BILL NUMBER:S6371

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the civil service law, in relation to
making the Iranian Hostage Crisis "time of war" for civil service
credit

PURPOSE: Provides that the periods of the Iranian Hostage Crisis and
from November 21, 1979 to October 20, 1981 be "time of war" periods
for civil service credit.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1: Amends paragraph (c) of subdivision 1 of section 85 of the
civil service law by adding two new subparagraphs 9 and 10 to read as
follows:

Subparagraph 9: Hostilities participated in by military forces of the
United State, blown as the Iranian Hostage Crisis, in the Indian
Ocean/Iran/Yeman, from the eighth day of December, 1978 to the sixth
day of June, 1979, as established by receipt of the Armed Forces
Expeditionary Medal, the Navy Expeditionary Medal, or the Marine Corps
Expeditionary Medal.

Subparagraph 10: Hostilities participated in by military forces of the
United State in the Indian Ocean/Iran/, from the twenty-first day of
November, 1979 to the twentieth day of October, 1981, as established
by receipt of the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, the Navy
Expeditionary Medal, or the Marine Corps Expeditionary Medal

Section 2: allows the act to take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION: US Military veterans from New York State who defended
our country during hostilities should have the ability to earn civil
service promotional points. Veterans who served in hostile actions
during the Lebanon. Granada, and Panama crises may be eligible for
certain state benefits, but those who served during the Iranian
Hostage Crisis have been overlooked and are not able to receive these
same benefits. This legislation will allow our brave soldiers to earn
civil service credit if they served during the Iranian Hostage Crisis
and during hostilities participated in by the military of the United
States November 21, 1979 to October 20, 1981.
