AN ACT in relation to creating the public employees' fair employment act
  study commission


  Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds that the
public employees' fair employment act, as provided in article 14 of  the
civil service law, became effective in September of 1967 and has been in
effect  for  over 40 years. Representatives of both public employees and
employers have raised questions about the current law causing the legis-
lature to query whether  the  law,  as  currently  enacted,  effectively
addresses labor relations between public employers and public employees.
The legislature, therefore, deems it appropriate to review and study the
provisions  of  the  act  and  if  necessary, make recommendations as to
amendments that will improve  relations  between  public  employers  and
employees,  while  better  protecting the interests of public employees,
the state, public employers and the residents of New York state.
  S 2. The public employees' fair employment act  study  commission.  1.
There  is  hereby  established  a  commission to be known as the "public
employees' fair employment act study commission"  (hereinafter  referred
to in this section as the "commission"). The commission shall:
  (a) be composed of 13 members appointed in accordance with subdivision
2 of this section; and
  (b)  conduct  its  business  in accordance with the provisions of this
  2. The members shall be appointed for the life of  the  commission  as
  (a) 2 shall be appointed by the temporary president of the senate;
  (b) 1 shall be appointed by the minority leader of the senate;
  (c) 2 shall be appointed by the speaker of the assembly;
