LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION memorializing Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to
proclaim April 2015 as Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Month in the
State of New York, in conjunction with the observance of National Donate
Life Month

WHEREAS, Organ and tissue transplantation has advanced from an exper-
imental technique to a successful mode of therapy; for many, transplants
mean an improvement in the quality of life; for others they mean the
difference between life and death; and
WHEREAS, Each year the waiting list for organ transplants grows long-
er; many people die before an organ becomes available; the need for
organ donation is real and urgent; and
WHEREAS, Nationally, the current waiting list for organs has reached
more than 123,000 and thousands more need tissues; currently, in New
York State alone, 10,229 people are waiting for a transplant; more names
are added to the waiting list daily and the number of people on the
waiting list far exceeds the number of donors; and
WHEREAS, To focus attention on the importance of organ and tissue
donation and to express gratitude for those who have already given the
gift of life, it is the intent of this Legislative Body to memorialize
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim April 2015 as Organ and Tissue
Donor Awareness Month in the State of New York, in conjunction with the
observance of National Donate Life Month, which incorporates both organ
and tissue, as well as other donations; and
WHEREAS, Citizens of the State of New York have, for many years, been
encouraged to sign up to be an organ, eye, and tissue donor through the
New York State Donate Life Registry, a database of individuals who have
chosen, upon their death, to donate their organs and tissues, through
online registration, when they apply for or renew their driver's license
or non-driver identification card, or at various locations and events
held throughout the State each year; and
WHEREAS, Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Month provides the opportu-
nity to help New Yorkers learn more about organ donation, to help the
thousands of patients awaiting transplantations, and to recognize the
critical need for organ, eye, tissue, bone marrow, and blood donation;
and
WHEREAS, Many New Yorkers have set a powerful example, agreeing to
become organ and tissue donors and taking a selfless action which may
potentially save or enhance the lives of others, yet there continues to
be a shortage of vitally-needed organs and tissues and the disparity
between the number of registered donors and the number of people needing
transplants grows each year; a single person donating at the time of
their death can help as many as 50 people; and
WHEREAS, No one knows when they or a loved one may need a transplant
to survive, or tissue to repair injury or treat disease; New York State
is ranked 51st out of 52 registries; while there are over 19 million New
Yorkers, currently, 3,657,825 people are enrolled in the New York State
Donate Life Registry, which is 23.7% of the state population 18 years of
age or older; and
WHEREAS, In 2013 there were 1,670 transplants performed in New York
State; and
WHEREAS, The observance of Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Month
provides the opportunity to educate people, to encourage them to consid-
er organ and tissue donation, to add their names to the New York State
Donate Life Registry expressing their consent to donate, ensuring that
more lives are saved, and to inform their families and friends of their
decision; and

WHEREAS, Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Month is also a time to
recognize and applaud the researchers, medical professionals, advocates
and volunteers, past and present, who have contributed so much to the
advancement of organ and tissue donation and transplantation and, most
particularly, to acknowledge and express our deepest gratitude for the
extraordinary generosity and altruistic gifts of deceased and living
donors and their families, so that others may have the opportunity to
rear a family, hold a job, and pursue a fuller and more active life;
now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim April 2015 as Organ and
Tissue Donor Awareness Month in the State of New York; and be it further
RESOLVED, That copies of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of New
York, the New York Organ Donor Network, the Long Island Transplant
Recipients International Organization, and the New York Alliance for
Donation.

hereinafter  provided.  The  senators  elected  in the year one thousand

senate  shall  always  be  composed of fifty members, except that if any
county having three or more senators at the time  of  any  apportionment
shall  be  entitled  on such ratio to an additional senator or senators,
such additional senator or senators shall be given  to  such  county  in
addition  to  the fifty senators, and the whole number of senators shall
be increased to that extent.
  The senate districts, including the present ones,  as  existing  imme-
diately before the enactment of a law readjusting or altering the senate
districts,  shall continue to be the senate districts of the state until

expirations, and for the formation of assembly districts.]  ONE  SENATOR

Introduced by M. of A. PERRY, ORTIZ, McDONOUGH -- read once and referred
  to the Committee on Higher Education

AN  ACT  to  amend the education law, the limited liability company law,
  the partnership law and the public health  law,  in  relation  to  the
  practice  of  naturopathy;  and  to  amend the social services law, in
  relation to the reporting of child abuse

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

  Section  1. Legislative intent.  1. The legislature recognizes that in
spite of advances in science and technology that have  resulted  in  the
American  healthcare  system  excelling  at  triage and in responding to
acute emergent conditions, there is an epidemic of chronic  disease  and
an unacceptable degree of iatrogenic disease in America. The legislature
recognizes that the economics of healthcare and the pursuit of scientif-
ic  advancement  have led to an occupational preference among physicians
for specialization, resulting in a shortage of primary care  physicians.
The  legislature  finds that licensure of the profession of naturopathic
medicine favorably addresses such problems, and agrees with U.S.  Senate
Resolution  221  of  the  113th  Congress  in  finding that naturopathic
doctors are skilled in preventing and  treating  chronic  disease;  that
naturopathic  medicine  is  a  safe,  effective, and affordable means of
health care; and that licensure of naturopathic  doctors  helps  address
the shortage of primary care physicians in the United States, while also
providing people with more choice in health care.
  2.  The  legislature  recognizes  that naturopathic medicine, although
encompassing primary and secondary care services, including many of  the
same  diagnostic  tools and assessment techniques as the medical profes-
sion, and having certain  Hippocratic  principles  in  common  with  the
medical profession, is not part of the profession of medicine as contem-
plated by article 131 of the education law, and intends that naturopath-
ic medicine be a distinct profession with its own state board.
