BILL NUMBER:S7766

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the
executive law, in relation to requiring the division of veterans' affairs
to maintain an employment portal on its website

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To provide information regarding
resources that are available to assist veterans in' obtaining
employment by maintaining a veterans' employment portal on the
division's website.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
This bill would
require the Division
of Veterans' Affairs to provide information regarding resources
available to assist veterans in obtaining employment by maintaining a
veterans' employment portal on the division's website. The portal
shall provide virtual links to appropriate governmental programs on
the federal and state level including but not limited to the United
States Department of Labor and the New York State Department of
Labor, Such information required under this subdivision shall be
maintained and updated annually. It may be available in print as well.

JUSTIFICATION:
Having served and defended our nation,
veterans are
well-trained and highly skilled and will add value to any company.
But today's veterans face unique challenges.

As of June 2011, one million veterans were unemployed and the jobless
rate for post 9/11 veterans was 13.3 percent.

These veterans tend to be young and many worked in sections that were
among the hardest hit by the recession. Post 9/11 veterans were more
likely to be employed in mining, construction, manufacturing,
transportation and utilities, all industries that experienced
significant drops in employment during 2008-2009.

And as we end the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, over one million
service members are projected to leave the military between 2011 and
2018.

We have an obligation to make sure our veterans are able to navigate
this difficult labor marker and succeed in the civilian workforce.

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 and regulations


necessary for the implementation of this act On its effective date
shall be promulgated on or before such date.
