BILL NUMBER:A6884

TITLE OF BILL:  An act authorizing and directing the boards of
trustees of SUNY and CUNY to review and revise the report of the New
York State Governor's Task Force on Campus Fire Safety issued in July
2000

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

The purpose of this bill is to direct the board of trustees of the
state university of New York and the board of trustees of the city
university of New York to review the report on campus fire safety
produced in July 2000 and to update sections pertaining to the extent
and adequacy of fire suppression and detection systems within the
state and university systems.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

None.

JUSTIFICATION:

The New York State Governor's Task Force on Campus Fire Safety report
incorporated short-term steps and long-terms steps for addressing the
fire safety issues examined by the task force. The task force came to
conclusions pertaining to fire suppression and detection systems on
campus residential structures that stated that all newly-constructed
college residential structures should be equipped with a full
sprinkler system and that a phased retrofit program should be
established to install sprinkler systems in all areas of existing
campus residential structures during significant rehabilitation. This
new legislation would allow the boards of trustees to review the
report and attain information on whether the steps and recommendations
such as the one stated above were followed.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.
