BILL NUMBER:S1051

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the education law, in relation to changing the eligibility
dates for a military service recognition
scholarship to include the conflicts that occurred after June 1, 1982

PURPOSE:
To change the eligibility dates for a military enhanced recognition,
incentive and tribute scholarship to include all the military
conflicts that occurred on or after June 1, 1982

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill would act as an amendment to section 1, paragraph a of
subdivision 1 of the section 668-e of the education law, as added by
chapter 106 of the laws of 2003 to alter the eligibility dates for
those applying for academic scholarships regarding tribute to those
whom were wounded in military combat within specified years. The bill
would allow those children, spouses and financial dependents of a
member of the armed forces of the us or state organized militia who
served on or after June I, 1982 to qualify. These members must
qualify according to section 8 and 9 of section 1 of the military law
which states that the member must have resided legally in New York
state, died, became severely and permanently disabled or was
classified as missing in action in a combat theater or zone of
operations, or died as a result of injury or illness suffered or
incurred during such military service; or, while a legal resident of
New York State, died or became severely and permanently disabled as a
result of injury or illness suffered or incurred during military
training operations in preparation for duty in a combat theater or
zone of operations.

JUSTIFICATION:
The enactment of this bill would allow familial members or financial
dependents of New York State residents who were wounded or killed
while serving the United States military from June 1, 1982 onward to
qualify for academic scholarships such as the NYS Regents Award for
Children of Veterans and the Military Service Recognition
Scholarship. This bill would also grant well deserved recognition and
tribute to those whom bravely fought and were injured or died
protecting their country and the State of New York.
