     7  dures  which federal law and regulation require for hospitals to qualify

    14  the council only upon the recommendation of the  commissioner.  For  the
    15  purposes  of  ensuring  that  the  health and safety of the residents of
    16  hospitals are not endangered, the council may promulgate changes in  the
    17  minimum  acceptable  standards  and  procedures  referred to herein upon
    18  recommendation of the commissioner.  Provided, however, the commissioner
    19  shall promulgate regulations requiring that the addition  of,  decertif-
    20  ication  of,  or changes in the method of delivery of perinatal services
    21  by a general hospital shall be subject  to  an  application  under  this
    22  article that requires review and approval by the council, and
    23    § 2.  This act shall take effect immediately.
