NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A9709
 
SPONSOR: O'Donnell
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to authorizing the commissioner of health to make grants to be used for the costs of conducting a local blood donation drive   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Provides grants to encourage community blood drives.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Amends Public Health Law § 3100 to allow the Health Commissioner to make grants, within amounts appropriated, to not-for-profit organizations and elementary, secondary and postsecondary schools to help pay for the costs of conducting a local blood donation drive. Section 2. Sets forth the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: This bill would create a program of grants to help community groups and schools run blood drives. When community organizations or schools conduct blood drives, the blood bank generally pays for the cost of the blood collection itself. But the blood banks do not pay for promotional activities such as mailings to an organization's members, or the cost of the space if this cost exists.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2013-14:A.4468/S.3190 2011-12:A.2155/S.1179 2009-10:A.2358/S.6103 2007-08:A.4608 2005-06:A.5494 2004-05:A.6746   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Grants would be determined by annual appropriation.   EFFECTIVE DATE: : This act shall take effect immediately.
