  Section 1. The office of temporary  and  disability  assistance  shall
conduct  a  homelessness  study.  Such  study  shall include, but not be
limited to:
  1.  the  adequacy  of  the  current  shelter  allowance  and  eviction
prevention  supplements,  in light of increasing costs for housing, fuel

  2. whether the inadequacy of the shelter allowance and allowances  for
fuel  and utilities is contributing to evictions, overcrowding and home-
lessness;

fuel  and utilities is constraining the ability of the private sector to
provide safe and affordable housing to low-income New Yorkers;
  4. whether the requirement that a family be sued for  eviction  before
they can access a rent supplement program is reasonable considering that
it  imposes  litigation  costs on landlords who are providing affordable
housing, increases state and local costs for court administration leaves
tenants with negative credit that may  inhibit  their  ability  to  find
employment  and  secure  housing in the near term and future, and limits
the program to others in need including those who  are  forced  to  move
because of domestic violence;

  Section  1.  Short  title.  This  act shall be known as the "emergency

  S 2. Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds  and  declares
that  citizens  of  the state of New York are not properly equipped with
the requisite supplies needed in the event of a disaster or other  emer-
gency.    The legislature further declares that the impacts of disasters
are mitigated when individuals have the  proper  emergency  preparedness
supplies  they  need  to be self sufficient during a disaster, and those
individuals are less likely to require state and local assistance during
a disaster or other emergency.
  The legislature further declares that a tax free  period  for  certain
emergency preparedness items and prefabricated go-bags shall provide the
needed  incentive for individuals to purchase proper supplies and equip-
ment to be used in the event of a disaster or other emergency.
  Therefore, the legislature declares the month of September to be emer-
gency preparedness month in the state of New York.
  S 3. Section 1115 of the tax law is amended by adding two new subdivi-
sions (jj) and (kk) to read as follows:
