Introduced  by  Sen.  BALL  --  read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Veterans, Homeland Securi-
  ty and Military Affairs

AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to enacting the "veterans
  employment act"

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  The executive law is amended by adding a new article 17-A
to read as follows:
                              ARTICLE 17-A
                         VETERANS EMPLOYMENT ACT
SECTION 369. SHORT TITLE.
        369-A. LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS.
        369-B. DEFINITIONS.
        369-C. TEMPORARY HIRING.
        369-D. DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL SERVICE RESPONSIBILITIES.
        369-E. REGULATIONS.
  S 369. SHORT TITLE. THIS ARTICLE SHALL BE KNOWN AND MAY  BE  CITED  AS
THE "VETERANS EMPLOYMENT ACT".
  S 369-A. LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS. THE LEGISLATURE HEREBY FINDS THAT IT IS
ESTIMATED  THAT  OVER  THE NEXT FIVE YEARS, FORTY-FOUR THOUSAND VETERANS
ARE EXPECTED TO RETURN TO THIS STATE FROM THEIR MILITARY  POSTS,  MAKING
THE  EMPIRE  STATE HOME TO ONE OF THE LARGEST VETERAN POPULATIONS IN THE
COUNTRY. SHOCKINGLY, THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE FOR POST-9/11 VETERANS IN NEW
YORK WAS 10.7% IN TWO THOUSAND TWELVE, WHICH IS NEARLY ONE PERCENT HIGH-
ER THAN THE NATIONAL AVERAGE AND HIGHER THAN THE  STATE'S  OVERALL  8.2%
UNEMPLOYMENT  RATE.  THE  LEGISLATURE HAS FOUND PREVIOUSLY THAT IT IS IN
THE INTEREST OF THE STATE TO ENSURE THAT RETURNING VETERANS HAVE EMPLOY-
MENT  OPPORTUNITIES  AVAILABLE  UPON  THEIR  SEPARATION  FROM   MILITARY
SERVICE.

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