A05525 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A5525
 
SPONSOR: Brabenec (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the civil service law, in relation to increasing civil service credits given to veterans currently returning from service   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Increases civil service credits given to veterans currently returning from service.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 2 of section 85 of the civil service law is amended by adding two new subparagraphs 3 and 4 to enti- tle veterans who are honorable discharged on or after January 1, 2012 to 10 points additional credits in a competitive exam for original appoint- ment and five points additional credit in a competitive examination for promotion. Disabled veterans who are honorable discharged on or after January 1, 2012 shall be entitled to receive 15 points additional credit in a competitive examination for original appointment and 10 points additional credit in a competitive exam for promotion.   DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORIGINAL AND AMENDED VERSION (IF APPLICABLE): Click here to enter text.   JUSTIFICATION: With, roughly 100,000 veterans being discharged from the military in the very near future it is imperative that New York State goes above and beyond to help those veterans who live in the state with obtaining employment. This bill would increase civil service credits that veterans are entitled to in a competitive civil service exam for original appointment to ten points as well as promotional exams to five points. This would help ensure our hometown veterans, a vulnerable population for which unemployment have been especially high, are put back to work when they come home.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2013: A.3270; referred to veterans' affairs 2012: A.9234; held for consideration in veterans' affairs   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
