AN ACT to amend the public authorities law, in relation to providing for
  independent  personnel  review  boards  for  the New York city transit
  authority and the triborough bridge and tunnel authority

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Short  title. This act shall be known and may be cited as
the "New York city transit authority and triborough  bridge  and  tunnel
authority civil service reorganization act".
  S 2. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature hereby finds and
declares as follows:
  (a)  The  New  York city transit authority, created by section 1201 of
the public authorities law, was formed in 1953 to  acquire  and  operate
the  transit facilities formerly operated by the board of transportation
of the city of New York, and those employees  were  transferred  to  the
authority  from  the city with the same status they held when in service
to the city. Since  1953,  appointment,  promotion  and  continuance  of
employment  of  all employees of the authority have been governed by the
provisions of the civil service law and the rules of the municipal civil
service commission of the city.
  (b) The triborough bridge and tunnel authority, created by section 552
of the public authorities law, was formed in 1939 to acquire, construct,
maintain and improve the bridges and tunnels under the  jurisdiction  of
such  authority.  Since  1939, appointment, promotion and continuance of
employment of all employees of the authority have been governed  by  the
provisions of the civil service law and the rules of the municipal civil
service commission of the city.
  (c) The provision of governmental services, including the provision of
transit  services  and  services  relating  to  bridges and tunnels, has
become increasingly complex since the creation  of  the  New  York  city
transit  authority  and  the triborough bridge and tunnel authority, and
the continued exercise of jurisdiction by the  municipal  civil  service
