A03451 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A3451B
 
SPONSOR: Solages
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation to allowances for the costs of diapers   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill creates an allowance for eligible parents to receive a quar- terly allowance to assist in the purchasing of diapers for their chil- dren two years and under.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 would amend section 350 of the social services law by adding a new paragraph (c): In accordance with the regulations of the department approved by the director of the budget, allowances granted under the provisions of this title may include the costs of diapers for an eligi- ble child, two years of age or younger. Said allowances shall not exceed eighty dollars every three months, per eligible child. Section 2 sets forth the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Children under the age of two require frequent diaper changes, which can become financially challenging for low-income parents. Frequent diaper changes are also necessary to prevent diaper rash, which if left untreated, could lead to other health issues for the baby. Helping parents gain an adequate supply of diapers will assist in avoiding further health issues for their children. The bill would provide eligi- ble parents with an allowance to purchase diapers. Every three months, parents of children aged two years and younger will be eligible to receive up to eighty dollars, which will assist those who have trouble affording diapers.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2021: S. 63 passed Senate, died in Assembly. 2020: S1086-B reported to Senate Finance 2019: S.1086-B passed Senate, died in Assembly 2017 - 2018: S.1318/A.5793 - referred to Senate Children and Families 2016 - 2017: Referred to Senate Children and Families   FISCAL IMPLICATION TO STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: On the first of April next succeeding the date on which it shall have become law.
