BILL NUMBER:S1562

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:
2011-12 S.1311; 2009-10 S.737; 2007-08, S.6713.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
