          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:

     1    Section  1. Subdivision 3 of section 1373 of the public health law, as
     2  amended by a chapter of the laws of 2017,  amending  the  public  health
     3  law,  relating to requiring the commissioner of health to act when areas
     4  of lead poisoning are  designated,  as  proposed  in  legislative  bills
     5  numbers S.1200-A and A.1809-A, is amended to read as follows:
     6    3.  In  the  event  of failure to comply with a notice and demand, the
     7  commissioner or his or her representative shall [conduct] take  enforce-
     8  ment  action  as  deemed  appropriate  by the commissioner or his or her
     9  representative, which may include conducting a formal hearing  upon  due
    10  notice  in  accordance  with  the provisions of section twelve-a of this
    11  chapter and on proof of violation of such notice and  demand  may  order
    12  abatement  of  a  paint  condition conducive to lead poisoning upon such
    13  terms as may be appropriate and may assess a penalty not to  exceed  two
    14  thousand  five  hundred  dollars  for such violation; provided, however,
    15  that abatement shall not be  ordered  if  the  respondent  proves  by  a
    16  preponderance  of evidence at such hearing that a paint condition condu-
    17  cive to lead poisoning in the designated dwelling does not exist.
    18    § 2. This act shall take effect on the  same  date  and  in  the  same
    19  manner as a chapter of the laws of 2017, amending the public health law,

    21  lead poisoning are designated, as proposed in legislative bills  numbers
