proposing an amendment to section 6 of article 5 of the constitution, in
  relation to veterans'  credits  for  civil  service  appointments  and

  Section  1. Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That section 6 of arti-
cle 5 of the constitution be amended to read as follows:

all of the civil divisions thereof, including cities and villages, shall
be made according to merit and fitness to  be  ascertained,  as  far  as
practicable,  by  examination  which,  as  far  as practicable, shall be

honorable circumstances from such service, shall be entitled to  receive
five  points additional credit in a competitive examination for original
appointment and two and one-half points additional credit in an examina-

performance of duty in any war and his or her disability is certified by
the  United  States department of veterans affairs to be in existence at
the time of application for appointment or promotion, he or she shall be
entitled to receive ten points additional credit in a competitive  exam-
ination for original appointment and five points additional credit in an
examination  for promotion. Such additional credit shall be added to the
final earned rating of such member after he or she has qualified  in  an
examination and shall be granted only at the time of establishment of an
eligible list. No such member shall receive the additional credit grant-
