A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring the department of consumer and worker protection to implement an outreach and education campaign on facilities that deceptively advertise or are otherwise misleading when offering reproductive health services

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subdivision b of section 3-119.6 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by a local law of the city of New York for the year 2022, relating to a public information and outreach campaign regarding safe access to reproductive health care, as proposed in introduction number 474-A for the year 2022, is amended by adding a new paragraph 8 to read as follows:

(8) (a) Facilities that deceptively advertise or are otherwise misleading when offering reproductive health services, including information related to: (i) services such facilities do and do not typically provide; (ii) how such facilities typically depict their services to the public; (iii) the effect such facilities have on timely and safe access to pregnancy related services; (iv) how to make a complaint regarding deceptive behaviors by such facilities.

(b) The information required by this paragraph shall be made available to the public and may be updated as necessary with relevant findings by the state of New York and organizations dedicated to providing comprehensive reproductive health services; and

§ 2. This local law takes effect on the same date that a local law amending the administrative code of the city of New York, relating to a public information and outreach campaign regarding safe access to reproductive health care, as proposed in introduction number 474-A for the year 2022, takes effect.
