Senator Joe Griffo said the Senate has passed sweeping legislation that will transform how New Yorkers with special needs and disabilities are protected.  The bill is part of a three-way agreement between the Senate, Assembly and Governor Cuomo to establish the strongest standards and practices in the nation for protecting
individuals in state operated, certified or licensed facilities and programs.  The bill strengthens and standardizes the safeguards for vulnerable children and adults who receive care from New York's human services agencies and programs.  It also creates a Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs, a new entity that would improve the state's response to allegations of abuse and neglect for individuals served in
both residential and non-residential facilities.  The bill has been sent to the Assembly.
