A00775 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A775B
 
SPONSOR: Jaffee (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation to parents and caretakers who work a late shift   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The purpose of this bill is to provide for parents and caretakers who are otherwise eligible, a child care subsidy when care is necessary to enable them to get an adequate night's rest.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Amends Section 410-W of the social services law to allow parents and caretakers who are otherwise eligible for a child care subsidy to receive a subsidy when care is necessary to enable them to sleep (for eight hours) because they work a late shift and have a child who is under the age of six and not in school for a full day. Section two of the bill would set an effective date of April 1, 2016.   JUSTIFICATION: Parents who work nights often need child care so that they can sleep during the day if their children are young and not in school. Regu- lations currently permit, but do not require social services districts to provide a child care subsidy to financially eligible parents and caretakers who work second or third shifts and need child care for their young children in order to sleep. Most social services districts (47) do exercise this option and provide subsidized daytime child care for parents who need to sleep. For those living in the eleven social services districts that do not provide this option, life can be very difficult as sleep deprived patents juggle their need to sleep with caring for a young child. This bill will assure that low income parents with young children who work the night shift and need child care to get adequate sleep will be able to do so regardless of where they live.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 03/21/11 referred to children and families 01/04/12 referred to children and families 05/15/12 reported referred to ways and means 03/13/13 reported referred to ways and means 01/08/14 referred to children and families 05/15/15 passed Assembly   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: Undetermined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: April 1, 2017
