BILL NUMBER: A85
 
SPONSOR: Cahill (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation to the full takeover by the state of New York of county safety net costs   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To require the State of New York to assume the full cost of the safety net program   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill adds subdivision 18 to Section 153 of the social services law to require the commissioner of the office of temporary and disability assistance to provide additional enhanced reimbursement for the adminis- tration of safety net assistance to every social services district throughout the state.
