A01247 Memo:

BILL NUMBER:A1247A

TITLE  OF  BILL:    An  act  in  relation  to enacting the "non-profit
homeland security preparedness study"; and providing for the repeal of
such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL: This bill  would  commission  the
New York State Office of Homeland Security (AOHS@) to study and report
on  the  security needs of non-profit institutions facing an increased
threat of terrorist attack.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one describes  the  impact  of
increased  post-9/11  homeland  security  preparedness  on the state's
non-profit and cultural  institutions.  Section  two  directs  OHS  to
study,  evaluate  and make recommendations in writing to the Governor,
the temporary president of the Senate, and the speaker of the Assembly
by  March  31,  2010  regarding  the  security  needs  of   non-profit
institutions  facing  an  increased  risk  of  terrorist  attack,  the
universe of federal and state financial  and  non-financial  resources
available  to assist those non-profit institutions in protecting their
facilities and users of their services, and any other  strategies  for
improving  security  and protecting not-for-profit institutions facing
an increased risk of terrorist attack. Section three provides that the
act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION: New York State is home to hundreds, if  not  thousands,
of  non-profit  cultural, religious and educational institutions which
are terrorist targets. These institutions selflessly serve  the  needs
of  millions  of New Yorkers. Many institutions lack the resources and
expertise to adequately protect themselves and those they serve.  This
legislation  will effect a careful examination and analysis of federal
and state financial and non-financial resources  available  to  assist
those  non-profit  institutions,  and  hopefully  result  in  improved
strategies for improving security  and  protecting  such  institutions
from terrorist attack.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
