BILL NUMBER:S352 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the civil service law, in relation to the application of veteran's credits to civil service examinations PURPOSE: This bill would allow individuals, if qualified, to add veteran's credits to their civil service examination score after they have already been placed on an eligible list. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill would amend subdivision 3 of section 85 of the civil service law to allow belated application for an additional credit as a veteran or disabled veteran by an applicant who has already been placed on an eligible list but subsequent to such placement has been ordered to active military duty, other than training, to a combat theater or combat zone of operations that qualifies such applicant for the additional credit as a veteran or disabled veteran provided such list has not expired and provided further that the applicant makes such application within two months after receiving an honorable discharge or being released under honorable circumstances.
