          GLICK -- read once and referred to the Committee on Correction
        AN  ACT to amend the correction law, in relation to providing vocational
          training to inmates on the installation of solar hot water systems for
          the provision of hot water to correctional facilities
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
     1    Section  1.  Subdivision  4  of  section 137 of the correction law, as
     2  added by chapter 476 of the laws of 1970, is amended to read as follows:
     3    4. Whenever there shall be a sufficient number of cells or rooms in  a
     4  correctional  facility,  each  inmate  shall  be given sleeping accommo-
     5  dations in a separate cell or  room,  provided,  however,  that  nothing
     6  herein  contained  shall  be  construed  so as to limit the right of the
     7  department to utilize dormitory-type accommodations where  necessary  or
     8  where  appropriate to a program of treatment. To the extent practicable,
     9  such cells, rooms and dormitories shall be plumbed  to  provide  inmates
    10  hot water.
    11    § 2. Subdivision 2 of section 171 of the correction law, as amended by
    12  chapter 364 of the laws of 1983, is amended to read as follows:
    13    2.  Such  labor  shall  be either for the purpose of the production of
    14  supplies for said institutions, or  for  the  state,  or  any  political
    15  subdivision  thereof, or for any public institution owned or managed and
    16  controlled by the state, or any political subdivision  thereof;  or  for
    17  the  purpose  of industrial training and instruction, or partly for one,
    18  and partly for the other of such purposes.  Where  practicable,  inmates
    19  shall be provided vocational training to install solar hot water systems
    20  to  provide  hot  water  to cells, rooms and dormitories lacking in such
    21  amenity pursuant to subdivision four of section one hundred thirty-seven
    22  of this chapter.
    23    § 3. This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after
    24  it shall have become a law.
