AN ACT in relation to establishing a special commission on  compensation
  for state employees designated managerial or confidential, and provid-
  ing for its powers and duties


  Section 1. (a) On the first of April of every fourth year,  commencing
April  1, 2013, there shall be established for such year a commission on
managerial or confidential state employee compensation to examine, eval-
uate and make recommendations with respect to adequate levels of compen-
sation and non-salary benefits  for  managerial  or  confidential  state
employees.  In  accordance  with  the  provisions  of  this section, the
commission shall:
  (i) examine the prevailing adequacy of pay levels and non-salary bene-
fits received by managerial or confidential employees of the  state  and
determine whether any of such pay levels warrant adjustment; and
  (ii)  determine  whether,  for any of the four years commencing on the
first of April of such years, following the year in which the commission
is established, the annual salaries for the managerial  or  confidential
employees of the state warrant adjustment.
  In  discharging  its responsibilities under paragraphs (i) and (ii) of
this subdivision, the commission shall take into account all appropriate
factors including, but not limited to: the administrative withholding of
managerial or confidential employee salary increases pursuant to chapter
10 of  the  laws  of  2008;  the  overall  economic  climate;  rates  of
inflation; changes in public-sector spending; the levels of compensation
and non-salary benefits received by unionized state employees; the main-
tenance  of or attainment of proper salary differential between supervi-
sors and their subordinates; the levels of compensation  and  non-salary
