AN ACT to amend the civil service law, in relation to promotional exams

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

  Section  1. Section 85-a of the civil service law, as amended by chap-
ter 376 of the laws of 2013, is amended to read as follows:
  S 85-a. Additional credits allowed children and siblings of firefight-
ers, police  officers,  emergency  medical  technicians  and  paramedics
killed in the line of duty. 1. Additional credit authorized.  Additional
credits  shall  be allowed children and siblings of firefighters, police
officers, emergency medical technicians and  paramedics  killed  in  the
line  of  duty,  as "child" and "sibling" in this section in competitive
examinations for original appointment. (a) On all eligible lists result-
ing from competitive examinations, the names of eligible  persons  shall
be  entered  in  the  order  of their respective final earned ratings on
examinations, with the name of the  eligible  person  with  the  highest
final  earned  ratings at the head of such list, provided, however, that
for the purpose  of  determining  final  earned  ratings,  children  and
siblings of firefighters, police officers, emergency medical technicians
and  paramedics  killed in the line of duty shall be entitled to receive
an additional ten points  in  a  competitive  examination  for  original
appointment  in  the  same  municipality  in  which his or her parent or
sibling has served AND AN ADDITIONAL FIVE POINTS IN A COMPETITIVE  EXAM-
INATION  FOR  PROMOTION  IN  THE  SAME  MUNICIPALITY IN WHICH HIS OR HER
PARENT OR SIBLING HAS SERVED. For the  purposes  of  this  paragraph,  a
police  officer  or  firefighter  shall  be deemed to have "served" in a
municipality if he or she was employed by, or worked primarily in,  that
municipality.
  (b)  Such  additional credit shall be added to the final earned rating
of such child or sibling, as the case may be, after he or she has quali-
fied in the competitive examination and shall be  granted  only  at  the
time of establishment of the resulting eligible list.

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