AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to the maximum age  of  a
  member of the New York state police


  Section 1. Subdivision 3 of section  215  of  the  executive  law,  as
amended  by  chapter  478  of  the  laws  of 2004, is amended to read as
  3. The sworn members of the New York state police shall  be  appointed
by  the  superintendent  and  permanent appointees may be removed by the
superintendent only after a hearing. No person shall be appointed to the
New York state police force as a sworn member unless he or she shall  be
a  citizen  of  the  United  States,  between the ages of twenty-one and
[twenty-nine] THIRTY-FIVE years  except  that  in  the  superintendent's
discretion,  the  maximum  age  may  be  extended to [thirty-five] FORTY
years. Notwithstanding any other provision of  law  or  any  general  or
special law to the contrary the time spent on military duty, not exceed-
ing a total of [six] FIVE years, shall be subtracted from the age of any
applicant  who  has passed his or her [twenty-ninth] THIRTY-FIFTH birth-
day, solely for the purpose of permitting qualification as  to  age  and
for no other purpose. Such limitations as to age however shall not apply
to  persons appointed to the positions of counsel, first assistant coun-
sel, assistant counsel, and assistant deputy superintendent for employee
relations nor to any person appointed to the bureau of criminal investi-
gation pursuant to section two hundred sixteen of this article nor shall
any person be appointed unless he or she  has  fitness  and  good  moral
character  and shall have passed a physical and mental examination based
upon standards provided by the rules and regulations of the  superinten-
dent. Appointments shall be made for a probationary period which, in the
