        Introduced  by  M.  of  A.  LEVENBERG  --  read once and referred to the
          Committee on Governmental Operations
 
        AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to  ensuring  that  color
          vision requirements for appointment of police officers are tailored to
          only eliminate individuals with extreme color vision deficiencies from
          eligibility

          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. Section 840 of the executive law is amended by adding a new
     2  subdivision 2-c to read as follows:
     3    2-c. Rules and/or regulations promulgated pursuant to subdivision  two
     4  of  this  section  relating to color vision requirements for individuals
     5  eligible for appointment as police officers shall be  tailored  to  only
     6  eliminate  individuals  with extreme color vision deficiencies from such
     7  eligibility. A police officer or applicant who fails to meet an  initial
     8  color  vision standard shall be deemed to meet such standard upon demon-
     9  strating that they can correctly discriminate colors via  a  field  test
    10  approved by the council and conducted by the county, city, town, village
    11  or  police  district.  For  the  purposes  of this subdivision, the term
    12  "extreme color vision deficiencies" shall mean extreme anomalous  trich-
    13  romatism  or  monochromacy  color  vision, as determined through testing
    14  approved by the council, which may include a Farnsworth Dichotomous D-15
    15  Test or any other test designed and documented to identify extreme anom-
    16  alous trichromatic, dichromatic or monochromatic color vision.
    17    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
