BILL NUMBER:S3684

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the military law, in relation to the definition of naval
militia

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

This bill would amend the definition of naval militia to conform with
federal law in recognizing it as constituting the naval forces of the
state of New York.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

This bill would amend subdivision 2 of section 1 of the military law
to amend the definition of naval militia in order to conform with
federal law and legally recognize it as constituting the naval forces
of the state of New York.

JUSTIFICATION:

Pursuant to Section 43 of the Military Law, the New York Naval Militia
is the naval force of the organized militia. In furtherance of such
section it is comprised of the units and personnel forming the naval
militia of the state and such other naval units as may be organized
including the personnel who are enlisted, appointed or commissioned
therein. Ninety-five percent of the persons who are members of the
New York naval militia must be members of the United States naval
reserve, the United States marine corps reserve or the United States
coast guard reserve.

Section 43 further states that the New York naval militia must be
commanded by:

(a) an officer of the United States navy or naval reserve who has
attained a grade of commander or higher;
(b) an officer of the United States marine corps or marine corps
reserve who has attained a grade of lieutenant colonel or higher; or
(c) an officer of the United States coast guard or coast guard
reserve who has attained a grade of commander or higher.

The commanding officer of the New York naval militia must maintain
liaison with the United States navy, United States marine corps,
United States coast guard, and their reserve components.

Pursuant to federal law, the New York naval militia is also legally
recognized as the naval forces of the state of New York.

This bill seeks to specify this fact in the opening definition
(subdivision 1 of section 2) of the Military Law, and thereby conform
such definition with both federal law and section 43 of the military
law.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:


2010: S.5767 - Passed Senate

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

This bill could have a fiscal benefit for the New York naval militia
in conforming its state definition with that recognized in federal law.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act would take effect immediately.
