Sponsor Memo

BILL NUMBER: S737

TITLE OF BILL :
CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY proposing an
amendment to section 6 of article 5 of the constitution, in relation
to veterans' credits for civil service appointments and promotions


PURPOSE :
Would allow any person who has received an appointment through civil
service to be entitled to additional credit if said individual was
classified as a veteran with disabilities after the first appointment
or promotion.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Amend Article 5 Section 6 of the Constitution to provide that in
circumstances where a person has used a veteran's credit for civil
service purposes and thereafter is classified as a disabled veteran,
the additional credit which would be garnered by that designation may
be used for a subsequent test or appointment.

JUSTIFICATION :
Current law only allows veterans credit to be used once and does not
allow for the veteran to apply additional credits if they are
classified as disabled at a later date. This legislation would benefit
individuals who, through no fault of their own, were not classified as
a veteran with disabilities at the time of their first appointment.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
2007-08, S.6713.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
Immediately upon amendment of the constitution pursuant to its
provisions.
