BILL NUMBER:S3005

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the military law, in relation to the
definition of naval militia

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would amend the definition
of naval militia to conform with federal law in recognizing it as
constituting the naval forces of the state of New York.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill would amend subdivision 2
of section 1 of the military law to amend the definition of naval
militia in order to conform with federal law and legally recognize it
as constituting the naval forces of the state of New York.

JUSTIFICATION: Pursuant to Section 43 of the Military Law, the New
York Naval Militia is the naval force of the organized militia. In
furtherance of such section it is comprised of the units and personnel
forming the naval militia of the state and such other naval units as
may be organized including the personnel who are enlisted, appointed
or commissioned therein. Ninety-five percent of the persons who are
members of the New York naval militia must be members of the United
States naval reserve, the United States marine corps reserve or the
United States coast guard reserve.

Section 43 further states that the New York naval militia must be
commanded by:

(a) an officer of the United States navy or naval reserve who has
attained a grade of commander or higher; (b) an officer of the United
States marine corps or marine corps reserve who has attained a grade
of lieutenant colonel or higher; or (c) an officer of the United
States coast guard or coast guard reserve who has attained a grade of
commander or higher.

The commanding officer of the New York naval militia must maintain
liaison with the United States navy, United States marine corps,
United States coast guard, and their reserve components. Pursuant to
federal law, the New York naval militia is also legally recognized as
the naval forces of the state of New York. This bill seeks to specify
this fact in the opening definition (subdivision 1 of section 2) of
the Military Law, and thereby conform such definition with both
federal law and section 43 of the military law.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2010: S.5767 - Passed Senate

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: This bill could have a fiscal benefit for the
New York naval militia in conforming its state definition with that
recognized in federal law.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act would take effect immediately.
