          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
     1    Section 1. The civil service law is amended by adding  a  new  section
     2  59-e to read as follows:
     3    §  59-e.  Promotions of certain personnel of the sanitation department
     4  of the city of New York. 1.  The legislature hereby finds  and  declares
     5  that  the  continued, uninterrupted, adequate and efficient operation of
     6  the sanitation department of the city of New York is necessary  for  the
     7  general welfare of the people; that such adequate operation involves and
     8  requires  personnel with highly specialized ability, skill, training and
     9  knowledge, which necessitate that vacancies in the sanitation department
    10  of the city of New York in the positions of General Superintendent 2 and
    11  General Superintendent 3, shall be  filled  as  far  as  practicable  by
    12  promotion  from  among  persons holding competitive class positions in a
    13  lower grade in the sanitation department of the  city  of  New  York  in
    14  which  the  vacancy exists, provided that such lower grade positions are
    15  in direct line of promotion, as determined by such sanitation department
    16  or the municipal commission.
    17    2. Promotion shall be based on merit  and  fitness  as  determined  by
    18  competitive examination, due weight being given to seniority. The previ-
    19  ous  training  and experience of the candidates, and performance ratings
    20  where available, may be considered and given due weight  as  factors  in
    21  determining the relative merit and fitness of candidates for promotion.
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
