state affecting
at  least  80,000  children  each  year. In recent years, there has been
research on the long-term effects of child abuse on  the  individual  as
well as society. The vast majority of research has demonstrated that the
consequences  of  child  abuse  are grave, damaging and often spill over
into a person's adult life. Adverse  effects  have  been  identified  in
maltreated children's physical, cognitive, emotional and social develop-
ment.
  Furthermore,  the  legislature finds that the failure to address child
abuse through preventive measures not only harms a million children each
year in this country, it imposes a tremendous cost to society. Like most
states, New York spends  a  considerable  amount  of  fiscal  and  human
resources  to  treat  the  numerous  consequences  of  child  abuse  and
maltreatment. The failure to invest in prevention results in  a  signif-
icantly greater amount of resources needed to treat the outcomes.
  S  2.  A temporary state commission, to be known as the "commission of
child abuse prevention", is hereby established to examine, evaluate  and
make  recommendations  concerning  child abuse prevention efforts in the
state. The commission shall consider the need for additional legislation
as well as a  stable  source  of  funding  for  child  abuse  prevention
programs.  Specific  issues  to  be  addressed  by  the commission shall
