BILL NUMBER:S4402

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to
requiring the division of veterans' affairs to provide an internet
connection to correlate military occupations and skills into civilian
translations and terms

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

To amend the executive law, in relation to requiring the Division of
Veterans' Affairs to provide an Internet connection to correlate
military occupations and skills into civilian terms.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Subdivision 7 of Section 353 of the Executive Law is amended.

JUSTIFICATION:

Many Iraq and Afghanistan veterans leave the active-duty military only
to find that their skills are not understood by civilian employers.
According to a 2007 survey by Military.com, 61 percent of employers do
not believe they have a "complete understanding of the qualifications
ex-service members offer," and more than three-quarters of veterans
entering the civilian workforce reported "an inability to effectively
transfer their military skills to civilian terms."

This bill would be a helpful tool for veterans returning from Iraq and
Afghanistan to help navigate the job market.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill in Senate.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall have
become a law, provided that any rules or regulations necessary for the
implementation of this act shall be promulgated on or before such
effective date.
