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;

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
